My sincere condolences to the family on their loss. Why didn't family members become more involved with the issue of her smoking and using oxygen? That right there would make someone think that these two don't go together. Again, too, maybe this is the way the woman wanted it to escape the pain she must have been in. So sad. Congrats to everyone who was there to help and for their efforts.

May God be with this family at this sad time. Flutterby don't put guilt on the family. People make decisions sometimes without the consent of family and must live or unfortunately die by those decisions. Anyone with oxygen has been instructed by a doctor and by the med supply company on the do's and don'ts of having it in thier home and auto.

Very tragic. That is one of my worst fears, die by fire. As far as the smoking and oxygen. Cmon, let it rest. The lady died a terrible death. That alone is enough for the family to bear.
