Jeff posted the following on his Facebook: "Ella's story has only begun. My family had a front row seat for all 10 years as we watched this amazing baby impact everyone who knew her. We've always known she's a hero, but now the world gets to know. 10 years cannot contain all that she was...she is. As countless parents lay on their faces begging God for a miracle for their babies, Ella is going to be that miracle for so many. My incredible baby girl is going to save many lives and restore other families as an organ donor. Though we must let go and say our goodbyes, we are blessed in knowing that it is not over. Her story....is just beginning."
