I called mom and got the machine today. I was driving home and had to pull off the interstate because dad's voice was talking to me. Mom left the message the same. I called 5 times in a row to hear him while I bawled in a gas station parking lot. I was so not expecting it and it was amazing and hard and great and terrible all at the same time.
Mom to 3 (1998, 2000, and 2009), step-mom to 1 (1995), two four-legged babies who bark, wife and full time student.
My days are busy, my house is messy, and my heart is full!

I understand how you feel. Right after my dad passed away I called his cell phone a few times just to hear his voice. Every once in awhile, I'll watch our wedding video just to see him and hear his voice. It's sad but it makes me feel better at the same time. I'm sorry for your loss.

(((hugs))) I used to call my Dad's cell phone over and over just to hear the message. I don't know what was worse... hearing his voice and knowing I would never get to talk to him again, or the day they reassigned his number and someone else answered the phone.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!

I have been there also. I remember when my mom passed she left me a voicemail the night before she died and I kept that phone for 6 years just so I could listen to her voice whenever I wanted.
