Vilonia, Arkansas -
A photo of texts sent by a boy to his mother just before a tornado strikes the home he was taking shelter in is making it's way across Twitter and Facebook.
On April 27, according to
KNWA in Arkansas
, Jeffrey Hunter sent his mom, Regina Wood, a series of texts as he hid in his bathroom while a tornado approached.
One of the texts reads: “Goodbye mama.”
It was sent just as the tornado was about to hit.
Regina said she was about 20-miles away when she texted him back, asking him if he was OK.
She never got a response.
Jeffrey died from his injuries. He was with his father and step-mother, but they survived.
Regina tells KNWA that says she takes comfort in the fact that her son thought to say goodbye.
