Emily Horwath took to Instagram to share the voicemail from her boyfriend Callum Robinson, 33, with the caption “Will be playing this on repeat.” In the recording, Callum’s upbeat voice says: “Happy Tuesday, good morning! It’s 11:11 and I’m just thinking about you. Just wanted to drop you a quick message and say, hello baby, hope you’re having a phenomenal start to your day. I’m sensing a big grin on your face for some reason today. I hope you’re full of positivity and smiles. Cheers baby, miss you.”

The message is a poignant reminder of the light Callum brought to Horwath’s life before the senseless tragedy that stole him from her. “You are one of one,” she wrote in another heartbroken Instagram post with a photo of the couple beaming at a wedding. “I will love you forever.”

Callum, his brother Jake Robinson, 30, and their 30-year-old American friend Jack Carter Rhoad were camping and surfing at a remote beach in Baja California, Mexico when they went missing on April 27th. After an agonizing week-long search by their frantic families, their bodies were discovered in a nearby well, each with a gunshot wound to the head.

Mexican authorities believe the three were killed in a bungled robbery attempt, alleging local suspects tried to steal the tires and parts off the group’s truck when the surfers confronted them. Three people have been arrested so far on suspicion of murder as well as drug possession charges.

In the aftermath, Callum and Jake’s devastated parents Martin and Debra Robinson traveled from their home in Perth, Australia to the U.S. to bring their sons’ remains back. “Our hearts are broken and the world has become a darker place for us,” Debra said. “They were young men enjoying their passion of surfing together.”

She paid tribute to Callum’s “larger-than-life character” as he pursued his lacrosse dreams living in San Diego with Horwath. Of Jake, she said: “His passion was surfing and it was no coincidence that many of his hospitals that he worked in were close to surfing beaches.”

Loved ones have raised over $430,000 through a GoFundMe to support the Robinson family in the wake of this unimaginable loss. While the anguish is still raw, they hope others will “live bigger, shine brighter and love harder” in Callum and Jake’s memories.

No amount of money can dull the ache Horwath feels as she replays Callum’s final words to her. “I’d give anything for one more koala hug,” she wrote with a photo of him embracing her. “Praying God has wrapped you in His arms. I miss you.”
