We all dream of winning the lottery, and then we share our dreams with friends and family. Well one Minnesota woman won the lottery, but she will never be able to see her dreams come true, nor will she ever even know of her winnings.

Ginny McCauley, of Cottage Grove, Minn., died of cancer in November, but two friends she played the lottery with for 30 years continued to buy a ticket. During the Christmas holidays, they scooped up $45,000 in winnings, and shared it with her late husband. Being a huge Green Bay Packers fan, McCauley's husband said if she were alive, they'd be in Dallas this weekend.
