A Parent’s Silent Cry: Craig Morgan makes us realize the pain of son’s death, Jerry


The worst thing that can ever happen to a parent is to lose a child. It’s definitely unimaginable and just horrific.

“The loss of our son Jerry is the hardest thing we have ever had to endure as a family. Karen and I are so grateful for all of the wonderful people who have shown us unwavering support during this difficult time,” the country singer wrote in a Facebook post.

On July 10, Craig Morgan did his best to celebrate the life of his late son, Jerry. He died in a boating accident last year.

Jerry Greer went tubing on July 10, 2016 but he went underwater. It took nearly 24 hours before his body was recovered on Kentucky Lake in Humphreys County, Tennessee on  July 11. The autopsy  of The Humphreys County Medical Examiner later confirmed that the cause of death was drowning. Also, The Tennessean reports. He tested positive for marijuana and a low level of alcohol, the paper claims, citing a toxicology report. The 19-year-old was found wearing a life jacket so the officials could not explain why it did not bring him afloat from the start.

Jerry was one of Morgan’s four kids with his wife, Karen. After graduating form Dickson Country High School and wanted to be a football player in college.

Craig Morgan Greer (Craig Morgan’s real name) used Instagram and shared a photo from his son’s high school graduation. In the picture, the family surrounds him as they all smile with pure pride and happiness on his achievement.

“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,” Morgan writes in the caption.


Morgan also shared that he spent the day on the lake, since Jerry lost his life on a lake. Also, he shared two more photos of Jerry on Facebook. Both did not have captions. Jerry’s brother also shared a photo on Instagram. It is their picture as young boys.

“I’ll never forget your big goofy smile and loud obnoxious laugh, I miss you so much but I know you’re okay,” Wyatt Greer writes. “Thank you for always watching over me, love you big bro.”
