When good fortune comes your way, some times you can’t help but find the hidden meanings behind the event.
For Herman Iyoupe, it’s as if his late wife was sending him a message.
Almost a year ago, his wife of 46 years passed away from lung cancer, but not before making him a promise.
“She said to me, ‘You know what? I’m going to make sure you that win the lottery because every draw you say you’re going to win it and every draw, people pick [on] you,'” Herman said of the conversation he had with his wife Patricia.
Herman didn’t want to hear any of this sad talk, but she continued.
“She said, ‘I’m going to make sure when I die,’ and I said, ‘Please don’t say that.’ She said, ‘But it’s going to happen.’ So she said, ‘When I die, I’m going to make sure that you win the lottery so they won’t laugh at you anymore.'”
That’s when his fortune changed.
