Our hearts are heavy today as we hear of the passing of Granger Smith‘s 3-year-old son.

In a statement made earlier today on his social media pages Granger broke the heartbreaking news to his fans and the public,

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.
Thank you, Granger Smith

In a statement to People magaizne, a rep for the country star confirmed River’s cause of death as a “tragic drowning accident at home.”

In lieu of sympathies, the family asks that donations be made in the name of River Kelly Smith to Dell Children’s Medical Center in River’s name. The doctors, nurses and staff have been incredible.

Our thoughts and many prayers are with the Smith family.
