Does anyone have a handy-dandy SQL2K User-defined function to remove any apostrophe's from a string?

SELECT @INSD_LAST_NAME = dbo.SomeFunction(pers.PERS_LAST_NAME)
FROM PERS_PERSON pers
WHERE blah blah blah

If pers.PERS_LAST_NAME is O'Malley, then @INSD_LAST_NAME would be assigned the value of OMalley.

TIA
Jim
