Woman Gets Heartwarming Response After Sending Texts to Dead Brother's Number

 

Ever since her brother passed away, a grieving woman frequently sent texts to his number to say how much she missed him. There were no responses as the number had not yet been reassigned to another user.

The woman was shocked to receive an answer to her texts—one that she said she had been "dreading" because then she would have to stop sending messages to her late brother. However, the woman and the new user had a heartwarming interaction that began when she sent a text saying: "I just MISS YOU so much. God. What the hell."

She shared screenshots of the exchange on a Reddit post, showing the response of the unknown recipient where they said the woman had the wrong number and that they were "sorry to here [sic] you’re missing someone."

According to UNILAD, the woman told the stranger that she was aware of this and informed the other about her brother's death in March. She said she sometimes "liked to text his number like he could hear [her]." It was at that point that she apologized to the unknown recipient, who immediately said she shouldn't be sorry at all.

The stranger told her they "completely understand" and that they were currently going through the same situation. In the text messages, the user said her "cousin who’s like a sister to [them]" was expected to pass away soon. They said that the woman can reach out to the number any time she needed to.

"Also feel free to share anything about your brother," the stranger said, as per UNILAD. "Sometimes it helps just remembering the good times. I know we don’t know each other, but don’t mind being a sounding board."

The woman thanked the stranger and said they were a "good human," telling them to not hesitate in contacting her in the coming months.

Although she was "scared" to open the messages, the woman said she was glad she did because "look how wonderful it turned out."
