When Sherri Emerson’s grandmother died of bowel cancer in 2011, she placed the woman’s cellphone in her coffin so she could still text the dearly departed.

The 22-year-old care worker from eastern England begged her grandma Lesley’s phone company, O2, not to give away the number she had so many memories of messaging — which they promised to do.

But three years later, Sherri received the shock of a lifetime when she looked down at her phone and saw a text message from “beyond the grave.”

“I’m watching over you, you’ll get through this, you’ll be all right,” read a bone-chilling message from Lesley’s number.

When Sherri demanded the mystery texter reveal themselves, they strangely told her they were ”a disturbing vegetarian.”

“I’d sent a message on the Wednesday night telling Nan about family life, and then I got the reply on Thursday,” she said. “Obviously we know that Nan wasn’t ever going to reply to our texts. It was just something we did as a comfort for ourselves, because she loved to text. You can imagine what I was thinking seeing a message flash up from her.”

Sherri’s uncle, Graham Emerson called Lesley’s number and said he spoke to a man who claimed he’d been using the phone for weeks. He explained to Sherri and her uncle that the only reason he even responded to the messages was because he thought the whole thing was a hoax.

“I took it out on him, but it wasn’t his fault at all,” Sherri said. “It makes me feel sick, there’s not a word to describe it.”

Sherri was even more disturbed that somebody was able to get her grandmother’s number.

“Loads of horrible things were running through my head,” she said.

“How did somebody get her telephone? Had they been getting all the texts?”

O2 has since spoken with the Emerson family and has apologized for the situation.
