ARDMORE, Okla. (KTEN) — The home of Chris and Miranda Litton was destroyed by the EF-4 tornado that ripped Marietta, Lake Murray and Dickson Saturday evening.

Now, just like many families in south central Oklahoma, they're reflecting on memories in the ruins with sights set on the future.

The Littons and Miranda's son, Jayden, spent Saturday night in Davis, hoping to catch a glimpse of a twister from afar... not expecting they'd come back to their home and find nothing.

The entire family is still in shock, sifting through their belongings on a daily basis as they contemplate what to do next.

"My son was here; they were down in the cellar," Miranda Litton recalled. "I was calling him; I was cussing him out, because he did not want to go, and I told him, I said, 'It's on the ground!' There for a while they lost power, and I didn't know."

"You got to stay strong. Me being the only one employed is... I feel like I got a lot on my shoulders right now," Chris Litton said. "That might be why I'm not breaking down yet and trying to keep it together. I have a lot to do."

A sonogram of Jayden was blown all the way to Byng, Oklahoma. It was returned to the family through the power of social media and the efforts of Jarrod Presley.

Jayden, now a fourth grader at Dickson Public Schools, is managing the loss of his home alongside his parents.

"Some old photos that Mom lost... we lost a kitten, I'm pretty sure," he said. "I liked that kitten. It's probably... we haven't found that kitten yet. Other stuff like old games I've played, old movies... it's not here no more.

But some belongings — like a family memory jar — never left the property.

"5/9/2016... saw my first tornado with Chris, just north and east of Sulphur; it was a blast," said Miranda Litton. "Then we came home and he made me chicken and dumplings. We had a fight and took pictures."
