WHEREAS, our colleague, the Senator from the 10th District, Senator Harry Wiggins, is not only a certified member of the Greater Kansas City Skydiving Club, but spent Saturday afternoon with the members of the club, preparing for Spring and Summer activities, and departed only minutes before the fatal crash, returning shortly thereafter to assist his remaining friends in the aftermath of a great tragedy;
