Family receives home surprise in time for Thanksgiving

A Gainesville man who has spent years helping the needy and the homeless received a Thanksgiving Week gift that will change his family’s lives forever.

A representative of Georgia Wealth Advisors surprised Thomas Ramierz and his family Monday with a year’s worth of house payments and more.

The Ramierz family had lived in a two bedroom apartment above the shelter, until someone helped them get a home, and now with a year’s worth of mortgage payments covered, they can get back on solid ground.

Even though the family doesn’t have a lot of money, they took in a three month old little boy who was left at the shelter. That little boy is now seven years old.
