MOORE, Okla. – Family members of the mother and baby killed in Monday’s tornado said they “appreciate the outpouring of love and support from friends and strangers.”
Megan Futrell, 29, and her 3-month-old son Case were killed when the powerful twister destroyed the convenience store on 4th St. and Telephone Rd. in Moore.
“The family wants everyone to know what a great wife, mother, daughter and sister Megan was,” family member David Dobson said.
Futrell ran into the store and into a walk in freezer as the tornado hit the city.
First responders found Futrell and her son buried under all the debris.
According to her family, Futrell was a teacher at Highland West.
Dobson said she lived for her students and her family.
“Megan loved her boys most of all, husband Cody, son Cannon, and son Case who past along with his mom,” Dobson said.
The family is asking for privacy during this very difficult time.
