    Courtney would be mad if I didn’t come on here and make fun of whoevers job it was to proofread this and didn’t see that the word “andante” was just supposed to be the word “and”. We would have a lot of laughs at their expense and ridicule them rightfully so…….Andante that is why we loved each other so much”

    Myself and the entire O’Konski family, Tom, Marnie, her husband Steve, TC, his wife Tina, and Taylor are so saddened by this tragedy. Courtney and the entire Littlewood family was such an important part of our family from the first day we met them 35 years ago. Courtney brought happiness wherever she went. She was so good to my mother right up to the end, for which we are forever grateful. Life can be so unfair and so short. We are honored to have known and loved Courtney for the time we had and to be mentioned here. Courtney will live forever in my heart! ❤️

    To the Littlewood family,
    I am devastated to hear of Courtney’s passing and send my love and condolences. Courtney lit up every room she went in, her laugh is unforgettable and she will truly be missed. I want to share with you last time courtney and I spoke late one night not too long ago, that she referred to her mom and dad as her best friends. I love the bond we shared since 6th grade and could here her call my name all the way down the hallway. I will speak of her often and always remember the times we shared.

    “Andante“ this is another reminder to check in on friends every now and again! I’ve known Courtney since I was a senior in high school and we were always close! She will always have a special place in my heart. Such a good kid and we could pick up where we left off just like that even randomly on Facebook and laugh our asses off! Too many funny stories. This one hit me really hard. Life really isn’t fair sometimes and that’s just a fact. My sincere condolences to her whole family and all her close friends! Gonna really miss you Girl!

  12. Jill Pendergast on April 26, 2020 at 9:15 pm

    All of the pictures, videos and kind words posted about Courtney brought me back so many wonderful memories of our friendship. She is without a doubt one of the funniest people I have ever met, I can hear her making fun of me followed by a giggle like it was yesterday. I absolutely cherish the time I was able to spend with such a true character of person and a kind soul. She would have been there for anyone one of us on the drop of a dime. I wish so greatly that her time wasn’t cut short. Endless thoughts and prayers to the littlewood family.

  13. Julie Piccinin on April 26, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    I’m so heartbroken about my best friend. Not a day goes by where I don’t think about her and the last few months being in so much pain. I wish I could of taken that pain away from her. I have so many great memories with her and it will always put a smile on my face. Every time we hung up the phone we said I love you ff. That was my last txt with her as well. Life just isn’t fair I wish you were still here. I’m so sorry for her whole family. My heart breaks for them. I’ll miss and love you forever ff!

  21. Jayme Briggs on April 27, 2020 at 2:15 am

    I met Courtney many years ago while in college with Lindsey Cook and many Cook gatherings after. She had this energy about her that was infectious every time I saw her. She always welcomed me as a friend. I know she will be missed. My condolences to her family and friends.

  24. Mari DiBenedetto on April 27, 2020 at 2:48 pm

    Courtney is and will forever be so missed by all of us. Her spirit and energy was such a large presence in every room she entered that there will forever be a void that cannot be filled. I’m so heartbroken by all of this and hear her giggle in my head as I think back to all of our great memories. I will forever hear it as if it were yesterday. She really was the kindest, funniest little nana at heart and I will love and miss her always. My thoughts and prayers are with her entire family and everyone who loved her as much as I did.

  25. Marie Rountree on April 27, 2020 at 3:16 pm

    No words can express how sorry we are to learn of Courtney’s passing. She was a bight light in
    this world and although she is gone from our sight, the many memories we have of her, will
    never fade. I will always remember her sweet smile, her infectious laughter and the antics of the
    “dynamic duo”… I pray that the memories you have will bring you comfort, and God will give you strength and courage to
    bear the pain of the loss of you beautiful daughter.

    With love and heartfelt sympathy
    Marie, Tom and Rountree Family

  27. Tom Melanson on April 27, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    We are so sad to hear of Courtney’s passing. We were so fortunate to spend a lot of time over the years with her and her wonderful family. She was a “sister” to Matt and Melissa and we always “lit up” when we were with her, whether it was at Watson, the O’Konski get-togethers, Bay Pointe or just around town. A BEAUTIFUL person. Our heartfelt condolences to Jim, Denise and the boys and our fond remembrances will always be there. Love, Tm, Terri, Melissa and Matt Melanson

  28. Susan P. Smith on April 28, 2020 at 12:09 am

    Courtney was an amazing student in my class at BHS. She was always a bright light when she came through the door each day. I am so sorry to hear of her passing.

  29. Taylor (O'Konski Krumsheid) Lincoln on April 28, 2020 at 12:37 am

    From the day I was brought home from the hospital, Courtney was there and just like that she became one of the brightest lights in my life. She, along with the entire Littlewood family were seamlessly engrained into my family in a way many people could not relate to. The love, heartaches, victories, losses and many of life’s other precious moments were shared for so many years between the doors of 289 and 299. At no year in my life can I think of a time that didn’t involve that contagious laugh of Courtney’s, that “ohhh my heart” of pure joy and happiness from her and that deep selfless love she had for the people she loved. God how that girl could light up a room. I only feel it’s appropriate to thank you Court, thank you for being a big sister. Thank you for all the times playing Barbies, thank you for taking me to my first house party (hehe don’t ask my age, we kept that secret for years), thank you for all the summer pool dates, for being there for all of my milestones in life and for being by my side at my wedding. Finally thank you for always being your authentic self. You will be missed but I know never forgotten for you loved fiercely so you will be remembered fiercely. May you rest in the sweetest peace.

  30. Liz Maestas on April 28, 2020 at 9:36 am

    Sending the Littlewood’s all our love. I’m sure Courtney is finding a way to mess with Blake and hopefully reminding him, that his little sister is never far. Praying for you all during this unnatural time.

  31. Lauren DesLauriers on April 29, 2020 at 12:42 pm

    To say “One of a kind” is an understatement. Mari and I have spent sometime lately just talking about Courtney and trying to put into words what made her so special. But it’s hard to unless you knew her….and if you were lucky enough to know her you just get it. You just get how she was special and you just get how this loss is a devastating one for this world. Whenever there were gatherings that I knew she might be at I would have to ask Mari – Is Courtney coming? Because if she was well then we knew there would be many laughs…without her even trying she would make us laugh. She had such a good heart. One of the first things I thought of was the rainbow bridge and her dogs greeting her. My deepest condolences to the Littlewood Family-I pray and I know she is feeling all of this love up in Heaven.

  32. Tina O'Konski on April 30, 2020 at 2:02 pm

    My heart goes out to the entire Littlewood family for their great loss. Courtney was the kind of person who cared about the people around her, and always made them laugh with her big, bubbly personality. I know she will be missed greatly. Xo

  33. Joan Best on May 1, 2020 at 4:07 am

    My Heart goes out to all of you at this most devastating time. She was a wonderful girl & I am so sorry for your loss. She was a sweetheart

  34. Dorothy Erb on May 15, 2020 at 11:11 am

    I am so very very sorry to learn about the passing of beautiful Courtney. The loss of a child is a very painful thing to endure. My thoughts are with you and her family. I only met her a few times but she was a pure delight. Again I am so very sorry.
