Adrienne Vaughan Obituary, Death – Adrienne Vaughan, to quote: Never in a million years did I imagine that I’d be the one writing you a letter like this. It is beyond comprehension that you are not here with us, as this is a great misfortune. We’ve been through a lot of things together and helped each other through a lot of things along the way. At every turn, you demonstrated compassion for other people, spoke of the love you have for your children and other members of your family, and expressed how much you were missing your father.
You never failed to share with me stories about Leanna and Mason, and you never failed to express how proud you were of the two of them. These are the first things that I learned about you that I knew. You were the first one to greet me and offer your assistance. You were also the first person to step in and try to make things better every time. You were never in the least bit intimidated by the task, and you were always pleased with the results of the work you turned in. Even before this moment, I have always remembered how you described going to the jacket meeting as your “happy place.”
It was a beautiful reminder of why we do these jobs, and it was a reminder that you kept going even when it was difficult and even when it hurt. When I congratulated you on your promotion to President at Bloomsbury, you commented, “it still feels like a dream,” and you were so thrilled. I was glad to hear that. While we were getting ready for our business reviews, we socialized by drinking wine together, going to excellent restaurants, and eating all of the M&Ms. I could not have imagined wanting anything or anyone else.
I will never get over the fact that you are my friend for eternity. What a tragic event with no explanation. My heart hurts not only for her loved ones and friends, but also for everyone in the publishing community. Hello, Mary Ann! I am truly sorry for the loss you have suffered. What a horrifying occurrence. It seems as though she is a wonderful person. I pray that the remembrance of her will be a benefit. Mary Ann, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Your tribute is lovely, and what has happened is beyond horrible and heartbreaking to put into words. You, her beloved friends, and the rest of her cherished family are in my prayers that her memory will always be a source of blessing.
