People of Lee Terrace: Thomas from Aliquippa, Pennsylvania

Since the first of the year I have been doing a newsletter called "The Highriser" for the church here at Lee Terrace. Each month I feature a resident of the building and I do a little article about them. I put whatever they want in it. I am going to do a series of blogs featuring these articles.


Thomas from Aliquippa, Pennsylvania
Thomas is an army veteran. He says joining the military was the best thing he ever did. He was in the service in the early seventies. He was never married but he has 5 children and 3 grandchildren whom he loves very much.
He has several words of wisdom that he would like to share with others.
1. Don't take that first drink or that first smoke - some people can walk away and others cannot.
2. His family creedo: Education, Work, Charity
3. Without hope there is only despair. Try to give hope to others whenever you can.
He is grateful to the military and to all the charities around the city of Charleston which have helped him. They gave him hope. He is also grateful to Lee Terrace.
