  1. Missy, Dave and Kendall – I am so sad for your loss of such a precious daughter and sister. Courtney’s angelic beauty and sweetness were so engaging and intoxicating. Here is an excerpt from a poem that I hope will bring some peace to your hearts in your grief. “Death is nothing at all, I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I, and you are you; whatever we were to each other, that, we still are… Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well.” May God Bless baby Courtney and hold her tenderly until you are reunited in heaven. The waiting will seem long in years but I believe good things will come to you in Courtney’s memory and honor while you are apart. God love, bless and keep you all – Karen

  2. We are so sorry for the loss of your precious angel, but know that she’s now God’s little angel watching over her parents and her beautiful sister.

  3. I am so glad to have met that little angel on several occasions and held her while she laughed and cried and made happy baby noises. I don’t really know what to say to you but I read this once after one of Dave’s and my best friend passed away too soon and it helped a little. “And if I should go before you, know that part of me still remains…You will not see me, yet I will be there beside you. You will not touch me, yet I will live in your heart and memory always. Have faith that one day we will walk hand in hand in eternity. Until then, live your life for life is good…And know that I am with you.” Thinking of you guys and sending out heartfelt condolences on the passing of Courtney Eleanor Buss

  4. Dave and Missy, We are thinking of you and will remember Courtney in our thoughts and prayers always. It was so great to see all of your smiling faces in the video memorial. Courtney will forever be a wonderfully beautiful little angel.

  5. I have no idea as to what to say about your precious angel. I know that she will be missed and that she was loved by so many people. Take care. Love, Aunt Sandy

  6. There is so much that we feel in our hearts but find so hard to say. Dave and Missy you are in my prayers. Even if your angel is not on this plane any more she will always be in your hearts and ours.

  7. Missy, Dave and Kendall, Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers each day. Courtney was a beautiful angel whose time here on Earth was all too brief. I pray that your special memories of her will help provide some comfort during this difficult time. In my heart, I do not believe that God takes life, but rather gives life, which makes her departure so difficult to comprehend. But, I do believe that Courtney’s lovely spirit will continue to live on through all 3 of you. I wish I could have been there to provide additional love and support. Please know that you are in my heart! Much Love, Megan

  8. As our family has been blessed with the gift of baby Courtney, may she be blessed as a little angel, at peace always. Our love to Missy, Dave and Kendall in the days ahead.

  9. Auntie Michele will always LOVE her sweet little peanut. I will remember your gorgeous blue eyes staring back at me, and getting you to smile by whispering in your ear, despite how you might have been feeling. I will remember the feel of your soft skin, and giving you lots of kisses. I will remember holding your little hand while you were sleeping, and cradling you in the tub for bath time. I will remember the essence of every single moment I spent with you, and how I could never get over just how beautiful you were, Courtney. I will treasure the short time we had together for the rest of my life, and I will think of you every single day. I Love you with all of my heart, and hope to see you again someday. I know You are finally at Peace, and in a beautiful place. You will always be my little Sweet Pea. With all of my LOVE, HUGS, & KISSES, Auntie Michele 12/05/2008

  10. Dear Dave and Missy, We’re going to miss our little darling Courtney so much. She was a beautiful light in our hearts. I treasure the time I had with her, just being close to her was so wonderful. I’ll miss her every day of my life and she will be in my heart forever. All my love, Grandma Eleanor

  11. I remember the day that Missy and I went to the hospital to be with Courtney. She was having tests. We took turns holding her all day and she hardly fussed with all that was being done to her. I not only fell in love with her but admired her spunk and courage. Courtney is the most beautiful baby I have ever seen. When she looked at me with those beautiful blue eyes I just melt! With her Beauty and Purity she did not die but did a transformation from human on earth to Angel in Heaven. Love, Grandpa John

  12. We are all so blessed to have had Courtney in our lives and she will live in our hearts forever. She is truly our precious angel.


  14. Dear Missy and Dave, George and I are so sorry for your loss. One thing is for sure, Courtney had the best parents she could have hoped for even if it was just for a short time on earth. May God bless you both and comfort you during your time of grief.

  15. Courtney was a beautiful little baby. We know how much you loved her and can only image how difficult a time this is for you. You are in our thoughts and prayers. With all our love, Marti and Bruce
