Tear Jerking Texts

James O’Brien, who is a British journalist and radio presenter has shared the heartbreaking texts he discovered on his old phone which his daughter was using to send messages to her dead grandfather.

James passed on his old phone for his daughter to use to play games..

But evidently his young daughter was using the phone for more than just gaming.

The phone still had his old contacts and it turns out his daughter had been messaging her Grandfather, who died 5 years ago.


James shared the messages to Twitter  which is not known for being a place of compassion or kindness, let alone a place where you might find emotional support, however many began sharing their own stories about their lost family members, turning the Twitter feed into an unlikely forum for remembrance and the outpouring of grief for loved ones who had passed away.
