WICHITA, Kansas – A Kansas family who died in a plane crash in February was honored on the floor of the United States Senate.
Glenn and Elaine Mull, their daughter Amy Harter and granddaughter Samantha Harter, were on their way to the National Cattleman’s Beef Association Trade Show in Nashville when their private plane went down.
Nearby residents consider Mull a hero for making a last second turn to avoid hitting a YMCA.
On Monday, Kansas Senator Jerry Moran honored the family.
“I have met lots of people in my life, and I don’t know that I have ever met a couple with more optimism, with more care and concern for other people,” said Moran.
Glenn Mull was a founding member of the Pawnee Valley Community Hospital foundation, and Elaine Mull volunteered for a number of organizations including the 4-H and Girl Scouts.
