The Backroad Anthem musician was found dead on Dec. 27 after his boat capsized on a duck-hunting trip in Oklahoma during winter storm Goliath. His wife, Helen Strickland, has been thanking fans and followers for their support on social media.

She also shared a touching video that her late husband had made for her, writing on Instagram, “On the day of our wedding Craig had me watch a video he had made to tell me how much he loved me. I am so thankful for technology in this moment because I will always have this. I watched this privately prior to walking down the aisle, and so now I want to share this small excerpt with all of you.”

The video, which just shows Craig speaking to his wife through the camera, is incredibly touching.
