- I text my dad everyday to let him know how my day goes, for the past Four years! Today was my sign that everything is okay and I can let him rest! – Chastity Patterson
An American 23 year old lady, Chastity Patterson, was left in shock after she received a text from her late father’s phone after she continuously messaged him for four years.
Chastity sent her late father, Jason Ligons’ phone text message updates on her life as a way to keep his memory alive, and last week, a night before the fourth anniversary of his death texted his number saying: ‘Hey Dad, it’s ME. Tomorrow is going to be a tough day again!
To Chastity’s shock and surprise, a man named Brad responded, revealing that he lost his own daughter in 2014 and that her texts have kept him going.
After reading his text, Chastity said in a Facebook post that his reply shows her father is at peace.
Brad’s message read: ‘Hi sweetheart, I am not your father, but I have been getting all your messages for the past four years. ‘I look forward to your morning messages and your nightly updates.
‘My name is Brad and I lost my daughter in a car wreck August 2014 and your messages kept me alive. ‘When you text me, I know it’s a message from God. ‘I’m sorry you lost someone so close to you, but I have listened to you over the years and I have watched you grow and go through more than anyone.
‘I have wanted to text you back for years, but I didn’t want to break your heart.’
He added: ‘You are an extraordinary woman and I wish my daughter would have become the woman you are, thank you for your everyday updates, you remind me that there is a God and it wasn’t his fault that my little girl is gone.’
According to her profile, on Facebook, Chastity went to Newport Senior High school, USA from August 18, 2011 to March 16, 2014
