The 90-second message was left on a phone belonging to a Diane Potts—not the mysterious Samantha whom the speaker addresses. The message allows us to guess that the caller is most likely a British soldier deployed in Afghanistan and that the person he was attempting to reach is his pregnant sweetheart, but that's about it. There's not enough information for any of us to track down Samantha and make sure that she knows that she's dearly loved—and that the father of her child wants to marry her.

Now do you understand why I told you to remind your dear ones that you love them while you can? Good. Now go do it again. [Telegraph]
