Lost Voicemail of Man's Dead Wife Restored by Phone Company

IRVINGTON, N.Y. ? An 80-year-old man who thought he'd lost the only recording of his dead wife's voice can hear her again, any time he wants. When Verizon upgraded Charles Whiting's telephone service, his wife's voice, saying, "Catherine Whiting," disappeared from his voicemail system.

She had died in 2005 and Whiting said he listened to her voice every day for comfort. He blamed Verizon for the loss, saying, "Now they took her voice away."

But Verizon had archived all the old greetings and messages. Company spokesman John Bonomo said Tuesday that a contractor found the recording and restored it to the new voicemail system.

"I'm glad they rescued it," Whiting said. "I'm very happy."


This is hauntingly sweet.

I wish I could find this guy and give him a hug, seriously.

Shortly after finding the story with the above link, I Google'd around to see if I could find any more in-depth articles on it and came up with this rather rude blog post regarding the elderly man.

I can't find it now, but they were going on about how creepy this guy is and how strange it must be to listen to a dead person's voice.

So what do you call watching home videos or looking at photo albums that happen to have grandparents who've since past away?

Seriously, this guy is harmless, and not only that, substantially wonderful. I mean, he's calling to hear her voice for comfort. That's absolutely beautiful and people who can't see the sweetness in it are ugly inside.
