GREAT BEND, Kansas – On Tuesday, family and friends gathered to remember Glenn Mull, Mull’s 63-year-old wife, Elaine Mull; their daughter, 40-year-old Amy Harter; and her 16-year-old daughter, Samantha Harter.
“They were, they were just extraordinary people,” said Jennifer Ladwig, Mull’s daughter and sister of Amy Harter. “This is just an incredible outpouring of love and support, and we just couldn’t ask for more, support and love from everyone. It’s just been what’s giving us the strength to get through it.”
The family, who operated Mull Farms and Feeding, was on their way to a cattlemen’s trade show in Nashville when their plane went down last Monday.
Glenn, who was piloting, is being called a hero.
Those who saw the plane go down said Glenn made a hard right before it crashed avoiding hitting anyone at a crowded YMCA.
“We’re so thankful that no one else was injured or killed in this incident,” said Doug Harter, husband of Amy Harter and father of Samantha.
For Doug, who lost his wife and teenage daughter, he said the love of the family was known throughout the community.
“A stranger to this family was a friend they hadn’t met yet,” said Doug. “They were amazing people, and they will be greatly missed.”
Now as Doug and Jennifer remember their loved ones lost, they know the community will honor their memory.
“Touched so many lives in ways that we knew and ways that we will continue to find out, in the days and weeks to come,” said Jennifer.
