“Back in middle school, my dad had cancer, so I would give a good amount to the Cancer Society, then I would use the rest to aid in missions work for the Lord — that’s what I’m going into. I would put some into wherever the Lord leads me and some into my family. I would help my mom build a house.”

“I would like to help people. There’s nothing else to do really. I would buy a new home in Suffolk, and a new truck. I would finish paying for my church. When I pick up the check my family would be there with me so everybody will get their share immediately. I would also do whatever mission work that I’m called for.”

Paul Fletcher, 75, Suffolk

“First I would probably build a new church for the church I go to now. I would make sure to take care of my family. I would also travel a lot. I’ve already been all over the world, so I guess I would go all over again.”

Tim Dwyer, 37, Portsmouth

“I would remodel my dad’s house and my mom’s house. I’d get a Porsche GT4 for myself, and leave the rest to my kids. I guess I’d also give some to charity. I’d give to the Oxford House for substance abuse recovery.”
