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.
