I lost my husband's voice mail recording tonight on the landline because of a power outage.  I would play the greeting when I was feeling low. Listening to his voice would give me comfort.  Tonight I feel like I have lost him all over again. I know this is not the end of the world, but another reminder he is no longer with me.  I am sure I am not the only one that this has happened to.

Hi SmartyAligatorpants... ( I bet that name has a story behind it ;-) )

    I feel as though, if I don't listen to the recordings I have of Paul, I'll forget what he sounds like.  But when I DO listen to them, I start crying again.... It hurts to hear his Doctor's tell him that he will live to see Christmas. ( He did not live that long.)  One one hand I think they lied to him, but on the other hand, maybe they just wanted to relieve his stress.  I don't know anymore.



I used to call my wife's work phone number. She left a message that said she was away from her desk and would be back soon. I found it comforting that she would be back soon, even though I knew it wasn't going to happen. After about two or three months, they assigned someone else to her desk and he recorded a new outgoing message.

Sweet and  bittersweet all at the time.
