"I had the pleasure of meeting you three lovely people last week Wednesday in Shoreline. I sincerely thank you for taking time to inspect our smoke detectors (or lack thereof) and installing some. :) Because of what you shared with me last week, my daughter who lives in Spokane now has smoke detectors and a carbon monoxide detector in her house (actually installed last night)."- Erica, Shoreline, WA
"I was so touched by Mr. Gerry Gibson's time and generosity in coming to my home and installing 6 smoke alarms (a big thank you to the Red Cross as well!).I saw a father who was using his grief to motivate his determination and action. I feel much safer with my children knowing that we no longer have an outdated smoke alarm. What a blessing to receive the smoke alarms for free! You are saving lives and I truly thank you! I have spread the word! Please support this great cause."- Stephanie Hjorten

"I'm a renter in Seattle. Recently the battery in one of the smoke detectors in my place died. It was chirping loudly. I have 5 detectors and I ended up dismantling all of them to get the chirping to stop. Thank you for your help."- Seattle resident for whom we helped get assistance to fix the alarms.

"Gibby, I've never met you. But your dad came today and installed four smoke alarms in my house in your honor. I'm on disability with a very limited income and couldn't have afforded them otherwise. You don't know it, but you may have saved my life ! I won't forget you, dear Gibby. Or the kind heart of your dad either. I only wish I could have met you in this life. My sincerest condolences to your family ....my heart goes out to them ...", - Smoke Alarm Recipient, Snohomish, WA
