When you call our house, you will hear Majīd’s voice on the answering machine asking you to leave a message. We kept it as a memento. We were out the night before last and my late husband’s mother had called. Hearing Majīd’s voice brought tears to her eyes. The rest of her message was recorded; she said, “Hello, dearest. [I just called because] I wanted to hear the children’s voices.” She then said in her Āzarī dialect, “Would that I were sacrificed for the sake of your voice.” I called my mother in law last night. She had a lump in her throat [from her grief, and she spoke with difficulty]. She said that she had heard Majīd’s voice [on the machine]. I said, “I kept it for your sake. Whenever you miss him, call our number. Majīd will answer after seven rings.”
