Craig Strickland’s Widow Marks Anniversary: ‘I Will Miss You Every Step of the Way’
Craig Strickland's widow marked what would have been their anniversary with a post to social media, expressing her thanks for the love they shared.
The Backroad Anthem singer went missing last Dec. 27 during a duck hunt, and was found dead on Jan. 4. His wife Helen was very open with fans while he was missing and after he was found, sharing the emotional ups and downs of what she was going through, and she turned to Instagram once again on Tuesday (Nov. 29) to share a message on the date of their anniversary.
"Happy Anniversary Craig Michael. I will miss you every step of the way in this life...but I am thankful that I can always look back on the precious memory of our marriage with love in my heart," she captions a video that includes photos from their wedding day. "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."
The touching video is set to the tune of "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)" by Hillsong United. Strickland has been public about how her faith has helped her through her hard times, and she affirmed that again, quoting from the song by writing, "Dear Heavenly Father, continue to let your Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the water, wherever You would call me...and take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, and my faith will be made stronger, in the presence of my Savior."
Craig Strickland was laid to rest on Jan. 12, and Helen says many people have reached out to share stories about Craig's story of faith impacted them.
"I’ve loved receiving stories from people all over the world," she wrote after his memorial service. "It has truly been amazing hearing from everyone, and it shows me how much God justifies every action that changes the course of our lives."
