In a heart­felt Face­book post the par­ents of two-year-old Freya Chynn shared the news of her death on Tues­day.

The daugh­ter of Justin and Ash­ley Chynn of Deer Lake died on Mon­day of Krabbe A dis­ease.

Her twin sis­ter, Au­tumn, died of the same rare de­gen­er­a­tive dis­or­der in Jan­uary 2017, two weeks shy of her first birth­day.

The twins were di­ag­nosed with Krabbe A when they were about six months old.

The post about her death on the fam­ily’s Face­book page “Au­tumn & Freya’s Jour­ney” said: “Af­ter all the bat­tles Freya has won it was un­for­tu­nately her time to go. We take com­fort in know­ing that she’s free from her beau­ti­ful but bro­ken body this life has given her.”

The post de­scribes the lit­tle girl as hav­ing been “so full of sass and at­ti­tude, so full of love.”

Freya’s fu­neral will take place at the Ro­man Catholic Hall in Deer Lake on Thurs­day.
