“Homecoming celebration’ held for three fire victims

For those with faith, the timing of the salvation and death of Christopher Greve was no accident. Just days after the 31-year-old Kansas City man was baptized, he died Wednesday in a house fire along with his two children. And on Saturday in the same Belton church where he professed his newfound faith last Sunday, more than 200 people gathered, not for a funeral but for a “homecoming celebration” to commemorate the lives of Greve; his 7-year-old daughter, Donnica Runnels Greve; and his 2-year-old son, Brinton Greve.
