GEORGETOWN, Texas — Country singer Granger Smith’s son has helped save two lives since his passing thanks to organ donation, mother Amber Smith said on Instagram on Saturday.
Smith's 3-year-old son, River Kelly Smith, died in a drowning incident and his family worked on a way to help the community following the tragic accident.
Amber said helping others was behind the family’s decision to donate River’s organs.
“When 3 different neuro specialists told us that River had 0% chance of brain recovery (yes 0, not 10 or 1%, 0) after shock and reality set in, I thought, how can we bury our sweet baby and not try to help others?” she wrote.
In the post, she said the couple’s “red-headed hero gave life to two adults” – a 49-year-old woman and a 53-year-old man.
“I’m so proud to be River’s mama and I’m so grateful to God that he gave him to us for those incredible three years,” she said.
“I pray these two recipients live healthy, joy-filled, full-throttle lives just like Riv. It was one of the hardest, yet easiest, decisions we’ve ever made.”
