Unspeakably tragic

Two-year-old Bronner Burgess, son of Rick Burgess of "Rick and Bubba" fame, died last night from drowning in the family swimming pool. Investigators have ruled it a tragic accident.

The city of Birmingham is reeling. Yesterday was such a day of wonder for our city's small children, many of whom had never seen snow before. Now, there's a sad shadow on that happy memory.

God's grace be upon the Burgess family and everyone else who loved little Bronner.

That is really sad. I miss hearing them in the morning as I prepare for work. I hope this does not diminish Rick's passion for life, but somehow I think he'll weather the storm. I made a donation to their recommended ministry as a memorial.
