Casandra Ashley Vaughan Perkins, 26, of Charleston, SC, wife of Miles T. Perkins entered into eternal rest Friday, February 7, 2014. Her funeral service will be Thursday, February 13, 2014 in Grace United Methodist Church at 2:00pm. The family will receive friends Wednesday in J. HENRY STUHR INC., WEST ASHLEY CHAPEL, 3360 Glenn McConnell Parkway from 5: 00 pm to 7:00 pm.

Casandra was born February 6, 1988 in Odgen, Utah, she was the daughter of Michael Dane Vaughan and Linda Zisumbo Vaughan. February 6, 1988 was a warm and snowy northern Utah night. A ray of pure sunshine broke through. A little girl was born to two adoring parents. She was their first daughter; as a matter of fact she was the first granddaughter of four other happy people waiting to feel the warmth of her beam on their face. Her name had been chosen, Casandra in honor of her two grandmothers, Sandra and Catalina. The two happy parents Mike and Linda melded these names together to form a new beautiful one. One day when she was 4 or 5 months old, before any vocalization of mama or dada, she was sitting on my chest while I lay on the couch. I was staring into her big blue eyes and she into mine.I decided to raise my eyebrows high, twice. She looked at me for a second and raised her eyebrows twice! I laughed, then she laughed. I did it again, this time 3 times. She looked at me a little longer this time and then ...you guessed it, she raised her eyebrows 3 times too. In wondrous amazement I knew I had a special little girl. Her big brother Devin adored, protected and taught her how to crawl backwards down the spiral staircase so she would not tumble. He also taught her to throw anything but laundry down the laundry chute and then crawl down the stairs and it would magically be there. A year and a half later another little girl was brought home, Tara. Now, the student became the teacher. She was the big sister, teacher and protector from then on and into adulthood.

Cassie had many interests, many. She of coursed loved art, animals and she really liked bugs. She easily could have been an entomologist. But one area most people did not know that Cassie was very learned in was genetics. She loved talking about it to her father and had a private aspirations that after her young family had been settled she would discover something wonderful, possibly something that could be a godsend to many but all this will not be the case in light of our tragedy.

Cassie, my cooboos, Daddy loves you. Now there is no more pain forever and ever. Your Daddy is now not afraid to pass to the other side, for I know you are waiting. Although it wont be today or tomorrow, it will be one day my lovely. Stay with grandma's arms and know that all of us grieve now, but it shall pass. We will never, never ever stop thinking of you, missing you and dreaming of you. Goodnight cooboos, I'll leave the door cracked and the light on.

She is survived by her husband, Miles T. Perkins and her son, Bronson Gerard Dane Perkins both of Charleston, SC; father, Michael Dane Vaughan of Charleston, SC; mother, Linda Vaughan of Ogden, UT; Paternal grandfather, Gerard "Jerry" Vaughan (Anne) of Charleston, SC; sister, Tara Linn Vaughan (Cody Reed) of Waynesboro, PA; brother, Devin Lee Vaughan (Angela) of Nashville, TN; niece, Mila Vaughan; two uncles, Gerard Vaughan, Jr.and Richard Bradley Vaughan (Kimberly), cousins, Joshua, Nichole, Heidi, Richard, Parker, Sandra and Mackenzie; sister-in-law, Amy Perkins and her child Nelson; long time family friend Renona Butler for 5 decades. She is preceded in death by her paternal grandmother Sandra Sivier Vaughan.
