June 21, 1990 - April 5, 2021
Kaci Jo Sparkman age 30, If you're reading this, then you are aware that I have passed away. I had been told it would happen one day but it's not something I wanted to hear. I never liked it when I didn't get my say… I was born June 21, 1990 and presented to my parents Lisa and Greg Sparkman and older brother Garrett. He was the first child which made me the second child. Forever number 2… I remember my dad loved me the most. This was common knowledge. He loved me so much because I barrel raced, rode horses and bulls even when he told not to do so and he loved this about me. I won many rodeo buckles that I wore with pride because I was good at the things I was told not to do. I was always full of sass, part of my charm. While I'm discussing livestock, it's probably a good time to mend fences. My mom and Garrett, the number one son, worked tirelessly to endure my ability to boss and command my world. It is apparent to me now in hindsight that my boss lady approach to my world really just amounted to full-on tantrums. They deserve my most sincere apologies and gratitude. They are truly saints. I gave back to our world an amazing handsome wise son Colter and a beautiful sassy daughter Rees. My sass is now apparently her legacy. They are both at the age where they will need our families love and guidance. It takes a village. I have such an amazing family and so many friends that loved me. How much more blessed could I have been? I was born, I blinked, and it was over. It has been said that the content of a life is the dash between your birth date and your death. I had only a short dash but filled it to the brim while I was here. Life is short. Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, never forget anyone that made you smile. Remember everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about so always be kind. When the mood hits you, you can look for me in a sunset over the ocean, a freshly plowed field or wherever you feel love. Naturally, that will comfort some while antagonizing others, but if you knew me, that was one of the things that I did best. Please don't cry because I'm gone, instead be happy I was here (ok a little crying won't hurt since you are reading my obituary after all). Today I am at home with our Lord, happy, whole and dancing with those that went before me. Love you forever, Kaci Jo Survivors include loving mother Lisa Sparkman of Gordonville, MO; beloved son Colter Eck and daughter Rees Flannery both of Gordonville, MO; brother Garrett Sparkman of Cape Girardeau, MO.
