Many of you read the post a few days ago about the loss of the Burgess Family in Alabama. Rick Burgess, a DJ for a nationally syndicated morning comedy program, spoke at his own son's funeral. For those that did not catch my earlier post, 2-year-old Bronner Burgess, drowned this weekend in their family pool.
Rick Burgess did something that I seriously doubt I could do myself. He spoke at his own son's funeral. Last night, I sat in my office and listened to the tribute by Casting Crowns and looked at the montage of pictures of Bronner on Rick and Bubba's website. It almost brought tears to my eyes. When I got up from my desk, I went straight to my boys and gave them a big kiss while they slept.
We do not need to take the time we have on Earth for granted. There are many things we need to take care of... To hear Rick Burgess speak at the funeral, check out the three clips below:

Have a great day,
