Danny Parmertor was one of three students who passed away as a result of Monday's shooting at Chardon High School in Ohio.

Danny Parmertor's parents want their son to be remembered as "a funny, loveable kid who would help you with anything."

The 16-year-old boy, one of three Parmertor children, lost his life along with two other innocent victims when T.J. Lane allegedly opened fire on Monday at Ohio's Chardon High School.

"I have to think about going to a funeral home, picking out a casket. What is that, picking out a casket for your son? We're supposed to go and pick out colleges and supposed to go visit Ohio State next month. I'm mad now. I'm mad," Dina Parmertor told CBS News on Tuesday.

The mother, a nurse, was driving home from a late shift when she turned on the radio and heard the news. She described a "sick feeling" in her stomach and feared for her son's safety. She tried her son's cell phone but there was no answer.

"Danny, it's Mom, call me back," the mother described her voicemail as she held back tears, according to CBS.

The boy's father, Bob Parmertor, told the network that he knows that "life will never be the same."

"I will get better, but right now, I'll never be, there will always be something missing," he said.

The accused shooter, Thomas "T.J." Lane, 17, reportedly opened fire around 7:30 a.m. At the time, Parmertor and several friends were seated at a cafeteria table waiting for a bus to take them to a vocational school for a Cisco computer network course, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
