It was the most heartwrenching moment of her life when she received that final text from her murdered son, reading, "I love you." Now, Mina Justice had to face her son's lifeless body one last time to say goodbye, but it proved to be too much for her to handle.

Mina's son, Eddie, was one of the 49 murdered in the worst mass shooting recorded in US history at gay nightclub Pure in Orlando.

According to the Daily Mail, during Eddie's open casket funeral, the devastated mother collapsed, but was caught before hitting the ground by her relatives, who called 911. She was then strapped to a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance.

Her son, Eddie, was only present in the club for a few minutes before the shooter Omar Mateen entered the club, spraying bullets.

The mother and son had a brief text conversation before he was killed with the first text reading, "Mommy I love you. In the club they shooting."

After Mina responded with, "U ok," Eddie wrote back, saying, "trapp (sic) in bathroom."

"Call them mom," he continued. "Now. He's coming. I'm gonna die."

The mother stood outside the club that night, hoping to hear that her son had survived, but she received the news the following day that he had passed.
