Losing a family member is hard and people learn to cope in different ways. James O’Brien, a radio presenter, had given his daughter a phone that didn’t have a cellular connection to play games on. The phone still had all of O’Brien’s contacts.
Recently, O’Brien discovered his daughter had been sending emotional text messages to her late grandfather. He shared the touching messages on Twitter.
“My youngest has had my old phone for a couple of years,” he explained. “Just for games, which I download for her before disconnecting the internet. Still has my old contacts though & it turns out she’s been messaging my dad, who died 5 years ago.”
