    ...with the whole emotional rollercoaster over my dad's passing a few weeks ago. This week was going pretty well.

    My mom called me earlier today on my dad's old cell phone -- I didn't recognze the number because he never called me with it. She explained that she was trying to use up the rest of the prepaid minutes on it.

    I'm sitting here at easy child's soccer practice so I decided to call mom back on that phone to chat while I wait. She didn't pick up and it went to voicemail, which was my dad's voice... it really took me by surprise and now I can't stop crying...

    Oh, yes. I'll never forget the first time I got the machine when I called Mom after Daddy died. I reacted exactly the same as you. I'm so sorry....

    I kept the recording of husband's voice on our phones for several months after he died. It felt to me like I was "erasing his memory" by recording over his voice. I finally did as it was freaking out friends and family and it just felt like the time was "right"
