To Courtney's Family:
Peg may remember me. I had the pleasure of speaking with her years ago. I was a researcher on Courtney's freshman dormitory floor, and spoke with Courtney every year for five years. I recently sought to interview her again, and went onto her fb page. I was deeply saddened to hear the news of her passing. Courtney was a joy and a light. I always looked forward to my conversations with her, as she was so refreshingly honest and real. I want to extend my deepest condolences to all of you. She will never be forgotten.
Thank you Courtney for all of your Advocacy for Endometriosis! Hoping you are at peace now and no longer suffering.
Sending strength and lots of love to Courtney's family and friends to get through this tragic time...Hoping you can find solace in one another...

My thoughts go out to Courtney's family and loved ones; I can't imagine the grief you must be feeling. We, Courtney's endo sisters, are here to listen or help in any way we can.
