My mom’s voice

I haven’t heard my mom’s voice since just after Christmas 2006. She slurred her words starting in January and used a Dynavox starting in July. Those sounds have replaced my memories of her voice. I couldn’t remember it.

Called Dad’s cell today and got his voicemail for the first time ever.

It’s mom on the message.

I’ve got her voice back.

But I can’t hold myself together.

Hugs. I can't imagine how hard that is.

Damn.

I have avoided hearing any of the many recordings of Dad for this reason. I'm fairly sure I'm not ready for that right now.

I am glad you shared this, though.

Sometimes it's good to hear a voice. Those that have passed on leave us with an emptiness. Whenever I get the opportunity to hear things like this. It reminds me of the things that were shared. It's hard, but I wouldn't them in for anything.
