On this day:

A Father's Heart

Rick Burgess is a familiar name to a lot of Alabamians. He co-hosts the popular syndicated radio show "Rick and Bubba." Through the years, he has brought joy, laughter, and an occasional burst of inspiration into the hearts of his friends and fans.

But saying "friends and fans" doesn't sound quite right, does it? "And" can be a very feeble conjunction sometimes. Everyone knows that a fan of Rick Burgess is also a friend of Rick Burgess. He's just that kind of guy.

This week, as he and his family mourn the loss of his 2-year-old son Bronner, we join them in gratefully celebrating the eternal and ever-loving Heart of a Father - Our Father.

Here's the description of the following three clips:
Rick Burgess, of the Rick & Bubba Show, took the opportunity to speak at the memorial service for his son William Bronner Burgess (also known as "Cornbread" on the show). Bronner had accidentally drowned in the swimming pool at their house. Rick delivers a powerful message showing his family's strong faith in God and helps us to understand what we can do to honor his Father and his son during this earthly tragedy.
