A Woman’s Last Words with her Mother

Just before a young woman’s mother died she had a conversation with her mother and it was recorded on video. It looks as though they lost the sound.

She took to the internet to ask if anyone knows how to lipread and could tell her what her mother’s last words to her were.

A redditor called FriendsAreSh*t wrote this:


Uh huh.

“Did you pack your stuff away […]?”

I’m okay


Do you have anything you want to tell me [….]

“Oh. Is there something you want me to tell you?”

Tell me you love me.

“I love you.”

Thank you

“I do. I think you’re […]”


“You’re pretty proud of yourself, aren’t you/you’re pretty hard on yourself, aren’t you?”


“Oh, I think I would say.. uhh.. maybe about 75% of the time.”


“Strong 75%.”



I’m trying/I try.

“You do good […]” ??

“I have to apologize.”

Okay/for what?

“For some strange reason […]”

It’s okay.


I don’t know sound with shrugging shoulders

Mom takes a drink of water.


Okay, sounds good.

“But, I do […]”


“Don’t eat em all at once, you’ll get pimples”



And then user ThisIsMyDesktop added the following:

If you crank the original audio right up and put your headphones on the side of your throat instead of your ears, you can hear the voice quite clearly.

Uh huh.

You should pack your stuff away and let me read it to you

I’m okay


Do you have anything, do you want to tell me that you like me?

Oh. Is there something you want me to tell you?

Tell me you love me.

I love you

Thank you

I do. I think you know that.


And then we all fell in love with the internet one more time.

Can you help decode this video? I was stunned to learn about the neck trick. Let’s all work together to help this young woman with her video.

Win two passes to the 2017 WITI Annual Summit in San Jose

Women In Technology Summit (And Girls Too)

WITI (Women in Technology International) is one of the first groups for Women in Technology. With a global network approaching 2 million women it’s been a favorite resource of mine throughout my career. In a few days they’ll host their 23rd Annual Summit in San Jose, California and for the 16th year in a row I will be unable to attend because my children seem to attend schools where the WITI Summit is smack dab in the middle of Final Exams or High School Graduation.

Allow me a moment to melt down at the fact that I am nearly in possession of a high school graduate.

Anyhow, back to WITI. This year they have a Middle School and High School track on June 11th. I was offered tickets for myself and my daughter but getting there would be impossible so I want to open it up to you guys.

Would you like two tickets to the 23rd Annual WITI Summit? The program is here and it’s chock full of learning from leaders in their fields. I can tell you this, with Amanda Coolong as emcee and Laurel Mintz hosting a panel I know there is content that will entertain and enlighten. These are two of the smartest women I’ve met in my decade with the Silicon Beach gang.

In any event I asked for the tickets even though I can’t go and two of you are going to win them.

If you’d like to ensure tickets for yourself you can sign up here and use the promo code INSPIRE17 to Save $250 off the conference pass and get a year of WITI membership free. 

If you win the giveaway after having purchased we’ll have WITI refund your purchase price.

We’d be so excited if one of you brought your daughter to the teen program on the 11th which is a partnership with Code Circle.

As someone with a background in both education and technology I cannot emphasize enough how impressive it is that Code Circle teaches the logic behind programming. Anyone can memorize snippets. A real education has girls understanding why those snippets of code exist.

Good luck! I wish I could be there.
