As my wife's health was detoriating due to her cancer spreading throughout her body and I started trying to prepare for my upcoming journey into grief-land, I came across the fact that one of the things that you will forget the quickest is the sound of your spouse's voice. I never recorded her voice and she didn't have a voice mail recording on her cell phone. This was one my biggest regrets since I knew about this but I just thought we had so much more time left together.
Today I was working on getting all the pictures and phone numbers off her cell phone before I cancel the service and just for the heck of it I decided to check the "Voice Notes Recorder" app. I was surprised to see that there was a 5 second recording from April of last year. When I played it, it was indeed a recording from my sweetie "I love you the mostest!". We always told each other how we loved each other the mostest. The recording was less than two months before her first oncologist told her that she only had 2-3 months left.
I'm so relieved to have received this last gift from her!
