Craig Morgan Calls Son’s Loss ‘Hardest Thing’

Country singer Craig Morgan says the death of his son is “the hardest thing we have ever had to endure as a family.”

Nineteen-year-old Jerry Greer was found dead Monday evening in a northwestern Tennessee lake following a boating accident. Authorities say Greer and a friend had been tubing when the accident occurred. Greer’s friend resurfaced, but Greer did not. Both were wearing life jackets.

In a Facebook post Wednesday, Morgan says, “Jerry may be gone from this earth, and we will miss him every day, but his spirit will live on in our hearts.”
