To the Brintnall family, when I first came to Kiowa back in 1997. I had just accepted the GM position, with the OK coop. Dean had come in shortly after I had started looking for something, and I introduced himself. I visited with Dean for quite a while, and being new to area and learning of life Deans life experiences in agriculture, and cooperative system. We had developed a kindship, which to this day I will always treasure. The one remark Dean had me that changed my life was; Always plan for the"What If's". To this day I continue to plan for the what if's. Dean I will miss you and I look forward to the day we see each other again. God Bless to the Brintnall family. Steve Fenton
