My deepest sympathy to Florene's family. Florene was truly a beautiful and classy lady. One of my fondest memories is when she rode with me from Yankton to San Diego non-stop back in 1979. She refused to sleep and we had so much fun!! When I was in Yankton this May, I visited the Mead Building, currently being restored, I talked to a volunteer during the tour who was from Tyndall. I asked her if she knew Florene and of course Joe in the past, which she did. I know she loved her family very much. She was such a gentle soul. I am blessed to have known her. Rest well dear Florene. Katie Boom
