A woman who sent text messages to her late father’s phone every day for four years got the ‘shock of her life’ when she got a response. Chastity Patterson, 23, sent her father Jason Ligons updates on her life as a way to keep his memory alive. On Thursday, she sent a message to him on the night before the fourth anniversary of his death, saying: ‘Hey Dad, it’s ME. Tomorrow is going to be a tough day again!’ She sent a long text mourning her father’s passing and mentioning her triumphs including graduating college and beating cancer. So when a man named Brad responded, Chastity said she was ‘shocked and touched’. The man had lost his own daughter in 2014 in a devastating car crash. He said he had been reading her messages every day, saying they had ‘kept me alive’.
