“‘Suffering produces in us endurance and character and hope. It steadies us in our faith and deepens its roots in order that we may be able to weather any storm. It makes us reach forward to greater things than we can see right now, but that we know for sure not only exist, but will be ours at the last.’ Excerpt from the book Bronner by @momgirl777 ,’” the “Backroad song” hitmaker’s wife wrote.

“This book is magic,” she added. “After dinner drive and walk to the lake. The smiles on these faces are some of the brightest lights in the dark.”
As previously reported, Amber recently announced that they had saved the lives of two other people after their son’s death through organ donation.
“I’ve always known I wanted to be a donor if anything were to ever happen to me. I just felt that if I had viable organs, why would I go into the ground with them? My spirit would be in Heaven, so why not save a life if I could? Never in a million years did I think I would be making that decision for my baby,” Smith’s wife shared in a post on Instagram, per Fox News.
“His body is perfect, his organs are perfect, we had to do something,” she added. “There are so many people waiting for an organ to save their lives. The doctors said donation was quite a process. We would have to search for viable recipients and it could take days.”
Smith continued, “Granger and I held each other and cried. We got the letter that our tiny, red-headed hero gave life to 2 adults. A 49-year old woman and a 53-year old man.”
Granger and Amber are also parents to a 7-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son.
