We are 14 women who have been friends for 31 years. Started as a quilt group but now we are moral support for each other and share our lives and joys and problems. We have become geographically separated but want to keep in touch. A listserv makes it easier to do so. I can't say that we are "noteworthy" to the world, but we are essential to each other, and our caring extends well beyond the 14 of us.
