On May 22, 2013, Tom Burress who you hear sing most of these songs and the writer of all of them took his heavenly flight. Please continue to pray for the Burress Family as they struggle to continue on and to do the work that Tom left behind. I pray these songs will be a great blessing to you as Tom was all about ministering and reaching people. We know there is a great homecoming very soon where we will be reunited with Tom and all of our loved who have passed on who was ready to go as Tom as was. God bless all of you - Sincerely - Vonda Burress (wife), Amber Applegate (daughter), Mark Applegate (son-in-law) and Ireland Dewitt Applegate (grandson) who carries on his middle name (Dewitt).
For many years “The Burress Family” has carried the gospel of Jesus Christ to many, many people across this great country, through singing and preaching. “We have watched in awe as God has performed some of the most awesome miracles that we have ever seen”!
