Moms friend saved Moms phone messages

by jl333 on July 5, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Imagine my surprise when I recently found out that one of my Moms best friends saved a few of my Moms last voice mails. We had no idea had to transfer the messages, so today, my Moms friend, called my phone from a landline, while I let my phone go to voice mail, so she could play my Moms messages on speaker phone onto my voicemail. It worked! I'm so grateful to hear my Mom's voice again. I'm just in awe that she had to repeatedly save these messages for years! Best present ever.
