A country star remembers his late son in this heartbreaking, but inspiring post Instagram/@WyattGreer1

It’s the most heartbreaking loss imaginable, yet Craig Morgan and his family experienced it last year when Craig and Karen’s son, Jerry Greer, was involved in a tragic boating accident that took his life. And while no one would blame the family if they lost themselves in their grief on this anniversary of Jerry’s passing, the country singer-songwriter is, instead, celebrating his son.

In a post on his Instagram page, Craig writes that daughter reminded him that July 10 is also “someone’s birthday, someone’s anniversary, someone’s celebration for a new job, someone found out they were having a baby.” He adds, “but for me and my family, it’s the day we lost Jerry Michael.”

Craig continues, “It’s hard to put into words how sad I am, yet at the same time, I want to celebrate and praise my heavenly Father for His perfect plan for our lives. Jerry lost his life on the lake, so today, I’ll be on the water wishing he was with me, but knowing he’s with my Savior! To God be all the glory.”
