    Crap! I had heard that only bad people were killed by CO.

    If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

    Even "good people" are killed by CO, but ... "very good people" ... why would that happen?
    (Maybe they weren't so "very good" or maybe they would have had CO detectors?)

    It is tragic.

    Three were succumbed and two died. CO poisoning can leave the living as vegetables.

    Yes, it is troublesome to lose someone to something so preventable.

    Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it.

    Low level constant from the bsement boiler and stack effect when the temperatures dropped. The sole CO monitor/alarm in the basement laundry room never went off since the laundry room window was left open as the occupants didn't like the headaches they got whenever using the laundry. A neighbor from the next building was interviewed with a few CO detectors in her arms that same evening when yet a third fell ill on the CFDs second visit to the property hours later. Sad and tragic.
