A family who buried their beloved grandmother with her mobile phone is in shock after receiving text messages from her – seemingly from beyond the grave.
The elderly lady’s granddaughter had been texting the phone as part of her grieving process, never expecting to get a reply.
But she was shocked when she got a comforting message on her nan’s number telling her that she was being watched over.
“I’m watching over you, you’ll get through this, you’ll be alright”, the text said.
Sheri Emerson, 22, a care worker from South Shields, asked who she was speaking to, and received another text: “I’m watching over you and it’s all going to get better. Just push through.”
