Coal miner Josh Napper had a sick feeling something wasn't right at his job, so he put his thoughts on paper, to those he loved the most before heading back to work.
It would be his last communication with them.
"If anything happens to me, I will be looking down from heaven," his handwritten note read.
The 25-year-old Napper left it with his family in southeast Ohio, where he commuted to on weekends. Napper was among 25 people killed in an explosion at a West Virginia mine.
His mother, Pam Napper, didn't find out about the note until after he returned to work at the Upper Big Branch mine on Monday, the day of the explosion.
"I just knew that Josh in his heart knew that something was going to happen," Pam Napper said Friday.
