Rick Burgess spoke through most of the ceremony  and friends say it was a testimony to the family's faith.

"I think it was one of the most inspirational services I've heard," one person said.

The Burgess family didn't know many of the people who came or who have sent their condolences, but thoses people call the Burgesses family.

Friends say it's that extended family that's helping the Burgesses get through this tough time.

"It's a testimony to Jesus Christ," another person explains.
