For Courtney...with love

Dear Courtney,

You don't know me, at least in the flesh..I am not a person to hold my words and most defenately do not hold my feelings. I am an open sould and mind...but not now. I logged on to see what was new, and am speechless



For a first time, I am completely speechless and to be honest I have absolutely no idea what I can say or may say...I have hundreds of thoughts about your current stage (let's call it a stage, one of many you will thread on), and no matter what I try to write, nothing comes out.

I think there is nothing I can say to make you feel better, and worse my inability to help you is making me terribly mad and sad. I am sorry that for the first time...I can't talk.

All i can say is we pray for you, and not a day goes by I don't think about you...

I can't, no matter how hard I think and imagine, have an idea how you are feeling, and what I could do to help.

All I can do is say hi, hang in there, and remeber, you have a friend 3500 miles due east of you....

My love to you, and hold tight....

Que a nossa Senhora de Fatima te proteja...

Boa sorte.

Alex and family

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Alex, I am sitting by Courtney bedside. She wants me to type the following as she is not able to do it herself. Courtney's words:

Thank you for coming back, Alex! I don't like losing contact with friends. I think of you and your family often. My love to you and your family!! Courtney

Courtney,
A lot of people from around the world are thinking of you right now. Lock that thought in your brain, young lady.

Well done well said Alex, a lot of us, (I know I do) check in to see hows she's doing, but can't express our thoughts.

Courtney has been and will be in our constant prayers

Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies
