Home fire safety: Install smoke detectors. Test them often to make sure they work. Replace the batteries at least twice a year. Have a home fire-escape plan. Develop a plan with your family about what to do in case there is a fire. Have a pre-arranged meeting place for your family somewhere outside. Conduct a safety inspection of potential fire hazards in the home and eliminate them. Check room to room to make sure none exists.

Sabina says…A very happy event was the visit from my daughter, Angela, and my grandsons, Eric and Brian. They bring joy and love and all those wonderful things that are so dear.

We had a very sad event since we lost my brother-in-law, John Cardali, who was a wonderful human being and a teacher for more than 38 years. He was truly loved by everyone who knew him or met him.
