Junior Seau Sent 'I Love You' Texts To Family Members Day Before Death

More details surrounding Junior Seau's apparent suicide Wednesday afternoon continue to pour in. The latest comes from the San Diego Union-Tribune, which reports that Seau contacted family members, including his ex-wife and their three children together, via text messages sent Tuesday night. From the Union-Tribune:

Seau's ex-wife, Gina Seau, of Fairbanks Ranch, said that on Tuesday he texted her, and each of their three children, separate messages: "I love you."

"We're all in shock," she said. "We're beyond sad and beyond shocked. The kids and I are just huddled together at home. There is no way to make sense of this."

Other family members have spoken publicly since the news of Seau's death was initially reported. Seau's mother Luisa Seau sobbed in front of reporters at the scene.

"I don't understand, I don't know anything," his mother said. "I'm shocked. I appreciate everyone, show your love to my son."

Seau's sister, Annette, asked for privacy as the family grieves, saying, "My brother was a loving brother and a caring citizen."
