The loss of a child seems unimaginable, yet country music fans are watching Granger Smith and his wife Amber create a new normal for their family after their youngest son, River, died in a tragic accident at home. And the Smith family, which includes daughter London and son Lincoln, are doing so with immeasurable grace and faith, as we see in the newest post from Amber.

Granger returned to the stage over the weekend for Chicago’s Lake Shake Festival and, as he said in the couple’s video from last week, the family is now on the road with him. While in the city, they took the opportunity to visit one of Chicago’s most fun and educational attractions, the Field Museum, where Sue the T Rex resides.

Amber shared a photo of London and Lincoln in front of the exhibit and wrote, “We just happened to be in the same city as the “biiiigggggggest T-Rex” ever found. We had to make a trip to see it in honor of River. This dinosaur was discovered in FAITH, South Dakota by a woman named Sue. And he died by a River ♥️. Open your eyes and you will see signs all around you.”

We just happened to be in the same city as the “biiiigggggggest T-Rex” ever found. We had to make a trip to see it in honor of River. This dinosaur was discovered in FAITH, South Dakota by a woman named Sue. And he died by a River ♥️. Open your eyes and you will see signs all around you. We think just maybe, Riv is having the best time of his life in Heaven with this 🦖. Getting back on the road and back into daily life without River has not been easy in the slightest. Every single thing reminds me of him, and all I can think about is how he would love exploring and seeing all that we are seeing. I see his name everywhere, I see little red-headed toddlers everywhere. I miss his silly personality and his bright light. I see his face in our other kiddos. I have this pit in my stomach constantly, because I’m trying to make life as normal as possible for our other 2 incredible kiddos, London and Lincoln, while hurting so bad inside. I look around at everyone else and wonder if anyone is going through something like we are. Dumb little things don’t matter anymore. My family does. My faith does. We’ve got this, because God’s got us ✝️. Thank you all for your continued support, prayers and love. It really does help us so much. #livelikeriv

As family tends to do, Amber’s post was followed by several comments from members of their country music family, including Hayley Hubbard, Caroline Bryan, and Mitchell Tenpenny, whom Granger brought on stage with him at Lake Shake.

Justin Moore also dedicated a performance of “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” to the Smith family during his Friday night show.

Like the rest of the country music community, our thoughts remain with the Smith family.
