My sympanthy goes out to her family, friends, and caretakers. It was an honor and privilege to know her. My visits to her home were unbelieveable. She was like a living history book, telling about her life and stories about her prized positions in her home and childhood. I will never forget about her daily game of counting the train cars while rocking on the front porch. She will be missed. Mrs. Etta Mae was the oldest member and a true Granddaughter of the Alexander H. Stephens United Daughters of the Confederacy #328.

Jimmy, our sympathy on the loss of your mother. What a full life she lived and shared with us all. My memories of visiting the Post Office and store with my Grandfather, Quince Burton, are still vivid: sliding down the flag pole off the front porch, reaching into a cold drink box, and taking hours to select 5 pieces of penny candy. My Mother Anita was very fond of you all and she will be glad to see your Mother join her now that they have both gone "over home"...

Cousin Etta Mae has always been an inspiration to our family.My grandmother,Pauline Murden Burton,always spoke fondly of her and loved her dearly.I remember childhood visits to Robinson,how my cousins and I always visited cousins Etta Mae's and Gertrude's store.She helped us with penny candy, and would take interest in us, remembering our names, and who belonged whom. We kids enjoyed jumping off the porch, and sliding down the flagpole. Now as my Mother, Annette's health is declining at 89,I am saddened to know that the last members of our family tree, raised on that sweet piece of earth known as Robinson, GA are leaving us, but I am comforted to know that we will all be together with our Lord. I am so happy that 3 years ago,I brought my beloved, Andrea from California to take Mother to Homecoming. The highlight was sitting and talking with Cousin Etta Mae. When speaking of her years in New York City, she said, "I walked all over it". She also told us about the monthly bookmobile. We were so inspired by her strength and clarity and life story at nearly 100. Three days later,Andrea and I got married in Macon.Our wonderful shared memory of Cousin Ettta Mae will stay in our hearts as a source of inspiration for our life. God Bless you and your family, Jimmy. If there is anything we can ever do for yall please feel free to call me in Atlanta on my cell,770-365-2858. Love in Christ, Jimmy and Andrea Waters
