Brad Renfro's Family Challenges Those Who Would Cast Stones

At a Monday funeral and memorial service for Brad Renfro in his hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee, the actor's officiating great-uncle Michael Earl insured that no one in the gathering of 600 would speak ill of the actor, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports. "Brad had problems just like I have problems, just like you have problems, just like all of us have trials and tribulations that we go through," he said in his sermon. "Was Brad perfect? Well, I can tell you, I'm not. Are you?"Later, the paper quotes Earl as saying that Brad "lived life, and he enjoyed it. Whatever he did, he did it hard as he could. If he messed up, he'd go after it 100 percent." The results of Renfro's autopsy are expected back in six weeks.
