I spent one very interesting and lovely afternoon with Meade and Irene when researching for my first book, Stained Glass Rose, which centered around a murder in Grand Junction, in 1937. I learned so much about the police department and the LaCourt Hotel, and they showed me pictures and shared many fascinating stories. What a sweet and generous couple they were. I'm sad for your loss! Debbie Brockett
