Piglet?" "Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just

Family and Friends,
it is impossible to articulate how much our daughter meant to us and how we will
miss her, we wanted you to know the profound impact she has had on our lives.
Her life, though short, has changed us forever.
And while the last 10 months have been difficult for us they have also
been incredibly rewarding. In
Kourtneys brief time with us, she showed us love, a fighting spirit and the
importance of family and friends. So
while we are here today in mourning, lets not forget the incredible
celebration of Kourtneys short life. We
would not trade this time and the experience for anything on this earth.
would like to thank you all for holding our hands. As a result this difficult journey, we have come to realize
what wonderful people were surrounded by.
Just when were feeling our worst and wondering how well get through
this, the phone rings, or you show up at our door. You cried with us, you sent cards and gifts, you cooked for
us, you called just to check on us, you did research and made calls for us.
And, most importantly, you loved our little girl and made her smile.
Each person in this room has a special place in our hearts forever.
feel you grieving with us. Weve
felt it all along. We know how much
you, too, will miss your granddaughter, your niece, your cousin, and your
special friend. We feel like
Kourtney has touched so many lives. We
hope she has made you more appreciative, more caring, more compassionate, and
more empathetic. We hope she has
brought you closer to the people you love.
Never take them for granted. She
made us realize how short life is and how we should be grateful for what we
have. She has made us all better
wanted so bad to spend Christmas with Kourtney. Its hard to imagine how well get through the holidays
and the next several months. But we
know youll be there. And we know
youll miss her too.
people dont believe in angels, but we do.
For we have touched one, and held one, and loved one, for 10 months.
Believe in Angels.
Love and Gratitude,
