This is the complete obituary. You need to have a paid subscription to read it on the newspaper's website. That's best though because you CAN read the comments without paying and the ones so far literally make me ill. I can't believe people are so cruel.

Michelle and Jim Bob now have an angel watching over them! I lost my Grandparents, a step dad, a baby brother or sister when I was little and I know they are in Heaven waiting for me like Jubilee is waiting for Michelle and Jim Bob!

We are with you in your sorrow and understand the
love and honor you are giving your daughter Jubilee.
We lost two daughters Gabrielle Maria and Valeria
Maria, both who were diagnosed with Trisomy 18.
Gabrielle went to term and lived for 9 days(June 2007) and Valeria was the same age as Jubilee and her heart stopped beating inside me(Jan.2009). I delivered her still born a day later. Michelle, I know the emotions are enormous and I will pray for your continued strength and healing. When I heard this news about you losing this precious daughter I thought possibly she had this same diagnosis as my daughters. If this is true then once you are in stronger place I think God will guide you to become an advocate for mothers who go through this unthinkable pain. I am always reaching out to other moms in my community and I now see what good I can do with my new perspective. I believe as you do, that one day we will be with our daughters again and until then they will be our spiritual guides here on earth. May Jubilee bless you with peace and reveal to you her spiritual presence during these upcoming days of remembering her and honoring her. Our family is with yours in spirit as we stand together honoring all of the precious angel babies in heaven.

With sincere concern and understanding-
Korine Schallack and Family

Every time I read about your loss of beautiful Jubilee my eyes water. I know the pain and the sadness of a mum losing babies I have suffered this twice in just over a year. My families prayers and thought are with you. Jesus will forever hold her and tend to her in heaven. May God continue to bless your family and give you strength in this time of heartache.

Though I've never had a miscarriage, my husband and I lost our little 3.75 year old boy this past June. We have 2 other children. We started this foundation in his honor & would love for you to take a look. We are grateful for the HOPE that we will see our sweet boy again!

A memorial is a wonderful idea for a life that was here only a short time.
I ,myself, lost a pregnancy 21 years ago. But we never had a memorial service. No one ever heard of such a thing then. So wished I would have had a memorial.
My prayers are with the family.

Please know that I have been praying for your family many times a day. "Jubilee" is such a precious name! I traveled down the difficult road you are on almost 20 years ago. Our Johanna Marie (our fourth pregnancy) passed away in her 18th week, and she was stillborn at 19 1/2 weeks, weighing 3 oz and measuring 7 inches. I am now expecting our 12th baby in April (I just turned 48)and was so exciting to be sharing this journey with your mother (even though she doesn't know me). Every time this precious baby inside me make her presence known, I have been praying for peace, grace and strength for your mother and all of you.
Know that God will carry you through this and will use it for His glory and your good for the rest of your lives and beyond!

From the day you told everyone on your TLC Show I said a prayer for you Michelle and Jubilee. I am so very sorry for your loss. God is a loving God and he must have great plans for her in heaven. She is your personal angel watching down on you; Jim Bob and all of your children. Your family is a wonderful example to all of us. I get great joy and warm feelings when I watch your life on TLC. God's Blessing to all of you.

I am so sorry for your loss. The hopes and dreams for Jubilee were real and regardless of the stage of pregnancy the loss is painful. My husband and I lost our 5th child at 28 weeks. There are still sad times. Perhaps you'll try again. We are greatful God gave us the strength to get through our grief and love enough to risk trying again. We had our six child three years ago and expect our seventh soon. I will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers.

This makes my heart heavy. I recently had a miscarriage and know how difficult it is. I would strongly recommend the book called "I'll Hold You In Heaven." That book really helped me find strength through God and family. God Bless your family. We will pray for you.

Amazing. Jubilee was Stillborn on my Birthday and Only a few hours before I had had my Miscarriage 3 Years Ago. How Heart Breaking. In a way they are so blessed to have gotten to see her, say goodbye, perhaps even taking hand or footprints. My Heart aches for them as I was there just 3 years ago. I know they will move on strong and ignore all the haters out there.

I am in awe of your tremendous faith in receiving each child as a gift from God. It is obvious that your faith has enabled you raise a remarkable, loving, family. This difficult journey through the loss of Jubilee for both parents and siblings will continue to be filled with God's grace. Peace and love to the Duggar family.

I feel so bad for them. Rest in peace, sweet baby Jubilee!

P.S. For anyone interested in reading the full obituary, I'm copy and pasting it here:

TONTITOWN — Jubilee Shalom Duggar entered into the presence of Jesus Dec. 2, 2011. She was stillborn at 11:46 p.m. on Dec. 11, 2011, weighing 4 oz. and was 6 cm. in length.

She is survived by her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar; grandma, Mary Duggar; siblings, Josh, Jana, John, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johannah, Jennifer, Jordyn and Josie; sister-in-love, Anna Duggar; niece, Mackynzie; nephew, Michael; and lots of cousins and extended family members.

She is joined in heaven by both of her maternal grandparents, Garrett and Ethel Ruark; and her paternal grandfather, J.L. Duggar.

The Duggar family is so grateful for the outpouring of love shown to them and they will be celebrating Jubilee’s life in a private memorial service with family and friends. Jubilee will be buried at Fairview Memorial Gardens in Fayetteville.

God bless you, Duggars! While God's will is an unfathonable mystery to us all, the strength of your faith will keep you strong. I cannot have children but I have received many hours of joy watching your delightful family. Thank you for providing a TV program that demonstrates true Christian values and the preciousness of life. May Gods grace comfort you in this time of sorrow.

Hi, I just recently saw your photos online. I think what you did was really beautiful. A child, no matter if they're a minute in utero or a day in the world, is still a child. I'm very sorry for your loss.

Cynthia said...

I was so saddened to hear of your painful loss, and so moved to learn about the beautiful memorial service and precious pictures of Jubilee. You are an amazing family, an inspiration to me. I've read both your books, and refer to them often. You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this time. By the way, I think of sweet Jubilee as your 21st child. You will see her, as well as the other child you lost, in heaven someday.
Blessings to you all!

Dear Duggar family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. I am a Mom to 2 children on this earth, one more in the womb, but many more in heaven. In the past five years, after two healthy births 6.5 and 5 years ago, I have had 10 miscarriages. At times it felt like I would never have and hold another child. This baby in our womb is a miracle. And 14 weeks into the pregnancy, I am rejoicing that we have gotten this far. We are so thankful for your family that accepts each new life with as much enthusiasm as the last. We are thankful for the witness you have to how great our God is. And I have not stopped praying for you since I heard your sad news. May God continue to bless you richly and pour out his love on you all. My children enjoy hearing about your family. We home school our two, and I marvel at your ability to school so many. Yet, we train up our children in such a way that we might one day be able to handle more in stride.
Lots of Love,
Rebecca Vickery

I want to tell you and your family how deeply sorry I am for your loss. I know how it feels to loose a child because I lost my first one a hour and twenty minuets after she was born. So I am deeply sorry and I wish the best for you and your family through this hard time. My blessing are with you.

I'm so sorry for your loss! Jubilee will be dancing at heavens gates. May God be with you and family in this difficult time. I had 2 miscariages one at 16 and one at 27. It was difficult even though I wasn't ready to be a mom, God was there for me and gave me 2 wonderful girls after many years of fertitity treatment with my youngest. Ever child is a gift from God and he called them home even when we are not ready for them to go. Enjoy ever moment with them because you never know when it's your last. God bless you and your wonderful family.

RIH lil angel. I just had my daughter friday. But I know you put your fertility in Gods hands. Maybe after the complications with lil Josie and now the sad death of Jubilee that is Gods way of saying no more...Just MHO

So sorry for the loss of Jubilee. I lost a child shortly after birth and have her photos up all over. I'm so thankful for my daughters life, however brief it was. This babyloss club is like no other as we are bonded by something horrific, but the camaraderie is like no other. There IS hope after this storm!

I am praying for the Duggar Family right now. I hate that they lost Jubilee, but am so thankful she has already went to Heaven and is in Our Savior's Arms.

Anonymous said...

I agree that maybe it is time to say no more. It is a sad experience to miscarry a baby as I experienced it myself at 19.5 weeks. Even at that late is was considered at late miscarriage at not a still-birth. A death certificate isn't issued before 20 weeks so it's still a miscarriage. I think it is amazing what you and your family have done and how wonderful the kids are but enjoy the children that you have and now your grandchildren. This experience is hard no matter how far along you are but with the last 2 pregnancies ending ubruptly you should look at your life and those of your children and celebrate those. God bless.

Hello Duggar Family!
I just watched your Season Premiere episode.. I cried through the whole episode with all of you. So sorry to hear about your blessed Jubilee. You all are so very strong and I admire your strength during that difficult time. Her memorial was absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing your lives with me! God bless you all...

God Bless you Duggar Family. I too have lost a precious child who lived 7 hours and treasured every second that God gave me with my precious baby boy Ray Josiah. It does not matter how many children you have, you love them all the same. You do not love your children any differently especially based on how old they are, 7 hours old or 27 years old, you just love them all the same. I felt Michelle Duggars pain because that was also my pain. I knew her words before she spoke them because they were also my words. There is a saying that I love so much- ”Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away”. Oh so how my precious Baby Boy Ray took my breath away and I cherished that time that God gave me with him and I too am so grateful that God chose me to be his mom. EVERY child no matter how big or small is a precious GIFT from GOD. God Bless you Duggar family.

Hello.my name is lina, im 14 and live in maryland. Sometimes when i see you all, tears overflow my eyes. Not tears of sorrow ,but rather tears of joy! I want you all to know you guys are the spitting image of true devoted christians, praising God in the midst of your storm...... This mourning i stayed uptill 2am to whatch the season finale of your show...... Never would i have imagined that happening to you all.... not to be taken in the negative sense, but i couldnt cry for you.yes beacuse im not one of her siblings or parents or family members and couldnt grasp your pain but beacuse God has a devine purpose for all of us and little jubilee and k/caleb had finnished their journey.i didnt cry beacuse praise is what will bring anybody through a situation you will feel down and gloomy at times and you shall shed tear.mr. Jim bob and ms.michelle you could have thrown yourself a good ole' pitty party in that ultrasound room . But you praised him. Thanked him . Spoked through a prayer to him.... The memorial service, sang and gave praise to his glouriouse name............. praise is the ultimate way of bringing you through it!........... Hoping this message was some inspirtation and encouragment.
