Tragedy for Granger Smith and Family

Granger Smith has shared heartbreaking news that his youngest son has died.

In an Instagram post he wrote:

"I have to deliver unthinkable news. We’ve lost our youngest son, River Kelly Smith. Following a tragic accident, and despite doctor’s best efforts, he was unable to be revived. 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. Our family is devastated and heartbroken, but we take solace in knowing he is with his Heavenly Father. Riv was special. 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. Love the ones close to you. There has never been a more difficult moment for us than this."

The Smith's also have daughter, London, born October 3, 2011, and son; Lincoln Monarch Smith, born in Jan 7, 2014 . River was the youngest at 3-year-old.

Please remember Granger, his wife Amber and their 2 children London & Lincoln in your prayers today.

In lieu of flowers or gifts, please send donations to Dell Children’s Medical Center in River’s name.
