as we traveled home after the funeral, we stopped on
Interstate 80. As I sat on the guard rail looking down
the embankment where the accident took place, I realized
it was the very place I had admired for so many years,
and the peace I had asked the Lord for began..... He
brought to mind things that had taken place over the past
Unfortunately, we had taught our children a lot of
religion (do's and don'ts) but we did not show them much
of the love of the Lord or teach them how to have a
personal relationship with him. Our son saw we did not
live what we preached and it turned him off. He left home

earth is to worship and bring glory to God.
If one person comes to know the Lord from Grinch's story
or this web page, then he has served the purpose God
intended for him on this earth, even through his death.
