Country star Granger Smith is grieving after the loss of his 3-year-old son, who died after drowning in a pool.
The singer delivered the news on Instagram, as he shared an image of himself and his son. He initially did not reveal how his son passed, but a rep told People that the young boy died from drowning in a pool.
Despite his unimaginable situation, Granger clung onto a glimmer of hope given to him by our Heavenly Father, which he spoke of in his post.
Both the EMS and the Fire Unit from the Williamson County Police Department reportedly responded to a call made from the family’s Georgetown, Texas home, according to Radar Online.
In April, the Dallas native debuted his music video for his song, “Heaven Bound Balloons,” which saw his family and friends writing messages to those they’ve lost.
“We wrote ‘We miss you and we love you’
Told ’em things are great down here
We spelled it out and sent it up
And we watched it disappear
Sometimes I guess you gotta see it to believe it
‘Cause right then I knew those blue sky prayers were getting through
When we let go of those heaven bound balloons”
Please pray for Granger, his wife, their children and their family and friends. Ask for God’s comfort, peace and encouragement for all during this time.
As believers, we have hope in an eternity with Christ after death. We know that River is experiencing a peace and joy with Jesus like never before. Granger knows that just as much.
And their reunion will be glorious.
