I've lost my best friend and loyal UK football buddy. She fought as hard as she could but the cancer eventually won.
Mike, I'm so sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry.

My heart goes out to you, Mike. I lost my mother in September and, as hard as that was and is, I can't begin to imagine the pain of losing my sister. Rest in peace, Jo Ann.

I'm sorry to hear about Jo Ann. From all that you have written about her, I am sure that you have a passel of memories to reflect on for many years to come. May those memories help you even as you miss her.

Oh, Mike - I am so sorry. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
August 08, 2007 at 04:10 PM
Oh Mike. I knew it was coming but so hard to fit in my head since I've always seen such smiling, happy pictures of her. You have my deepest sympathy.

I am terribly sorry for the loss of Jo Ann;she did fight hard, not just the cancer, but to live and die the way she wanted. And I admire that.

I love that photo of Jo Ann.
I'm so sorry Mike. Wish I could find better words than that. This is just heartbreaking.
My deepest sympathies to you and the whole Courtney family.

(Cancer never wins anything though).

I am so deeply sorry! I did not think it would be this soon.
I love this picture of her, too.
It definitely shows her spirit.
My sympathies to the entire family.
She is with your parents and Paul now and is happy to be where she is.

The worst thing cancer does it that it makes you say, "Gee I wish you could have known her." There's an ongoing grief in that sentence that you never get over.
Please know that the three of us are thinking of you and sending out good thoughts.
Deus tu conversus vivificabus nos
Et plebs tua laetabitur in te
Ostende nobis Domine misericordiam nuam

Words are so inadequate, but they're all I have across the miles. I'm sorry for your pain, Mike, and that of all who knew and loved her.
Wishing you strength and joyful memories of her spirit.
Rest easy, Jo Ann.
