Granger Smith’s 3-year-old son, River, has died. On Thursday (June 6), the singer shared that there was a tragic accident and that despite the doctor’s best efforts, he and his wife Amber said goodbye this week.
“Amber and I made the decision to say our last goodbyes and donate his organs so that other children will be given a second chance at life,”
Smith wrote, sharing along with a smiley photo of himself and River.
“Our family is devastated and heartbroken, but we take solace in knowing he is with his Heavenly Father,” added Smith, who is also father to son Lincoln Monarch, 5, and daughter London, 7.
“Riv was special,” he continued. “Everyone that met him knew that immediately. The joy he brought to our lives cannot be expressed and his light will be forever in our hearts.”
“If there are words to say more, I cannot find them in this moment,” Granger concluded. “Love the ones close to you. There has never been a more difficult moment for us than this.”
Amber Smith also shared the news, writing on Instagram that “nothing can prepare a mother to deliver this kind of news.”
The couple is asking that in lieu of flowers or gifts, donations be sent to Dell Children’s Medical Center in River’s name.
