Thanks for posting thisI had a friend who died of brain cancer and before she died she left a message on my answering machine.
I had it after she was dead.
I had to delete it. Because hearing her recording gave me this jolt of disbelief and grief.
So you like hearing her voice?Thanks for posting this
My mom died in January. I checked and I don’t have any voicemails from her, but I called her phone nad it went to voicemail, and got to hear her voice again
Thanks for the idea
Now I just have to figure out how to get a voicemail or some recording of her voicemail greeting in case we get around to canceling her phone service
Someone once told me something that helped with that. For the purposes of this exercise it is necessary to envision your parents up in heaven looking down upon you. Do you think that if every time their name was brought up your grief filled response would be something they would enjoy? To have their memory fill you with nothing but grief? What about all the good times? Do you think they would want to have their entire lives reduced to the moment of their deaths?So you like hearing her voice?
It reminds me of what I lost and stirs up my grief, which is alway there beneath the surface.
My sisters have pictures of my dead parents all over their houses.
When I look at the pictures and see them I get a grief burst.
When we have dinners, they like to talk about them.
I have to leave the room.
I'm a sensitive guy.
I miss my mommy.
