Still healing. Granger Smith’s wife, Amber Smith, talked about how much she is struggling ever since their late 3-year-old son, River, passed away unexpectedly on June 6.

“Missing my baby so much. People keep saying, ‘You’re so strong.’ ‘How are you functioning?’ ‘I wouldn’t be able to get out of bed,’” the 37-year-old captioned several photos of her with River. “I am broken. My heart will never be the same. I will never be the same. Yes, I have strong moments, but I also (as any grieving mother would do) cry, scream, question and fall to my knees. Then, I get back up and fight.”

After the couple’s youngest son died in an accidental drowning at the family’s home in Georgetown, Texas, their life hasn’t been the same. The blonde beauty felt the need to talk about what she has been going through with her fans. “I just want to share my journey with all of you because it will be a long road, and if we can help at least one person going through something like this, then it is worth it to me to be open about my feelings, my faith and my struggles,” she said.

Missing my baby so much ❤️. People keep saying, “you’re so strong” “how are you functioning?” “I wouldn’t be able to get out of bed.” I am broken. My heart will never be the same. I will never be the same. Yes, I have strong moments, but I also (as any grieving mother would do) cry, scream, question, and fall to my knees. Then I get back up and fight. I just want to share my journey with all of you because it will be a long road, and if we can help at least one person going through something like this, then it is worth it to me to be open about my feelings, my faith, my struggles. To any of you experiencing a loss of any kind (and maybe I’m just trying to remind myself here) – You can do this. You can grieve and still be strong for your family, husband and or other kiddos. Lean in to Him in your weakness and learn to not beat yourself up (like I do) when you are having a moment of calm. Shut out the negative and focus on the light and the love. 💫 Be kind to those around you. Before you choose to judge or tear down, always try to encourage or lift people up. That person next to you, that car in front of you, that woman down the street, that man in your office, those kiddos in the store, you never know what kind of trials they are facing. Thank you all again for sharing your stories of loss with me, for lifting my family up through prayers and encouragement. YOU are the reasons for my strength at times and I’m so grateful. ♥️

Amber ended the lengthy post on a high note where she explained that it is worth it to be nice to others, and she thanked her friends, family and fans for their support during this tough time. “Be kind to those around you.

The “Backroad Song” crooner, 39, revealed what happened to his son in a heartbreaking post on Twitter in the beginning of June. “I have to deliver unthinkable news,” he wrote at the time. “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.”

We are thinking of the Smith family during this tough time.
