A family friend and distant relative by marriage of the Duggars has passed away. On Wednesday, October 2, Anna Duggar‘s sister, Priscilla Waller, revealed that her husband’s little sister Rebecca had died. Priscilla and David Waller shared a tribute to her on Instagram. In the comments, the Counting On stars shared love and tributes for her.

“With heavy hearts, we received a phone call today that David’s youngest sister, Rebecca, went home to heaven today, October 2, at around 8:30 a.m.,” the couple shared. “The 22 years of life that God gave us with her seem so short, but, in light of eternity, all of our lives are short. The most important thing is a relationship with Jesus Christ that Rebecca evidenced by the fruit of her life. 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 instant her car was struck, she passed from earth to heaven and is in the presence of the Lord.”

On the family’s website, they shared even more information in memory of their lost loved one. “Rebecca lived a very full life, packing every minute with meaningful activity,” David and Priscilla wrote. “Our children were blessed with Rebecca’s love and kindness through her many hours of babysitting, coming over for special days or events, or attending church with our family over the past few years. We are a very close family and her loss will be deeply felt by all. We also have experienced an outpouring of love and support by so many. Thank you! We treasure each text message, email, and kind word shared with us.”

Anna and Jill Duggar were just two of the family friends who reached out once they heard the news. “Praying for your family,” Anna, 31, wrote in the comments of the Instagram post. “We love you guys! Our kids have been talking about the fun memories they made with Rebecca. She is greatly loved and missed. She was always giving and serving. Such an encourager and example to each of us!” In her own comment, Jill wrote that she was “so, so sorry for [their] loss.”
