When to accept that it’s over

I know it is hard to let go of a child, it would be very hard. But the girl has officially been declared brain dead. The family needs to accept it and let her go. She has been deceased for 3 weeks. Why prolong the pain & rack up bills they can’t afford? She is gone, she has been gone. Let her rest in peace.

However, if the brain is dead, how can the rest of her body still be functioning? I thought the brain communicated with the rest of the body & told it what to do ??? Could she still be alive, just in a coma or some weird unknown state? I can see why this would be a tough call for the family. However she did go into cardiac arrest after surgery & never recovered. As much as I hate to say it, I think she is gone.
