The Granger family are mourning the tragic death of their son River today. Country super star Granger Smith and his wife Amber are dealing with this horrific news. Here is his quote to the public released earlier this afternoon. “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 the moment. Love the ones close to you” Smith wrote on his Instagram. “In lieu of flowers and gifts , please send donations to Dell Children’s Medical Centre in River’s name.The doctors. Nurses and staff have been incredible.”
For those who follow Country music, Granger Smith is a huge up and coming star having sold millions of records and with over a quarter of a billion views on Youtube. His smash hit HAPPENS LIKE THAT featured young River falling into his arms from the sky.
Anyone who has lost a love one, especially a young child, knows what the family is going through. The rest of us can only imagine.
On behalf of DailyTalkRadioNews , we send to the Smith family our most sincere condolences.
