I guess Joe was right. Drunk and speeding and blew right through the red light. You can remove the word accident from the story. Very senseless.

Some of the comments made are unthinkable. Such lack of regard for a grieving widow & family & THE TRUTH of the situation from God's view point. God makes it VERY clear in His divinely inspired Word, that marriage is "until death..."...w/ ONLY . 1 exception, permission to divorce for adultery. That is God's grace b/c He KNOWS that some people cannot recover from that. This is all in the Bible, not rules men made up. HOWEVER, Kathy's choice was to remain faithful, walk in fellowship w/ God, pray for her husband & marriage, seek Godly council, forgive repeatedly and give Jack total respect and honor God when she eulogized him. Respect is what God's commands a wife give her husband. All her actions were and are Christ like and completely in order with God's will. Marriage is sacred...Holy. ALL "relationship" outside of marriage IS ADULTERY. He was still married! God is more than able to restore a marriage to "better than before" if both parties surrender to God and repent and woe to anyone who interfere's in what God is doing. God's opinion IS THE ONLY ONE THAT COUNTS. Bible warn's that the world will hate us Christians & God's Word we speak. A 29 year marriage & bearing someone's children can NEVER be overshadowed by an "fling" that should not be. My view is "qualified" b/c I have lived in each of these positions BEFORE I repented, returned to Christ & am in a Christ centered marriage. My compassion for E's children is great as well, with these circumstances...

I am curious as to your opinion (with regards to what the Bible says) on drinking and driving then killing someone because you are drunk?.No longer an accident....how sad

UNFORTUNATELY THIS MOTORCYCLIST WAS INTOXICATED AND BLEW THE RED LIGHT BY SEVERAL SECONDS. LET'S NOT BE SO FAST TO ASSUME IT WAS THE CAR WHO WAS AT FAULT!
