I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. I will always remember the laughs we had at the Barnes House and the many talks we had over our morning coffee. I will also remember our trips to Greenville plant shopping filling the front and back of the truck. My deepest sympathies go out to you and your families.

Donna and Tracie! For the last several weeks, I have been checking my mail looking for a letter from Jeanne and when I got the news of her passing I was devastated. she has been my life long friend for 70 years. I will miss her so but as I have been pondering her passing, I can just see her walking down those golden streets surrounded by Daisy, Clayton, Peggy and Betsy, your dad and all the people she loved. Her friends will never forget her. she was a remarkable person and always a role model for many of us… I loved her !
