Courtney Neville's Family

On October 23rd 2019 at 6:10 pm, while the sun was setting, 36 yr old Courtney Neville died of an acute onset of viral encephalitis. She began to feel sick just 4 short days before being put into a coma that she would never wake up from.  Courtney was the mother of three little girls; 6 yr old Lila, 5 yr old Cora and 4 month old Louisa.  She was the most loving, supportive, pillar of strength for her husband Dan, her family and her friends. Courtney's elegance, grace, love and calming demeanor was the glue that held her family together. This sudden tragedy has left her family and friends in shock, attempting to pick up the pieces and find a way to help her daughter's remember their momma.

   Her husband, Dan, is left to carry the responsibilities of Mr. Mom with the help of family and friends. He has taken a step back from work to focus on his daughters as they continue to try to make peace with the tragic loss of their best friend and mother. 

   Family and friends have come together to help in any way they can, knowing that no amount of money will ever be enough to replace this beautiful woman that was taken too soon. 
    In order to allow the Neville family to focus on grieving, remembering and coping with Courtney's loss, we are hoping for some help with the funeral, food, clothing, education, child care and counseling costs that may be needed. This is a nightmare for all of us and something that we could never prepare for. We have no idea as to the obstacles that will come from this but we know that if we stick together, that we can lean on each other with every passing day. If you feel compelled to support, we would be grateful.
