With Christmas just around the corner, the Duggar family are in the midst of preparing for the holiday. But on Dec. 11, the family mourned and paid tribute to one member that had already departed them.

Last Monday, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar with the rest of the Duggar family paid tribute to Jubilee Shalom Duggar. Jubilee was supposed to be the 20th child of the Duggars. However, in 2011, Michelle suffered a stillbirth resulting to a miscarriage.

The Duggars posted a photo of Jubilee's grave on Facebook that has her name and the verse Psalms 127:3-5. The verse reads, "There is no hand too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world."

The family captioned the photo with, "It's hard to believe Jubilee would have been 6 years old today. Jubilee is our 20th child who was stillborn. We so look forward to seeing Jubilee in heaven."

Fans of the family and their television series also left heartfelt messages for Jubilee and for the faith of the family. Several fans reminisced the episode all about the death of Jubilee that aired back in February 2012. One fan commented, "I remember watching that episode and thinking it was the strongest Christian witness I have ever seen."

Other people who commented on the post are individuals who recently loss someone in their lives. One comment reads, "My sweet baby boy went to be with Jesus last week, he was only 7 weeks old. One of the hardest things I've ever had to deal with. I feel your pain."

However, as Christmas is fast approaching, the family is also busy as they prepare for the big celebration. They have also been posting pictures of the grandchildren altogether and even an old picture of the Duggar siblings when they were young.

There are still no news from TLC if the reality television show about the Duggars, "Counting On" has been renewed for season 7.
