Dennis truly loves his Western Kansas home. He told us: Out West, each day our senses awake to an array of wide open ranges, a palette of stunning dawns and multihued sunsets, yet the next day may offer a calamitous reversal of thunderous storms, tornadic windswept roadways and dust blown vistas.
A heart fills with greater appreciation of fellow Western Kansans, a generation fortified with innovative wisdom, courageous perseverance, and resilient with values unwavering. We are truly blessed.
