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.

Together, Granger and Amber have two additional children. They have a 7-year-old daughter, London, and a 5-year-old son, Lincoln. It is now their wishes that instead of flowers or gifts, that people pay their respects with a donation to Dell Children’s Medical Center in River’s name.

It has also been at their request to have River’s organs donated “so that other children will be given a second chance at life.”
