      This story reminds me of a family friend of ours who was a nursing aid in NY. For years she work for this older lady and they would always talk about winning thye lottery one day. After the lady died, our family friend had a dream in which she saw the lady and they talked abou 6 six numbers. No lie. She got up, wrote the numbers down and on that saturday forgot/dismissed it and didnt buy the local State lottery like she normally did. Guess what? Yep! ALL SIX NUMBERS came up.

      Last Christmas when the Mega Millions was going through the roof she sat and told us how she has never gotten over it. Not so much because she missed out on a good chunk of cash, but because she felt like she let the old lady down. She also laments a missed opportunity. An opportunity she beleives was ordained for her to do something special (help others ect.). She cried talking about it.

      Sorry for the gloomy story, just wanted to point out that these things do happen.

          If i'm not mistaken, wasn't there a similar story a few years ago about a guy who lost his mom and few weeks later had a dream in which he saw her and they talked about some numbers? After having the dream he went out and bought about $800 worth of tickets of the same numbers. He was so confident that he would have won that he increased his winnings by millions, i think it was like one of those pick 5 lotteries, where instead of winning like $100k, because he purchased so many winning tickets, he ended up with something like $5 Million. Anyone remember this?

          I believe in these things you know.

              I remember. It was such an amazing story, hard to forget.

              I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

              The odds are about the same.

                    If the winning numbers were 5,7,11,23 and 31 how did he win the jackpot with the numbers 5,7,11,23 and 35?

                      I think it may have been a typo. The article initially mentioned that he did play 5,7,11,23 and 31

                        A Chatsworth, Georgia, man claimed a lottery jackpot from the Georgia Lottery after playing his late wife's special numbers.

                        David Greeson, 51, was one of three players to win a $77,921 jackpot prize from the Feb. 25 Fantasy 5 drawing, matching all five winning numbers.

                        The winning numbers from the drawing were 5, 7, 11, 23, and 31.

                        David Greeson knows those numbers by heart. Not because they won him $78,000, but because they remind him of his late wife.

                        "Her birthday was 11/23/57 and we were married on the 31st of October. Since her passing on December 6th, I've played those numbers every night. 5 , 7, 11, 23, 31."

                        Greeson admits, he's always played the lottery at least a few times a week with numbers that have meaning. But for the last 3 months since his wife of 26 years, Kathy, passed away Greeson has played these numbers every single night.... 7 days a week.

                        Then one day, a couple weeks ago, he won.

                        "I looked on my phone, punched up fantasy 5, and seen 5, 7, 11, 23, 35, and first thing I said was 'Kathy, our numbers hit."

                        Kathy's death came suddenly. She died within a couple weeks of being diagnosed with lymphoma cancer.

                        Greeson says his wife loved to travel. That's why he wants to use the money to go back to the places where they created so many memories.

                        And while Greeson says the money is a nice bonus, ultimately, the jackpot was matching those numbers. "I hope it's a sign from her that she's ok."

                        The total purse that David could have won was $230,000, but 2 other people in Georgia also had those lucky numbers. No word on why those people chose those numbers.

                        Congrats to him.

                        His wife is definately watching over him  from heaven!  Blue Angel

                              I feel bad for your family friend. I hope she wins something so that she can heal.
                              That's why playing the same set of numbers could also potentially destroy a man. Imagine skipping a drawing because of some silly thing as a lottery terminal malfunction at your favorite store and your numbers showing up?  I get sick to even think about it.

                              That money's gone fo ever
