IRVINGTON, N.Y. (AP) -- An 80-year-old man can hear his late wife's voice again, any time he wants.
Verizon has recovered a lost message recorded by Charles Whiting's wife, Catherine, before her death in 2005.
When Verizon upgraded the man's telephone service, his wife's voice disappeared from his voicemail system. The message said "This is Catherine Whiting," and her husband said he listened to it every day for comfort.
Company spokesman John Bonomo said Tuesday that a contractor found the recording in an archive and restored it to the new voicemail system.
Charles Whiting says he's very happy.
