Fans Join Duggar Family in Mourning the Loss of Grandma Mary
Fans of the Duggar Family showed their respect on social media after the surprise death of Grandma Mary Duggar.
The patriarch of the Duggar family and star of the television show "19 Kids & Counting", Jim Bob Duggar, has received support and sweet words of condolences from many of his fans right after announcing the sad news of his mom's death.
"We are so sad to share that Grandma Duggar (Mary) passed away Sunday afternoon, June 9th, 2019. Mary Lester Duggar grew up in Farmington, Arkansas and was married almost 50 years to J.L. (Jimmy Lee) Duggar who preceded her in death." They wrote on the Duggar family’s official Facebook account.
"Mary found great joy in sharing her love for Jesus and her own story of how at age 15 she asked Christ to forgive her for her sins. It was at that time that she committed the rest of her life to live for Him, to the commitment she kept with devotion. She loved to share with others how they could forgive their sins, live a fulfilling life as a Christian, and one day spend eternity in heaven." Continued the post.
