A little girl from Montezuma has passed away following an off-road utility vehicle accident.
The vehicle rolled over on top of six-year-old Kara Meyer Sunday. She has been hospitalized in Iowa City, but Kara’s mother says she died Wednesday morning.
She made this post on Kara’s CaringBridge site, “Kara left to be with Jesus around 5:00 this morning. She went on her own. She was ready. Kara didn’t want her parents to have to make the difficult decision to let her go. Kara will live on in others. She is going to give her life-saving organs to other children so they can live on. She would have wanted it that way. We all just love her so so much. It’s so hard to think about living without her. We pledge to live better – the Kara way. God, Bless us.”
Kara’s friends started an online fundraising campaign to help her family with medical expenses. You can find out how to help here.
