Marysville resident, Timothy McDaniel, 55, lost his wife last Saturday. The following day he won $650,000 on a California Lottery Lucky for Life scratch-off ticket and is convinced the money is a gift from his dead wife.
"I think she just kind of sent me this money so I could continue taking care of the [grand] kids," McDaniel explained.
"Everything happens for a reason, and this is the break I needed," McDaniel added. "I'm going to keep on working and living my life the same I always have. The only difference is I have a big family, and now if anybody needs anything, I can help them out."
