The Graveside Service for Mr. Eddie Burnam of Montezuma, Georgia will be conducted on Wednesday, June 10, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. at New Hope Baptist Church Cemetery, Hwy 26E, Montezuma, Georgia. The family realizes COVID-19 has changed the fabric of how we comfort each other in times like these. They are asking that we, as much as possible, practice social-distancing due to Mrs. Laura B. Burnam and other family members that are medically fragile. Because of concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, CDC guidelines have limited the number of people that are allowed to attend services to 10 or less including ministers and funeral staff. Please practice social distancing and WEAR MASKS for your safety and the safety of others.
