Duggar, News, Reality TV, TLC Shows

Counting On star Ben Seewald is currently going through a tough time. On Saturday, he revealed that his grandfather has passed away. Jessa Duggar’s husband wrote, “Thankful to have had time together over Thanksgiving. Special moments. We love you, Grandpa. You are missed, but I believe we will meet again before long, with both of us in perfect health, and sing together the praise of our Savior who died to cleanse us of our sins reconcile us to God.”

He continues, “Thankful for victory over death through the death and resurrection of Christ. Even in death there is hope for those who believe on Jesus. Because He rose, we can have confidence that it is not the end, but a new beginning. ‘For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: ‘Death is swallowed up in victory.’
‘O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?’
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.’
– 1 Corinthians 15:53-57”

Along with this well-written caption, Counting On’s Ben Seewald shared a sweet picture of his baby girl, Ivy, with his grandfather. The picture was taken on Thanksgiving, which is the last time that Ben and Jessa’s family got to visit with him.

Whenever members of the Duggar family need love and encouragement, Counting On fans are happy to help. In the comment sections of the two posts, fans are leaving heartfelt messages for Jessa and Ben to read. Anna Duggar, Jessa’s sister-in-law wrote, “So grateful you guys got to spend those precious moments with him. So sorry for your loss! Prayers going up for your sweet momma and family during this difficult time. 🙏🏼”

Here’s what some of their fans are saying:

  • “What beautiful eyes he had! He sounded like an awesome man! So sorry for your loss.”
  • “Those are the pictures that we will treasure for ever”.
  • “It’s never easy. Sorry for the loss of your beloved Grandpa Eaton. Thanking you Lord for your faithfulness. Sending love to the family.”

Ben and Jessa, as well as the rest of the Counting On family, seem to appreciate all of the support they get from their fans. The couple has yet to comment on the support they are getting this time around. This is likely due to the fact that they are currently grieving.

Though this is a hard time for the Seewald family, they are surrounded by the Duggar family and their Counting On fans.
