How Do I Love Thee? 

If you live with someone you love: spouse, child(ren), partner, “significant other,” relative, or pet(s), what’s a good way to say “I Love You”? Let me count the ways: 

• Help keep them secure: install an automatic gas shut-off valve and have your retrofit checked (the majority of retrofits won’t do the job)  

• Help keep them safe: Get your furniture and wall hangings secured. 

• Help keep them healthy after the quake: assemble or buy emergency kits for home and car(s). 

Don’t just tell them you love them— show them you love them. Make your home secure and your family safe.
