    Jeanne and I first met as brides joining a sewing group being organized by mutual friends. The club would meet on the first Tuesday for lunch at homes, always bringing our sewing.
    Our group of nine members continue to meet every first Tuesday, but no longer do we sew. Jeanne and I are the last charter members,
    We all loved and will miss Jeanne. She traveled from Bluffton to attend, and hosted us at her Beautiful Bluffton home.
