“Although it is challenging to wrap our heads around how this could have happened, we know all first responders and medical personnel did everything they could to help, and therefore we are certain that it was simply her time,” the update said. “The Lord was calling her home.”
On December 22nd, Mitchell became unresponsive during her breakfast at her Rhode Island home. Efforts to save the thirty-six-year-old and her fetus were unfortunately unsuccessful.
