"Too soon we breast the tape and too late we realize the joy lay in the running." There wiil never be a bond as close as that of the one with boys and their dear Mom. Cherish the many many times both of you had with your Mom and how she cheered y'all on under all circumstances!

Many years ago, I saw this on a church sign: "God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December." I only saw Mrs. Burton a few times at James' festival, but I could see the love between a mother and her son. That's precious. I can only imagine the joy she felt when she saw Jesus face. My prayer is for God's grace to give you peace and comfort during this time.

So sorry to hear of Mrs. Burton's passing. I only met her a couple of times, but she impressed me as being quite a woman. I'm sure you'll all miss her very much. Be happy for her. She's back with the man she loves and in the eternal presence of God.

Dear Burton cousins, I'm so sorry for your loss. I have so many fond memories of Aunt Lola that I will cherish for the rest of my life...from childhood when she would call my dad, Bub, to come cut the tails off her newborn puppies to her and Uncle Guy heading out to Cross Lake with the fishing polls hanging out the windows of the Cadilliac for a day of fishing. She will surely be missed by all.
love,

James, Jim, and the rest of the family, I knew Mrs. Burton and her husband for a long time; met them when they used to come into dad's store on Midway Street. She was a warm, sweet lady and I visited with her at her house on Lindholm Street from time to time. All I can add is that she was a great person and will be missed by everyone who knew her. James and Jim, I am so, so sorry for your loss. You're in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace, Mrs. Burton.
