‌Christopher Smith, Jr. : a sweet, intelligent, animal-loving six year old. CJ's 7th birthday is April 24th and for the past week CJ has been counting down to his epic celebration!!! He wanted to go to the zoo with his family and dinner.
CJ will not get to celebrate his 7th birthday with his family at the Zoo because he was hit by an SUV coming home from school on Monday, April 18, 2016. His injuries put him in critical condition in ICU. CJ's spine was severed from his brain. The driver of the vehicle failed to provide a valid driver's license and insurance.
CJ's mother, father, sisters, grandmothers, grandfathers,brothers, hosts of aunts,uncles and cousins will forever mourn for our CJ!!!! We will love him forever and ever. A sweet and precious life taken too soon. We will celebrate CJ's 7th birthday on April 24th according to CJ's birthday plans.

The mother, father and family of Christopher Smith, Jr. Is forever grateful for the outpour of prayers and support from the city of Memphis.  All donations will be used towards his memorial services.

Mommy & Daddy made the decision to donate CJ's organs. He has a rare blood type so he will be a miracle to those who need it the most .

CJ's injuries are not reversible. He is on life support. His is not in any pain. The mother and father have reached a piece of peace and is embracing the realease of CJ's spirit from his earthly body. CJ has such a huge family and his spirit will live through each one of us for the rest of our lives.

My prayers for your family!!! I too, lost my sister, age 16, two years ago this May from someone speeding, and losing control on their car, and hitting her on the side walk. Much like your precious boy. My sister was in a coma for 5 days, where we then lost her to her traumatic brain injury. My prayers for you for the road ahead. May God wrap his arms around you in the biggest way. May you be able to heal in the best way you know how. Much love.
