Credit: @_joshberry – By far this is the hardest story for me to hear – a final goodbye text from #ARtornado victim Jeff Hunter to his mom.

VILONIA, Ark. — A mother from Arkansas is treasuring the final texts sent by her son, one of many people killed by an EF-4 tornado that hit their town April 27.

Jeffrey Hunter sent his mom, Regina Wood, a series of texts as he hid in his bathroom while the tornado approached. She was 20 miles away, according to KNWA.

She said one of the texts reads “Goodbye mama.”

She texted him back several times, asking him if he was OK, but she never got a response.

Jeffrey was found unconscious on the ground, and later died from his injuries.

He was with his father and step-mother, who survived.
