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. . . In lieu of flowers or gifts, please send donations to Dell Children’s Medical Center in River’s name. The doctors, nurses and staff have been incredible.
Nearly after two weeks of their son’s death, the grieving parents sat down for an emotional youtube video to give fans an account of “how we’re doing and where we plan to go from here.”
“We are going to search for every bit of good we can find in this situation, the worst situation we have ever been through,” Smith said while sitting next to Amber at their Texas home. “That’s my commitment to River’s legacy.”
The “if the boot fits” country singer Granger Smith said he was able to love his son just for three years and his son was assigned to the earth for only three years and said that he is happy to know that his son lived that three years for the fullest.
Smith said that this accident changed the whole situation of their family. After this accident, Smith, and Amber said, they relied on the families who have faced the same situation and lost their loving babies and hope to help that family to find a ray of light in the darkness. He said we have talked to some celebrities parents who have gone through the same situation and that seems very helpful, having an understanding with each other.
The parents Smith and Amber thanks the country community and their fans all over the world for pouring love and support over their family and thanked the fans who had raised over $100,000 in honour of river through the tribute t-shirt. Amber thanked all the fans for buying that t-shirt and for sharing them. Smith said music has always been my healing, so he is going to return to his touring with his family by his side
