Shocked Sheri Emerson received a message from her beloved dead grandma from 'beyond the grave' - after a cruel prankster was given her old number. Lesley Emerson, 59, was buried with her mobile phone because she loved to send her loving family text messages.
Granddaughter Sheri and other close family members continued to 'contact' the dead grandma via SMS as a means of coping with their grief. But a shocked Sheri got a reply telling her: "I'm watching over you, and it's all going to get better. "Just push through."

But, three years after her death, O2 gave her old number to another customer - who answered the messages thinking they were "jokes" from friends.
The new user then turned prankster - and sent a series of replies when he realised his number once belonged to a dead person.
Sheri's blood ran cold until the new owner confessed.
