Case Futrell, 4 months, died in the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma on May 20, along with his mother, Megan Futrell.

---

Futrell had picked up young Case from a babysitter as the storm a pproached Moore. She eventually took shelter in a nearby convenience store at the suggestion of her husband, according to a relative.

Both died when the EF5 tornado destroyed the building as the two tried to ride out the storm in the store's walk-in freezer.

Futrell was a doting mother, active in the Little League association where another son played, her cousin, Amy Pulliam, told The Oklahoman.

"She was my sister I never had," Pulliam said. "It's hard, it's hard, it's hard. But there's nothing you can do now."

Futrell's husband, Cody, who told his wife to seek shelter inside the store, was overcome with grief, Pulliam said.

"As soon as the tornado went over he just took off running," she said. "When he made it as far as Little River Park he saw there was nothing" left of the store.
