Elsie Mahe, the 3-year-old daughter of BYU running backs coach Reno Mahe, has died, according to a Facebook post by her mother.

Elsie was found tangled up in cords from a window blind in her home on November 22.

"Our Elsie girl has officially been released to heaven - at least from a worldly, paperwork stand point. Her second neurological death exam was also positive for brain death.  We feel peace and we are again so grateful for the privilege of being Elsie's parents. She continues to sprinkle love and hope across the world and I am in awe of the Lord and His marvelous plan for my sweet girl. We will be working closely with the donation team for the next couple of days, so we have a few days to postpone making funeral plans. But as those dates and decisions are made, we will keep you informed," wrote Sunny Mahe, Elsie's mother, in a Facebook post.

In another Facebook post written Sunday, Sunny Mahe said the family had met with medical staff to discuss organ donation.
