"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," Jessa wrote, alongside a link to the family's GoFundMe page. "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, Dylan and Dianna were driving to the family's home when they collided with a large crop sprayer. While Dylan and Vincent came away from the accident without injury, Dianna sustained major head trauma and a fractured skull. On May 31, a few days after the accident, Dianna passed away. "We are hoping to raise funds for Dylan and his family as he will be unable to work for an extended amount of time," the family explained. "We feel that $68,000 is a good start to help ease some of the financial pressure that he will be facing. Please keep the Fleshman family in your prayers as there are difficult decisions and hard times ahead. Thank you for your prayers and support. We are are hoping to raise this money over the next few weeks."
As of today, followers have raised nearly $25,000 for the family. Dianna welcomed her baby boy this past March, and dreamed of having 16 children, per her obituary. She was the fifth of 12 children herself and loved gardening, cooking, children and being with her family. Dianna's funeral is scheduled for June 5. Our thoughts are with Dianna's family and friends during this difficult time.
