There are no words I can find to soothe, nor explain so that we of mortal minds can understand. I can only pray that the time comes with Godspeed when sad mourning turns to peaceful comfort, that time when we all know in our heart of hearts that the reason Conner is no longer in his family's house is because he is now in God's house. You are in mine and my family's prayers!
I am so sad and upset by this horriable accident! However, I could not imagin if this was my own son the pain and nightmare u are going thur! I pray that god eases the pain and u can find rest! I am so very sorry! May god be with the Burch family!
Please accept our sympathies and know that many people are praying for you. Also know that while he is gone he will not be forgotten. He has inspired a bunch of boys he played with and against as they learn to understand how precious their lives are and how they can live their lives with grace and meaning. While we cannot fathom the grief you feel remember that you are loved and are not alone. God bless you and your family.
Conner will forever by in our hearts!! My God's grace carry you through this most difficlt time. Your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry for your loss. I too lost a child in 1999 and it's not an easy task to handle. Keep your faith strong even when your days are gray. I promise the days will finally brighten again but only in time, you will go through so many stages of emotion. What helped me was writing my feelings down, it still hurts but I have been able to move on and I keep his picture with me every where I go. I may have lost the being but I will never forget his smile, his laughter and the love he had for everyone. May the lord stand with you and your family. May he stay with you even after you are able to stand on your own again. With all my love and may all my prayers be yours.
Your Little Angel is in Heaven with God. I know it got to be so hard on the Family. May God Bless you with Strengh to make it through each Day..I will continue to Pray for your family..Stay BLess
My heart aches for you all during this darkest time in your life. I pray for all of you for peace and for comfort. Having lost a son myself in 95 i can assure you it will get easier with time. Focus on the fact that he is in heaven and you will see him again soon. Everyday i pass by the memorial for him on my way to work. It just breaks my heart knowing you have to go through the loss and pain. I will continue to pray for comfort and peace. With deepest sympathy....
You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
To The Burch Family:
I pray that the love of God will surround you and give you the strength to face the days ahead.
I'm heartbroken over the loss of your beloved child. No words I can say will provide you the comfort you need at this time. I do pray that God will give you the strength and peace you need to walk this journey now and in the days and months to come. Cherish the memories you hold of Thomas and know that he will always be a part of your family and with you. He will never be forgotten as long as you hold him in your heart. "Death leaves a heart no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal." May God bless you and comfort you now and forever.

IN TIMES LIKE THESE, WE WANT TO QUESTION GOD "WHY"? KIDS ARE SUPPOSE TO BURY THEIR PARENTS, NOT VICE-VERSA. BUT, WE KNOW HE HAS A "SPECIAL" PURPOSE FOR CONNER. HOPEFULLY TIME WILL HEAL YOUR HEAVY HEARTS. WHAT A PRECIOUS BOY YALL RAISED. HE WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED & LOVED.
So sorry for your loss...praying for your strength during this season of sadness.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Our deepest sympathy and prayers go out to your family. Knowing Conner was a pleasure and precious memories of him down on the farm in Dublin, Ga. We will never forget the time Conner and Kevin wading out in the field pond, getting mud on their shoes and legs up to their knees.
Sympathy from us, to all the Burch family.
May God's Grace and Love be with all of you.
Love You All

You were the baseball champion and that's awesome we at LGMS will make you live on forever.:'(
Prayers are being sent up as you grieve but there is no comfort right now because you have a void and only our Lord and Savior can feel that void. We pray for you and with you because I know you are asking God to give you strength and he will. just keep him two steps ahead of you and he will make every breath and step for you. God bless you and keep you. He will be missed in body but not in spirit. My deepest condolences.

Jim, Bern, and Kevin:
My heart is breaking for you. When I think about sweet Conor, I remember him and Meredith at the ball field while the Sandgnats were playing baseball, and we wouldn't see them for a while and they would come back the two filthiest children you had ever seen, with Conor's smile lighting up his face, without a care in the world. There are no words that can give you comfort, but know that you have been and will continue to be constantly in our thoughts and prayers.
I hope you will play lots off
baseball with the LORD.we know
that you will be a good fit for
his team .............HOMERUN ALL THE WAY ALL DAY.R.I.P BROTHER

Though I have never known your family, or your loved one, I wanted to send you my sincere condolences to you. I pray that God covers you with His love during this difficult time.

I pray that you may find some comfort in knowing that he is in a better place and that he is with the Father. I will continue to pray for your family.
I saw this right after it happened, I prayed for Conner and his family all day just like I promised his Mom I would. My heart aches for the family. Please look over them during this time.
Heaven gained an angel today and we lost one here on earth. Our prayers and condolences go out for your entire family.
My Family extends heart felt condolences to you in the loss of your precious beloved Son and Brother. May the presence of our lord and savior Jesus Christ surround and comfort you.

You had a plan for Connor, but GOD has a bigger one. Cherish the memories, remember the love from Connor and live as he would have wanted you too! You were blessed to know that angel!! Take care!!!
My heart really hurts for you and the pain you feel. There are no words that can possibly express how sorry we all are about your loss. My mother lost two of her Angels and I lost two as well although in different ways. Know that God is here and all we can do is draw strength from him and each other. I know that no words can make this better right now. Only God Can. Look to him for strength and in your family and friends. I will pray for comfort for you and your family. Bless you.
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
So sorry for the loss of you son. Praying for you and your family. God Bless You All.
Words cannot express but prayer will bring you through.
I didn't know you little brother, but I know your Dad. He's a good man, and I'm sure you were probably on your way to being that way just by reading a response from one of your friends. RIP, and I'm praying for you and your family.

My thoughts and prays go out to the family of this little angel. May our God continue to lead and be with you.
I only met you once or twice. but most of the time and it was in art. its kind of sad that one day your running around with my art project and i was chasing you to get it back. to be honest it was kind of fun. I thought you were pretty cool from that time forward. I am not sure if you heard my dad tonight but he said God needed a new player for his all star baseball team. You are the newest addition. I know you will win every match. Your in a good place now. Miss you buddy, rest in peace. :'(
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
