[R] Removing a space from a string

R 4.0.2


I have strings that contain a space in an unexpected location.  The intended string is:
	“STRING 01.  Remainder of the string"
However, variants are:
	“STR ING 01.  Remainder of the string"
	“STRIN G 01.  Remainder of the string"

I would like a general approach to deleting a space, but only if it appears before the period.  Any suggestions on a regular expression for this?
