Tributes to ‘kind and funny’ seven-year-old as fundraiser launched GoFundMe

A fundraising page has been launched for the “heartbroken” family of a seven-year-old girl from Dumfries who died a day after being sent home from hospital with a suspected migraine.

Theia McKie died on Wednesday just two days after she was taken to Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary after complaining of a headache and was kept in overnight.

On Tuesday the youngster was given medication for a migraine and allowed to return home but continued to suffer from the pain.

And her mum Tracey Currie confirmed that Theia died on Wednesday.

Posting on Facebook she said: “We simply have no words. Today our Kind, funny, smart beautiful princess was taken way too soon.

“We are lost beyond comprehension. Theia, sweetheart, seven years of you will never ever be enough for mummy and daddy.”

A GoFundMe page has been launched by a family friend to help support them as tributes pour in for the youngster.

Posting on the page Cheryl Kempsell said: “Beautiful Theia has been taken far too soon.

“Seven-years-old Beautiful, sassy princess, I would like to raise some money for the family at this difficult time. Shine bright beautiful.”

And on Saturday Tracey told how she would be “eternally grateful” for the support they have received since her daughter’s death.

She said: “We would like to say that we are incredibly moved by the outpouring of love that has been shown for Theia.

“We have been offered so much support and condolences on the loss of our little princess and we will be eternally grateful.

“We physically cannot answer all the messages comments, but every single one, shows us how loved and special our girl was.

“She was bright, funny, sassy, always smiling, she loved to sing and dance and draw and she just loved to love.

“She was the epitome of life itself, she literally lived and loved like there was no tomorrow.

“Our families can only find slight comfort in the fact that we knew she knew how loved and special she was, and that she had the best seven years we could have possibly given her.”
