Katie Vaughn Death – Dead | Katie Jo Vaughn Obituary – Passed Away
Katie Vaughn Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Katie Vaughn.
As I read the eloquent words others have written and all of the love that has been poured out for sweet Katie Vaughn I realize just don’t have the gift of eloquence at the moment, my heart is hurting so deeply, but I do have love and memories.
When I shared the news with Meridian, all I could get out through the sobs is “our friend went to heaven”. I turned the phone around and pointed at her photo. Meridian said “Katie Jo???” She was so confused, and looked up at me with her sad big blue eyes and said “but she’s not even a grown up yet”. Explaining to a child, that a child sometimes goes to heaven is so hard. Its unimaginable for us all. MY heart breaks for her entire family and community! She was on all the sports teams and a cheerleader in her small town. There is a hole in so many hearts and there are so many mourning. Please pray for each of us!! Amy York Pope thank you for sharing your amazing daughter with us!! We love you all!!
Katie Jo, you were one of a kind!! You truly lived your life to the FULLEST!! “from camouflage and cowboy boots to evening gowns and high heels” there will never be another Katie Jo!! Cinderella will never be the same without you, your country twang, your amazing smile, your friendly and outgoing spirit, your bare feet, your silly faces and side eyes with big sneaky smiles, your hugs and love, and so many other things that made you YOU.
I’ll never forget how you were always so kind to my baby girl even when she hugged you so tight it dented your hair, when you chose to get on the floor in pretty dresses to play on her level, even when you let her bony self sit in your lap for hours on end and talk your face off, especially when you would walk away from peers to walk over and see my baby and make her feel so special, when you dance and sing with her like no one is watching, even when she wanted to play with the fringe on your talent outfit you always stopped and let her EVERY time, even when you literally echoed the tone and excitement or sleepy voice when she greeted you. I still hear your voice saying “is that Meridian Maier” and to see her run and leap in your arms like Christmas morning, I’ll miss every moment of that! There are a million and one stories that are ours and we are SO blessed to have them! But what I wouldn’t give for even one more.
I know you are flying high with the angels and you are in a better place but this place feels so quiet and lonely without you. Meridian told me yesterday that now she can talk to you anytime and you can see her every day, you know what, she’s right! We will hold every memory so tight and miss you so much already
Can’t wait till we meet again on the streets of gold!
Yesterday was bittersweet, Meridian was baptized on the day you met Jesus. In every way we cry tears of joy and tears of sadness, we rejoice and we morn, we are SO thankful that God has a plan for each one of us. Although we do not understand and my never understand we are SO thankful that He shared you with us!! WE love you Katie Jo
