On Tuesday, the 9th of July, she posted a photo of her giving all smiles alongside her son River, who turned 3 a few weeks before his death.

“There is no right or wrong way to grieve, but the way Granger and I see it, we can run away from God at this time or we can run to Him. He’s been with us every step of the way, from the first responders and neighbors the night of the accident, to the doctors and nurse’s hands, to the friends and family by our side, to everything that fell into place so seamlessly for River’s service. He’s been there. So why would we turn on Him now?”

The country singer and his wife came out with the tragic news about the passing of their youngest son River on the 6th of June. They have confirmed that the cause of death is a “tragic drowning accident” that happened at home.

Smith and his wife, Amber, would later come out and share a few more details of the event in a YouTube video, admitting that everything happened in a blink of an eye and it changed their lives forever.

Since the accident, the country star implored his fans to donate to the Dell Children’s Medical Center in River’s name, saying that the doctors and the staff who attended to the child have all been incredible. Smith’s team have also created a shirt in memory of River.
