Craig Morgan took to Instagram to thank his fans and the Tennessee community for their outpouring of support on Wednesday, after his 19-year-old son, Jerry Greer, was found dead due to a boating accident at Kentucky Lake last Monday.
"The loss of our son Jerry is the hardest thing we have ever had to endure as a family," the 52-year-old country singer writes. "[My wife] Karen and I are so grateful for all of the wonderful people who have shown us unwavering support during this difficult time."
" ... We cannot thank the music and outdoor communities enough for wrapping their arms around us, as well as our industry friends, fans, and all those that loved our son," he continues. "We are blessed by the outpouring of prayers and condolences from across the world."
The family is using their faith to cope with the tragedy.
"Jerry may be gone from this earth, and we will miss him every day, but his spirit will live on in our hearts," Morgan writes. "We will find peace knowing that God has a bigger plan, and that one day, we'll be reunited with him again in Heaven."
A private service was held for Greer last Saturday at the Covenant Presbyterian Church in Nashville. Family and friends of Greer have also established a memorial scholarship fund in his name "to honor Jerry's energy, athleticism, and love of life," which will benefit future athletes of Dickson County High School -- particularly, those with dyslexia.
"He was a superstar without even trying. He was a natural athlete that accomplished what most spend a lifetime attempting to achieve," Greer's obituary reads. "He was a devoted and dedicated son, brother and friend. He loved his God, his family, his friends and his country more than anything. His passions were football, soccer and the outdoors. He will be greatly missed by everyone who came in contact with him. He will be forever in our thoughts, in our words, and in our hearts."
