RE: Your Mom
My best friend missed a routine telephone call that will forever haunt him.
It was 10 pm, and at this time every night, his mom was calling to say goodnight! In this particular message, she was already in bed but wanted to tell her son how much she loved him. It would be the last time this only-child would hear his mom’s voice –she sadly died in her sleep.
He has played that loving telephone message every day since her passing two years ago.
Based on my best friend’s heartfelt experience, I find myself storing all my mom’s telephone messages as if they were her last recorded impression. I never want to forget her infectious laugh, the gentle cadence in her voice when she is excited or the bedtime greeting I have heard for over 40 years: ‘Night, night son!’
EVERYONE: Do you have a special memento to remember your Mom by? If so, RECord yourself talking about it and discussing how has it helped you preserve her memory.
