I can think of a few people who’ve died, who I’d like to be able to call and hear their real live voice on the other end. I wish it was as simple as wanting it badly enough.

Yea, boy am I lucky. Tomorrow doesn't always come. People have left some very interesting comments on that post regarding losing family members. Your comment about hearing her voice on your answering machine reminds me of a comment someone left. She still has her grandparents' phone number in her phone. Can't delete it.
