Life is a precious gift and sometimes it seems MUCH too short. We were heartbroken when Rebecca Waller (my brother-in-law, David Waller’s youngest sister) passed away suddenly in a tragic car accident this week. The memories our family made with Becca over the years will be cherished forever! She lived her 22 years of life (though so short) to the fullest. Rebecca loved God and served others diligently, she was energetic, gave the best hugs, and was a blessing to everyone who knew her! The reality of the brevity of life is a reminder to hold those we cherish close. Tomorrow is not guaranteed, so let’s love on those around us!! When there are offenses, be quick to forgive. When there are bad days and good days, be the greatest encourager. Never pass up a chance to say “I love you.” In these times of grief, we have real hope knowing those who have accepted the forgiveness that Jesus extends through his death on the cross and resurrection, life together is forever in heaven! I look forward to one day being reunited with our loved ones with Jesus in heaven, including precious Rebecca!
Anna, who is married to the oldest Duggar son, Josh, went on to share that kind-hearted Rebecca was "always giving and serving," and that she had been a great source of encouragement and the perfect example "to each of us!"
As if to prove the great extent of her grief, Anna went a mile further by sharing an equally emotional tribute for Rebecca via Twitter.

Anna and Jill's tributes on Instagram are responses to David Waller and his wife, Priscilla's joint post. David, who is Rebecca's oldest brother, had taken to the social platform to announce her death in a fatal car crash.
The bereaved couple explained that the youngster instantly died from the crash at around 8:30 am on October 2.
The message continued with the couple sharing that while spending 22 years with Rebecca seems so short, the most important thing is that she had a relationship with Jesus Christ.
The couple explained that they find comfort in their belief that Rebecca is now in "the presence of the Lord."
"She is in heaven today, not because she was a good person, but because she trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal savior," the couple fondly wrote.
May Rebecca's soul rest in peace.
