“I [had to] go to the car, my ticket was in the car! I knew the numbers right away.” After double checking her ticket, she could hardly contain her excitement. “I jumped for joy! I put it in my purse and zipped it up but could barely sleep!”

“It’s been difficult lately but now I plan to get a car, a house for the kids and go to school.” After receiving her check, Moreno looked up and said with a smile, “I’m very thankful—it’s a blessing.”
