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’.
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. Below are the text messages from both Chastity and the man who responded.
