Granger Smith and his wife, Amber, have been the face of courage following the accidental death of their youngest son, three-year-old River, at their Texas home this summer. The family has raised money for the hospital that cared for their baby boy, Granger has returned to touring with the family joining him for some shows, their children, Lincoln and London, have returned to school, and the family recently moved into a new home. And on Granger’s 40th birthday, Amber celebrated her husband.

In a post on her Instagram page, the sweet wife and mother shared a photo of them visiting York, England.

In the caption, she writes, “40 years ago today, this man was brought from Heaven to this Earth. A little over 10 years ago, God brought him to me, and exactly 10 years ago, he proposed in York, England. Today, in that same spot, we celebrate him, our love and our life we’ve built together. We’ve had so much love, so much laughter, so much adventure and so many tears, both joyful and devastating. He’s the best husband and father I could have ever hoped for, he makes me better, and I’m so grateful we get to do this life together. In sickness, in health, for better for worse. Happy birthday, my love. We love you past the stars.”

The Smiths continue to keep fans updated on their journey through social media, including their  YouTube channel — The Smiths — that takes viewers on the road and into their home.
