1st page of the Introduction
Mrs. Gray and I have had the wonderful privilege of having a family. We have been married for 48 years. God blessed us with four wonderful children – Kim, Bob, Karen, and Scott – who have been a challenge, a comfort, and an inspiration to Mrs. Gray and myself.

The sitcoms and reality shows have captured the airwaves by laughing their way into the very fabric of the average family in every little hamlet of this nation.
