My Dad sent this message to me over Facebook Messenger the night before I was supposed to fly home from a trip to Paris. . . He died last year. I listen to this message every time I fly now.
Almost 4 years ago I heard a voicemail on PostSecret from a girl’s deceased grandmother singing to her. I decided that I wanted to keep voicemails from my loved ones just in case. I am so very thankful for that secret because now I have my dad’s voice to listen to. he passed away 4 years ago.
The second part I didn’t even know I had till after he died. It is just a silly call about picking up ham but to me now it means the world.
I saved many voicemails from my dad and made them into this piece of artwork.
He died on Valentine’s Day.
This is my favorite piece of artwork I’ve ever made.
