Taylor Thyfault was hit and killed during a high-speed chase in May 2015. Since then, his mother has been texting his old phone as a way to deal with her grief. She never expected a text back. ********************************** Check out more Humankind stories: Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/1IrNzUN Like us on Facebook: http://bit.ly/fbhkvids Get Humankind in your inbox: https://usat.ly/2GxQTBp Follow us on Instagram: http://bit.ly/1YqcbBt ************************************************************ As a teenager, Taylor Thyfault was exceptional. His ambition and passion led him to make a list of 25 future goals when he was in high school. Those goals were: -Join the Army and be the best that I can be -Go bungee jumping -Get married -Start a family -Buy an English Bull Dog and name him Diesel -Swim with sharks -Visit Hawaii -Visit the tribe I am from (Saquangue Lakota Oyate) -Save a life -Coach a Lacrosse team -Graduate high school -Get a masters part time in the military -Get a job -Buy my own truck -Wrestle an alligator -Meet the 'Jackass' crew -Buy my Quad -Play football for a minor league -Go cliff diving -Volunteer in the community -Go to Alaska -Be there for all of the people that have been there for me -Never be arrested -Go to Oktoberfest in Germany -Be the best man, husband, son, soldier, and friend as ... possible As apparent, Thyfault didn't dream about becoming rich or buying a mansion. Thyfault's mom, Carole Adler, knew about those dreams, and she knew he was capable of accomplishing them. They were extremely close. For more of the story, click here: http://usat.ly/1X3IsmF

I still call my mom phone number and no answer

I wonder why someone would thumb down this great story. You could just feel that mom's love for her son.
I know how she feels my parents fell of a cliff while taking a selfie together, I still text them. I breaks my heart to know that my parents are dead and I can’t do anything about it..

I do this with my deceased great aunt but I don’t get a response.

My sister died on May 2016. I texted her and facebooked her a few times. A few months ago I was having such a horrible horrible night crying into my bed, calling out her name. 39 years old dying from cancer in two years. I sent her a text telling her how much I loved her and that I was sorry for all the bad things I did and just wanted to have her reply. I begged... pleaded. I... got a reply. She texted and I quote 'I love you too. You doing right? You better be doing right. I know you are. You have no idea how much it hurts to know how much grief I can feel from you... this is Nicki. I have the same first name of your sister. I don't want you to stop texting me, Chelsea. Let me know how you're doing every now and then? God Bless you. I know I'm not your sister. But I can be for you here if you need it. Love you.' I can't tell you how much this woman means to me. Such a beautiful person. Such a wonderful soul. Thank-you. Thank-you so much.

My mother died 2 years back of a massive heart attack out of the blue she was only in her early 50s it was hard she was my best friend actually my only friend.A couple of months after she died I was watching tv and thumbing around in my phone I wasn’t even thinking of her at this moment it was early in morning I hadn’t been up long etc I heard her call out to me through the tv I know I’m going to hear omg yea right your nuts believe me I thought I was for a couple of mins.I just couldn’t understand why I heard that or how so I told myself I was nuts and went back to doing what I was but I knew that was my mom it was her voice clear as day and this is true soon as I went back to doing what I was doing she calls out to me again even louder I’m telling you that was my mother it was like she was right there you could tell by the tone way she said my name again like why aren’t you listening to me ??I knew I wasn’t nuts then I know what I heard I remember it scared me so bad I jumped up and ran outside crying my eyes out had to call my dad I was so scared.To this day I’ve regretted doing that I guess I couldn’t deny what I heard second time I wasn’t expecting that I’ve begged her to do it again I told her I was sorry and just scared but I wouldn’t be again.But she hasn’t done it again.So believe me they can send messages or signals I can promise any of you it’s true!

The love of a mother will never settle with losing a child, It's impossible. I've seen mother's throw themselves on lowering caskets and it's heartbreaking. Sometimes a desperate way of coping is the most successful.

he probably died because you would not stop texting him. that is what probably got him killed in the first place, and now that he is dead you will not let him rest, and you still are continuing to text him. dumbitch

See, something ain't adding up here, cheif. That cant just be a coincidence that the sergeant's new number was Taylor's old number. I don't necessarily believe in "God," but I do believe in a higher power. Shit like that just don't happen on its own.

Clickbait answer: Sgt. Kelsey of the police texted back and got a new phone with her son's number. He asks if she wants him to change his number. She says keep it.

The chances of an officer in the same department getting the same number of a deceased fellow officer are probably about 1/200,000,000 suspicious

Coming from a son myself. Never make a child your bestfriend. It ruins the relationship you have as a mother/father.
