If you have ever driven through the state of Kansas at the height of sunflower season, you know what a sight it is to behold acres and acres of beautiful sunflower “faces”, following the sun from sunrise to sunset. If not, enjoy the sight as Susan Williams saw them late this summer. 

Susan lives close to Wichita and shared these pictures with us when we were redesigning our website. We think that they exhibit the spirit of renewal that represents Good Grief of Kansas. Susan’s mother-in-law, Janet, is an active part of Good Grief of Kansas.
