    Father left us immense fortune so that / that we might live in safety.

    1. Father left us immense fortune so that we might live in safety.

    2. Father left us immense fortune that we might live in safety.


    Can 'so' be omitted like sentence 2?

    Yes, but he left you "an immense fortune."

    What about "Father left us an immense fortune so we might live in safety."?

    Is this sentence same in meaning with sentence 1?
