Mom's voice

The other day I was fortunate enough to find a voicemail on my cell phone from Mom that had not been automatically deleted from my voicemail box. It has since been deleted. David and I could not figure out a way to save the message so he recorded the message onto his cell phone by using the video camera (which is why there is an empty chair). All I cared about was the audio. Now I will always have this cute little soundbyte of my mom's voice.
In this message Mom sounds like "Mom" and not "Mom with dementia".
((The message was dated April 17, 2012.))

As sad as it is, what a blessing to have that recording! In time I hope yoy find comfort and you will listen to it over and over, and smile. Remember the happy times and know she is in a better place. I'm so sorry for your loss.
