“The light of our life Lilly Warren passed away peacefully at Utah Valley Hospital surrounded by her family after succumbing to her injuries from the tragic accident on Canyon Road in Springville, Utah. Her accident has impacted her younger brothers and so many of her family, friends, classmates, and every person that Lilly met and made immediate friends with. We are so grateful to all of the witnesses, first responders, bystanders, and Utah Valley Hospital staff who rendered lifesaving care to Lilly and helped her to survive one more day so that we could all be gathered around her and let her know how much she is loved before she passed. We had an amazing day with some reassuring hand squeezes that let us all know that Lilly could hear us. Our hearts go out to the driver and his family who are also grieving at this time. So many lives have been affected by this accident. Lilly will live on through organ donation and will bless the lives of other families who have waited for their own miracle. A GoFundMe* for financial donations has been established under Laugh Like Lilly for those wishing to ease the financial burden on her family.”
