Here's some strange things that have happened to me, the person, since my Grandparent have died.
My Grandpa Rex Nickler, as I stated, died on Sunday, December 3, 2000. He loved bananas. I always hated hated hated bananas...in fact, had an allergy toward them. Since he died, I love bananas - I eat one every day, and voila - I am no longer allergic to them.
My Grandma Ginny (Virginia Nickler), died on Tuesday, June 5, 2002. She loved vegetables. I could take them or leave them, but as it seems, since she died, I am a vegetable addict. I eat them raw, cooked, or whatever - before, I was a junk food addict.
My Grandma Teresa (Dad's Mom), died on Monday, February 6, 2006. She had a love for cantaloupe. I HATED cantaloupe. It gave me a scratchy throat, etc. I didn't like anything about it. Well, when she died, I began having this craving for cantaloupe. And lo and behold, it no longer bothered my mouth/throat - and I love the stuff.
Very strange 'traits' of my grandparents that I have acquired since their deaths.
