At least a tiny measure of closure came today, Saturday, July 23, 2016, to a nightmare week which began with the news that a popular young Adair County couple had lost their lives in a terrible boating accident on Lake Lanier.

The news was first posted on ColumbiaMagazine.com and elsewhere on Friday, July 15, 2016 of the fears that the Reeces would not survive the terrible accident, but the confirmation did not come until Sunday, July 17, 2016, a less than 48 hour wait which seemed an eternity to those who still held out hope.

Irene Foster Burton of Columbia lost her husband J.C. Burton five months ago and now she finds herself struggling to keep things going without him and the income from his garage business in Oak Grove, near Sano.

Part of her grieving and loss includes the burden of looking at things she can possibly sell to help pay the bills, and that process lead her to rediscover a keepsake that she says J.C. had always told her never to sell because it might have collector value someday.
