Very sorry to read about Strom. Knew him well when he and I worked at DFS, formerly the Florida Insurance Department. He was a great employee to have in our agency. Smart and could 'wade' through tough issues.

So sorry to learn of Strom's passing. He helped my former boss, pass many unclaimed property rules and regulations. He definitely was a character and will be greatly missed.
