Shivers. Do you text on your cell phone? Well, this is the story for you my friends.
You see, for the past three years, a woman along with her father and uncle have been sending text messages to a deceased family member in order to deal with the grief. The loved one died from cancer and was buried with her beloved cell phone. When she was alive, she would often text her love ones throughout the day.
You can imagine the shock to the family when they started receiving texts back from their deceased loved one beyond the grave. One of the texts read, “I’m watching over you and it’s all going to bet better. Just pull through.”
Can you imagine the shock, the disbelief and then the miracle of what happened. The family was told that their loved ones number would never be given to anyone else. What in the world was taking place? Just for this moment, it was like they were texting again in the family.
Later it was discovered that the number had been reassigned to someone else who was unrelated to the family. He had been receiving text messages from the family that showed their grief. He thought he would reply to help them.

I agree. I understand how the guy felt in wanting to help but did he really think it through for the grieving friends? XOXO – Bacon

Sometimes having the basics and not texting is a good thing. This would be one of those cases for sure. XOXO – Bacon
P.S. We absolutely LOVED your hat picture from your blog earlier!

oh that must be a shocking moment to get such a message…. that wasn’t the best idea to send an answer…. but probably both sides were shocked… imagine you would get such a sad mail from someone who writes messages to deal with the grief… I had no idea what I would do…

The guy was trying to be so nice but I don’t think he thought it through as to what the receiving grieving family would think. So scary. It would be hard to imagine something like this happening for real. XOXO – Bacon
