Jill Duggar has posted several photos from her grandma’s funeral, showing every member of the family — including Josh — was there to say goodbye to the 78-year-old who died from an accidental drowning.
In a series of snaps, Duggar gives fans an insight to their grandma Mary Duggar‘s emotional service which included all of the children getting onstage to lead the audience in song, as well as many of the boys carrying her casket to the burial site.
“Yesterday was a very hard, yet beautiful day,” Jill started her post on Tuesday. “The service was lovely and very honoring to my Grandma and the one she loved more than anyone or anything else, Jesus Christ!”
Mary’s order of service reads “A Celebration of the Life and Legacy of Mary Lester Duggar” with the dates May 26, 1941- June 9, 2019.
The Duggar’s grandma looks beautiful, smiling sweetly with flowers framing the top of the photo.
“It started raining right before the graveside service and then there was a beautiful rainbow…’a sign of God’s faithfulness’, as Grandma would always say!” Jill wrote.
In another pic, one of the young Duggar’s sons can be seen enjoying the rain, while burial guests use umbrellas to keep dry.
Jill also shared images from the inside of the funeral which showed the Duggar brothers onstage presumably retelling stories of their beloved grandma.
While some fans are here for Jill’s recap from the services, others are slamming the reality star for sharing such a private moment on social media.
“Why would you put such an emotional and private moment online? are there no boundries in your family to what you share worldwide?” said one follower. “I’ll never understand why people post pictures of the gravesite and the casket. It should be a personal thing, not blasted on Facebook or etc,” wrote another.
Others are just calling it “disrespectful.”
The Duggar family revealed Mary’s death on their official Facebook page over the weekend, saying, “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.”
The statement continued, “She is survived by her daughter Deanna and her son Jim Bob, 21 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren, with several more great-grandchildren on the way!”
Mary Duggar appeared with the family on the TLC shows “19 Kids & Counting” and “Counting On.”
