Chastity Patterson is a 23-year-old woman from Newport, Arkansas, who lost her father four years ago in a car acceident. She has since been texting his phone every day to share updates on her life, and she received the biggest shock of her life when one day she got a response.
Chastity texted her father’s old phone number the night before the fourth anniversary of the day he lost his life, and she wrote:
‘Hey Dad, it’s ME. Tomorrow is going to be a tough day again!’
The least thing she was expecting to the message, though, was an answer.
After sending the long post to her father’s phone and mentioning her triumphs, including graduating college and beating cancer, she received a very surprising reply.
These are the screenshots of the messages she shared:
Chastity was absolutely shocked and touched, so she decided to share the post on Facebook, where it racked up more than 286k shares and over 150k likes.
After the post gained so much popularity and touched the hearts of thousands, Chastity shared an update post in which she explained that her dad Jason Ligons was not her biological father but was the patriarch figure in her life who look after her since she was a child.
