A fallen firefighter is laid to rest.  A procession took place yesterday to honor the life of Dennis Bender, who died last week while fighting a grass fire near Fort Calhoun.  Hundreds of first responders and law enforcement took part in the procession, and residents lined the route near the cemetery.  The Ponca Hills Fire Station also posted a sign thanking Bender for 50 years of service.
