We lost our youngest son, River Kelly Smith, after a tragic accident, and despite the best efforts of the doctor, he was not able to revive him.I and Amber took a decision to mention our last farewell and donate to its members In order to give other children a second chance in life, our family is destroyed and troubled, but we play with the knowledge that with his Heavenly Father, Reeve was distinctive, and everyone who met him knew it immediately. There are words to say more, I will not find her at this moment, I love those near you The moment is more difficult for us at all of this.
