Craig Strickland’s Widow Writes Heartbreaking Note to Singer on Their Wedding Anniversary
Craig Strickland’s widow is still recovering from her husband’s tragic death.
Helen Strickland took to Instagram on Tuesday to mourn the country star, who died on a hunting trip last December, posting a sweet note in honor of what would have been their two-year wedding anniversary.
“Happy Anniversary Craig Michael. I will miss you every step of the way in this life,” Helen wrote alongside a video of the pair’s moments together, “but I am thankful that I can always look back on the precious memory of our marriage with love in my heart.”
“I can be thankful because you are with our Father…meaning I can find peace knowing that since we are both His, you both are mine,” she concluded. “#loveyoualways.”
Strickland’s body was recovered on Jan. 4, about a week after he and pal Chase Moreland embarked on their hunting trip in Oklahoma. The men were reported missing on Dec. 27, and Moreland’s body was recovered on Dec. 28.
Helen has shared a series of emotional social media posts since her husband went missing, at first holding out hope that Strickland would be found. At his funeral in January, she shared heartbreaking memories of their first date.
