    On what the family had planned for the money:

    Amber, who left a longtime job in human resources for a local engineering firm to stay home with Haylee and her brother Hayden, 6, can more comfortably continue that role. Marvin will keep on working as an independent truck driver, and maybe invest in his own business some to build it, he said.
