“My husband passed away in June 2013. We had separated six months previously. On the day I was informed of his death, I was in my garden with a workman. I was shocked and extremely upset and was concerned about my children receiving the news.
The workman was asked to stay with me whilst someone went to collect my daughter from work. As I was crying, my phone started to ring. It was in my back pocket, and I was too upset to answer, but it would not stop ringing. I then thought it might be the police as they had found my husband’s body. However, my phone showed my husband as the caller, which upset me even more.
Crying, I showed the workman my phone, explaining it was coming from my husband’s phone. We were totally baffled. I eventually answered as I thought it might be the police calling. I only heard static.
I later went to my husband’s flat. He’d been found there, and I was told he had passed away two days previous. His phone was on the floor and showed that no call had been made from it for more than three days. But the log on my phone showed that my husband had called me at 11:15 on the morning of his death, just a few minutes after I received the news. I believe he was calling to say goodbye.”
