Let the memory of Victoria be with us forever

For those of you who knew Victoria, please take a moment and share your fondest memory, photo and/or video.  There are several reasons for the creation of this page. Like all of you Greg and I loved Victoria so very very much and we are hurting terribly right now, but like Greg  said, our lives will never be the same now that she is gone, but will always be better for having her in it.  All of us can say that. V must be shared with the rest of the world.  He life, her energy her soul are way to large for just those of us who knew her personally.  That is something that is reflective of her life and her work. V wanted to make a difference in the world, and she did. Like her memory her vision for the world must live on and it is up to us to continue where she left off.  So to Victoria, thank you for opening my eyes to the world around me.  I am forever changed. You may no longer be here in body, but your spirit and vision will live on in my life and in the lives of everyone who knew you. Most of all your spirit and vision will live on in the lives of others that never met you, but because of your work they are forever changed.  Until we meet again my Queen, I love you, your devoted "Little Flower", Tony

"Victoria,  Thank you for being such an AMAZING person and mentor.I never had the chance to let you know how much it meant to me that you were able to take time out of your busy travels and visit me wh en I lived in Malaysia. Somehow I think you knew that I needed someone to just check on me and to see a familiar face because I was a little home sick. I think of all chats that was probably the best! Thank you for all you taught me and for being a blessing in my life. I had to give myself time to write this because I could never get past a few words without shedding a tear and I know you would want me smiling :)"

"My heart is saddened to know that I will not see her wonderful smile or experience her gentle spirit at future meetings and gatherings.
The loss of Victoria causes me to shed tears for a life that left us too soon and affected so many of us. But now she has started a new incredible journey in which her new life will never end, the tears are wiped away  and her smile is everlasting. I miss you my sister."

"There's a huge hole in my heart and I will never ever forget the times we've spent hanging out at 9C or our amazing music talks, or even our short walks home so I was sure you got home safe. I love you with all of my heart and I just won't ever be the same without my dear friend. Our friendship was short but very beautifully sweet. I love you !"

This tribute was added by Dionne Brown on 2nd March 2014

"Words can not express the sadness and loss I feel..... my dear cousin I am still in shock and I have to continue to process what has happened.  I hold memories of our childhood and most present in my heart. I always admired the drive you had to be successful in life and your career.  If I never said it I am proud of you and I love you! Indeed God had a bigger plan for your life and HE needed you more. I find comfort in knowing that. Your cousin Dionne"

You touched the lives of so many people and will forever be remembered by those who had the pleasure (if not luck) of meeting you. Today I feel blessed for the years we had you in our lives. Thank you and I look forward to the day we will be celebrating our eternal lives together."

"Tori changed out lives. We grew to love and respect each other. She was strong, powerful and loving. We shared important and impactful moments together...and then she was gone. I will hold the memories forever."

This tribute was added by Toi Sampson on 2nd March 2014

"From the moment I met Tori, I loved her. Her smile was infectious and her spirit kind. We worked at MBNA in Atlanta and because of the tremendous amount of time we spent together, we all became like family. I admired Tori's drive, passion, commitment to excellence and sense of style. For those who know Tori know of her love of shoes- especially high heels. I remember being with Tori one day -it was a casual day. Everyone had on sweats or jeans and sneakers. Not Tori. She had on jeeans alright, but was accessorized and had on the cutest high heeled shoes. I went over to her and said "Tori, girl, why do you have on heels today?" She smiled and said, "You know I have a short complex, I have to wear my heels." I thought that so funny. She always wanted to be taller. To me, however, she was a giant because she had such a huge personality and positive outlook on life. What a wonderful soul and what a glorious life she led. Let us take the example of this "petite powerhouse" and live our lives to the fullest and in the manner which God expects us to. I will always miss you Tori. Until we see each other again... Love Toi"

"From the first day Aunt Linda introduced Tory to me I knew I had meant a special young women ...... young, vibrant and full of all life had to
offer.  I felt like I had adopted a daughter. What a lose in this universe
but God's kingdom is greater and so she is home living all the glory she deserves.

Drinks on the deck, numerous lunches and dinners, hanging out at 9C, tennis in the park and my favorite days were when we played dress up in ur closet.

"My heart is heavy, I keep checking back to your page because it just seems so unreal and I so desperately want to see a post from you.  They say God only takes home the best first, those who have done all they were to do here on earth and fulfilled their journey and their mission.  I can see, reflecting on your life how you did just that.  So many memories I will hold and cherish.  Rest little flower - it's your time to live in eternal peace and joy in heaven while we miss you here.  Thank you for helping me bring out my inner diva while singing way off key in karaoke! lol   Oh Tori -  Miss Tori - May you sing forever with the angels in all of God's glory!  Sleep in heavenly peace, and be there with bells on welcoming me when it's my turn to join you! xx"

"Victoria you just can't imagine how much your friendship, your love  your infectious smile and personality meant to me and to so many,many people. I loved you way before I met you just by the way Tony and Greg always talked about their Queen. And then the moment I met you you had my heart. And we had some fun times when we got together.  You left us way to soon that is for sure, but one thing for sure your memory will live on for ever. I hope you know just how much your life has changed so many people and just how very much we loved you.
