Jessa Seewald, from the Duggar family, paid tribute to Dianna Fleshman, a family friend who recently passed away after a terrible car crash.


At the time, May 25, 2018, Dianna was in the car with her husband, Dylan, and her two-month-old son, Vincent. While they all survived the accident, Dianna sustained severe injuries that led to her death six days later.

Seewald took to her Twitter account to let her fans and followers known that they can help make a difference in Dylan and Vicent's lives by making a donation to the family's GoFundMe page.

Being a single parent is not easy, and knowing that, Seewald urged everyone to keep the grieving father and son in their prayers as they learn to deal with the pain of not having Dianna around anymore.

"Our hearts ache over the loss of this dear friend, but we know that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Please continue to pray for Dianna's family, and especially for her husband and 2-month-old son, during this time."

According to the fundraising website, Dianna and Dylan, from Guthrie, Oklahoma, were on their way to the family's home in Hayfield, Minnesota, when they collided with a crop sprayer.

The accident took place half a mile from the destination; Dylan and Vicent escaped unharmed but Dianna suffered a massive head trauma and a fractured skull.

A devout Christian, Dianna passed away on Thursday, May 31st, and is now 'face-to-face with Jesus Christ in glory,' as it can be read in the late mother's obituary.

Dianna was born on June 24, 1995, and was the fifth of twelve children. Although she only had one son, she dreamed of having more and loved cooking, gardening and being with the ones she loved most.


She met Dylan and quickly fell in love; together, they made plans to start a big family and got married on April 8, 2017. Almost a year later, on March 14, they welcomed baby Vincent into the world.

Dianna's funeral service will be held on June 6 at Grace Evangelical Free Church, in Stewartville, Minnesota. To learn more about Dianna Fleshman, follow us on our Twitter account @amomama_usa.
