A teacher killed when a gunman opened fire inside of a Texas high school, killing 10 people, left one last note for her family.

Cynthia Tisdale was among those killed Friday after Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, allegedly entered the Santa Fe High School with a shotgun and .38 revolver and opened fire during a first-period art class.

“Had to go meet teacher. I love you. Hope you feel better today. Love mom, Left you breakfast,” the note read.  

Tisdale’s brother-in-law, John Tisdale, posted a picture of the note to Facebook.

He said Tisdale wrote it before she left for school on Friday morning. They have since framed the last memento.

“We never know when our death will come,” Tisdale also wrote on Facebook. “Cynthia planned on one day retiring and being a full-time grandmother. It will never happen."

Other victims included: Pakistani exchange student Sabika Sheik, substitute teacher Ann Perkins, Angelique Ramirez, Shana Fisher,16, Kim Vaughn, Chris Stone, 15-year-old Christian Garcia, 17-year-old Jared Conard Black, 15-year-old Kyle McLeod.

Ten others were also injured in the shooting.
