I would like to discuss inheritance and the effect on it by English grammar rules. Let’s examine the same sentence with just one small word difference: "What things of my Father’s were left TO me?" versus "What things of my Father’s were left IN me?"

You may remember something about prepositions from high school English class. Mrs. Cattani taught me that anything a train can do to a mountain is a preposition. For example: in, to , around, over, under, etc. They are often idiomatic. In other words, the meaning of the phrase is determined by the choice of prepositions.
