Courtney Curtis went to my school. She was a really nice girl everyone new her. Her bestfriend was my brothers girlfriend and it really hurt our family when we found out what happend. Everyone loved Courtney ecpeccially her sister Ashley. Courtney's locker is still there and there are signs on it from her closest friends and family members, so everytime that i pass her locker i think of her and how she is in a better place now and she is watching over the little town of Westcliffe,Colorado.
