CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (WTVR) — A Virginia woman recently received a surprise gift from beyond the grave.

When Matilda Shumate checked her mail Thursday, she discovered a present from her brother who died a year ago.

Shumate believes he actually sent the package, which contained a new keyboard, seven years ago.

“It hurt because it was the last gift he ever gave anyone — and I wasn’t able to say thank you…,” Shumate said.

Schumate thinks her rural Christiansburg address may be to blame for why the post office lost the package.
