Saturday morning we lost a very speacial young lady in our lives. My sister-in-laws niece (4 yrs old) was taken away from us in a deadly house fire. She is loved so deeply and she will be greatly missed! She will forever be in our hearts.
The main reason that I am posting this is that the house she was in had no smoke detectors at all. My mission here in her memory is to make sure that everyone has all the necessary smoke detectors in their house that they should have. There should be one in every bedroom and one outside the bedrooms. One in every room except the kitchen (should be just outside the kitchen because of regular cooking smoke). Should be one in the same room as your furnace also with a carbon monoxide dector. I believe that if you call your local fire department they will come to your home and do an assesment for free to make sure that you have what you need. They will either tell you what to get or may be able to give them to you at no cost. All you need to do is ask. What's the worst that they can say... Please, I beg of you to do this...if not for you, do it for the ones you love. Please pass this along to everyone that you know.
I would hate for anyone else to lose someone that they love just because they don't have a smoke detector where they need one.
God has one special, beautiful angel by his side.
Thanks for listening.
