Sounds great.

I am sorry to say I missed most of the original posts as they were happening.

Like everyone else I read the threads and was moved by so many things, Courtney's strength of character and incredible attitude. Also the character and attitude of her family, and also by the camaraderie of so many of the members here. No matter how crummy I was feeling I couldn't justify it after reading those messages. It was a touchstone for me, and probably many others, to see how brave and courageous people deal with tough times.


I would gladly fly a flag to show my support. I am not sure if I will be able to cross the lake to attend but will be trying to work that into my summer plans.

I'd be glad to be the POC for the Chesapeake group but be advised that we can't really do anything before about May when we expect to be back in town.

As I read this post I couldn’t help but think of my 9 yo grand daughter Courtney Alexandria. She is my life, my every breath and could not even begin to imagine the pain. I held her and told her how much I love her as I shared this story with her.

In solidarity with my fellow sailors be it known that the S.V. Courtney Alexandria will sail August 28, 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico proudly flying a pink ribbon.
Courtney you will not be forgotten !!!

Bubb (Mike) know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and Courtney.

The crew of the S.V. Courtney Alexandria
Victor, Kathy, Courtney

Thanx MMR, got it, there's no such thing as too many caring people. I think I can get us some publicity in both Spinsheet and the Capital - this girl will NOT be forgotten!
