20 Friday, August 5,2011 West Seattle Herald Margaret's car (near) and Edward's blue truck were destroyed by the fire. FIRE: -----Eamiiles am gOing to be 'starting all over again' CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Unable to afford renter's insur- ance on the apartment and only holding liability insurance on their vehicles, all of those things are now gone. The Lighthouse Apartments are operated by Seattle's Union Gospel Mission and the Smiths were living in the reduced-rent, low-income housing to weather tough economic times where Edward has had difficulty finding full-time employment. Edward said Union Gospel is trying to find housing for the dis- placed tenants, but he assumes the few units that are available at other reduced-rent complexes will go to families with children first. "I just gotta go day service (temp jobs) until I get me a real job," Edward said. "Starting all over again." In the face of tragedy, the Smiths maintain a positive out- look grounded in the things that really matter. Not cars, not furni- ture, not clothes, but each other and the support of their family. "We are still alive," Edward said, standing before a calami- tous backdrop exhibiting all they had lost, "and I thank God each moment."
