Condolence From: James Burns
Condolence: Dear Joyce and family,
I am so sorry to hear that Romaine has passed away recently. Romaine and I were in the high school class of 1947 and I always liked to see him at high school reunions in Estherville and enjoyed our short visits in those every five year events.
Very sorry to read of his passing. I have lived away from The area for many years in the Boston area so the news comes to me slowly. Please accept my sincere condolances..James Burns..
