United Kingdom — When Stan Beaton’s wife Ruby died of cancer in 2003, there was one thing he wanted to keep forever – her voicemail message letting people know they weren’t available so he could still hear the sound of her voice.

Unfortunately, some technical work by Virgin Mobile caused that message to be deleted, according to a BBC News report.

That was, until the company’s tech team managed to recover the message.

Watch as BBC Radio Leeds shared the news of the message recovery with Beaton.
