It’s been four months since Craig Morgan tragically lost his son, Jerry Greer, in a boating accident on Kentucky Lake in Tennessee.
The singer and his family have been mourning the loss of Jerry and asked for privacy during this difficult time. On Friday (Nov. 3) Craig emerged with a Facebook Live post thanking all the people who have been so supportive of him and his family.
“It’s been a while since I’ve talked to anybody,” Craig begins the video. “As everyone knows we had a tragic loss, here recently, of our son. And I wanted to personally get on here and tell all of you thank you so much for your kind words and your support. It’s been amazing. The fans—we’ve gotten letters and emails and Facebook posts and all kinds of stuff, so we want to say thank you. This is from my family.
“My son, Jerry, was a most amazing young man,” Craig adds. “His spirit and his attitude and his love continues on through all of us. And I don’t just mean me and my family— I mean my crew, my friends, his friends and it’s an amazing story. We continue to cherish that in the time we had with him. And I want to share that with you all.”
