Basic phone with keyboard for texting for elderly woman

My elderly mother has a hard time understanding a smart phone.  She would like a basic phone to use for calls and texting only.  She needs a QWERTY keyboard as she has a hard time texting with the other.  Suggestions?

There isn't enough of a market out there for the type of phone you describe. Some smartphones have simplified UI option that might be work for you if you absolutely need a qwerty style keyboard function with a phone. 

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
