Widow’s Voice Lives On

Oh, the wonderful world of telecommunications! Verizon dug up an old phone message left by 80-year old Charles Whiting’s wife, Catherine, recorded before her death in 2005. After she passed, Whiting would listen to his wife’s voice on their voicemail for comfort — but when Verizon upgraded the system, the message was erased. The company managed to find the recording in their archive and restored it for Whiting’s listening pleasure. May we recommend making a second copy on a handy-dandy tape recorder, just in case?
