Chastity’s Facebook Post
In addition to the screenshots, Chastity shared a copy of Brad’s message on her Facebook feed, as follows;
“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,”
She shared how Brad congratulated her growth and encouraged her strength, calling her his own “angel”, and stating how her messages saved him after the loss of his own daughter in a devastating car crash. As follows;
“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,” He gave me you, my little angel and I knew this day was coming. Everything will be okay, you to push yourself every day and shine the light God gave you. I’m sorry you have to go through this, but if it makes it any better, I am very proud of you.
