On the night of December 5th, 2018,  brother and sister, Josh and Lily Burgess, were in a car accident on Wade Hampton Blvd in Taylors, SC.

Josh was killed and Lily was severely injured, requiring extensive orthopaedic surgery.

It is our deepest hope that Lily’s surgery goes well and she can begin her lengthy recovery.

Nothing can assuage the anguish of parents losing a child, especially while attending the bedside of another child, facing pain and challenges.

We hope that this campaign can assist in reducing the family's financial burdens, especially those incurred in making untimely funeral arrangements and the unforeseen medical expenses.

Please join us in our fundraising efforts, by contributing whatever you can, and sharing this campaign with others.

Our hearts and minds are with the Burgess family as they begin their journey of mourning and healing.

Long day, and a good day. God has graced Bonnie and I with divine strength and courage. Lily is in her room and was able to get out of bed today during physical therapy and a walker. Tomorrow is going to be a hard day for Lily, as PT is quite painful right now. Please pray for her strength and healing!

Again we thank everyone for the continuous love and support! It is so humbling and appreciated!

“The nonstop pouring out of love to our family has been so humbling. We will forever be grateful for the overwhelming support that is helping us through this hard time!

Praise be to God, this morning Lily is doing incredibly well! While we were so happy to have her removed from the ventilator, it saddened us to know that this morning we had the most heart wrenching task of letting her know that her big brother is no longer here with us, but with his and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Lily is recovering quickly, and she is looking forward to getting out of bed as soon as possible.

Bonnie and I got a lot of rest last night. We can’t even begin to thank you all for your continued prayers, love and support. Words cannot express our gratitude.

We will begin making arrangements for Josh’s funeral soon and will post when finalized.

Jeffrey is also recovering, and we got to see him last night for a few minutes. He has a broken ankle and a concussion. He wants to come see Lily today, and I hope he can, Lily wants to see him desperately!

We have cried tears of sorrow and love reading and hearing all the people that have said that Josh made a difference in their lives from children to senior adults. We are so grateful for the 17 years that God graced our lives with our precious son. We are so proud of the young man he had become.

We feel numb, like this still isn’t real. The only thing that keeps us moving forward is the FACT that he accepted Christ as his personal Savior, and that he is, without a shadow of doubt, in the presence of Jesus right now!”
