Christian Burdette's Funeral Cost

It is with extremely broken hearts that we will soon be laying down Christian to rest. Our family is in need of prayers! Today 10/10/2017 a tragic accident happened, James Burdette (17 years old) and Christian Burdette (12 years old) went for a walk on the trails at High Falls in Jackson, GA. They stopped where they normally do and Christian fell in and tragedy struck when a strong current began to take Christian under. James did everything he could to save his brother but was unsuccessful. James clung to rocks for Several hours where multiple local law enforcement came to help by land and air, but it was too late for Christian. Christian was a daddy's boy (love to go where his dad went) , a little brother, a busy body, loved riding his bikes and just being your "typical boy" that LOVED his family ❤ and all his friends he had the biggest smile we will never forget. He loved going to church he was recently baptized! His life was cut extremely short but we know we can raise our heads to the sky and he will be looking down on us. The pain everyone is going through is just unthinkable! We are in need in this unfortunate time to help pay for his funeral expenses. Anything will help our family in this time. Thank You for your support in this heartbreaking situation ❤
