Craig Strickland's Widow Posts Emotional Footage of Her Late Husband (VIDEO)

It's only been a few days since country singer Craig Strickland was found dead, and his wife Helen has been using social media to share updates with fans and remember her precious hubby. She posted one video in particular that made us feel weepy, of him telling her he loved her on their wedding day.

She wrote in the caption, "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."

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. Thank you @stylistmeganfarmer for helping him make this. I will cherish it for ever. "Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. Psalms 116:15" Thank you Lord for sharing #craigstrickland with me. You allowed me to borrow him on this earth, but he was always Yours. I will forever cherish our year of marriage. This was truly the type of man you were and will always be remembered as. I love you Craig Michael.

In the clip, Craig tells his bride, "There'll be times where we're sitting in our car and stuff where you don't know this ... But I'll look over at you and be like, 'This is the person that God has created for me' and that's really special to me and I couldn't be more lucky."

Craig went missing with his buddy Chase Morland in the days after Christmas, when the two headed off in winter storm Goliath for a duck-hunting trip. Their boat was found capsized, and both men were eventually found dead.

Helen posted some details about his death earlier this week, saying that he "felt no pain" at the end. She also attended Morland's memorial service on Tuesday night, along with their dog Sam.

Strickland's body was found camouflaged by debris, about a quarter mile from where Morland was discovered days earlier in shallow water. The cause of death is still unknown, but weather is considered to be a factor.
