Dear Victoria and Soto Family, The holy season of Easter and Passover are upon us. I imagine that all of you are preparing for those special days. You are lovingly remembered every single day. Sincerely, Frances C. Uva
You can see my book dedicated to Victoria Soto. Her heroic history is a fresh reminder of the eternal fight between the good and the evil. Details in "Apocalypse Paradigm." See:
Today I wrapped a precious gift and was sent to heavan' s gate. A special delivery to the king of kings, please don't let it get there late.
Sent with a rose upon her chest and dressed her in her Sunday best.
Signed, sealed and delivered, I give her all to you; please put her in a robe and crown and a body all brand new.
We thank you Lord for this dear hero and we will hate to see her go;please put this rose bud within your garden so in heavan she will grow. Poem by Karen Bernice Duncan:my tribute to this amazing hero!
Victoria was a very beautiful woman. She was a blessing to the world. We need more people like her.
Dear Victoria and Soto Family, Remembering you in a special way on the fourteenth of this month. Sincerely, Frances C. Uva
I still think often of Victoria and her incredible sacrifice. She has moved on with that beautiful spirit.
peace and love to her family and friends.
Dear Victoria and the Soto Family, I imagine you are making valentine's with all those sweet children. How fortunate they are to have you as their teacher. Sincerely, Frances C. Uva
victoria wishing all the teachers a happy valentines day ,love jimmy
Let There Be Peace On Earth!!
The World Misses Your Passion and Advocacy for Kids More Than You Know!!!
Your Students will never forget who You Were and Are !!!
For God is not unrighteous so as to forget your work and the love you showed for his name by ministering and continuing to minister to the holy ones (Hebrews 6:10). Victoria will never be forgotten for all the work she did for her community and especially those encouraged and inspired in her care. May God continue to strengthen your family in these “times hard to deal with” (2Tim 3:1), especially without a beloved one such as Victoria Soto.

In Loving Memory of Victoria Soto
A year ago today your darling Victoria said good-bye
And you may still ask the question, "Why Lord, why"?
So prepare your hearts to celebrate the life which she lived
Let it be a celebration because she gave all that she had to give.
When she got to Heaven there stood Jesus waiting for her on Holy ground
The sacrifice she made for her children He knew was more than profound.
He knew that she treasured each one as a rare and precious gem
And it only befitting that she continue her journey with them.
He gave her a hug and smiled upon her glowing face
Filling her with happiness to be in that heavenly place.
Her children were waiting for her with the Yankees 'gone on before' from the Hall of Fame
And a big black lab wagging its tail and Roxie is her name.
As she looked off into the distance she saw a beautiful pink glow
As it got closer she realized it was a flock of pink flamingos.
So now it's time to give thanks to God for sharing Victoria with you
Knowing that the tears you shed are more than a few.
You're going to miss her with each and every day
The heart hurts so much that you think the hurt will never go away.
So believe with all your being that 'Father knows best'
Thank Him for the years that with her you were blest.
So get down upon your knees and in the most earnest prayer and say
"Thank you dear God, 'ere the time be so short for sending her my way."

Remembering beautiful Victoria and keeping her and the Soto family in my heart and in my prayers today and every day. Love always wins.
A la familia de Victoria
No puedo imaginar el dolor que llevan dentro por su perdida. Aprendi algo que les va a ayudar como me ayudo a mi al perder un ser querido. En Hechos 24:15 dice que habra una resurreccion. Asi que Victoria estara con ustedes en un futuro cercano nuevamente. El saber esto me a consolado muchisimo y pense que a ustedes le haria lo mismo y quise compartirlo con ustedes. Los acompano en sus sentimiento y que Dios los bendiga.Es un dia muy triste pero Dios siempre nos da las fuerzas para seguir adelante. Que Dios me los cuide.
Dear Soto Family and Victoria, Continue to teach the children for they will always need your love, wisdom and guidance. Special hugs to all of you on your first anniversary in Heaven. Sincerely, Frances C. Uva
God bless the family. You are all in our prayers.
May your family find peace in the knowledge that people still think of you and look at you as a hero in every sense of the word.
You are safe in the arms of Jesus

RIP Victoria . You are a true hero
‘Let the children come to me, and do not stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to persons like them.' Then Jesus takes the children in his arms, and blesses them. (Mt 19:13-15) Isn't it good to know that Jesus loves little children?
We must continue to cherish our little ones like Jesus before tragedy takes them away.
god bless the soto family.
My heart continues to go out to all of you who knew and loved this very special young lady. Her life , her sacrifice are not forgotten. Until we are all where she is, peace in this very limited world.

Dedicated to the Victoria Soto family. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me by Your generous Spirit. Then I will teach trangressors Your ways, and sinners shall be converted to You. Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, the God of my salvation, and my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth Your praise. Psalm 51: 12-15. May God's will be done. Carl David-Sabo, Emerald Records.

May God comfort and bless your grieving hearts in this time of deep sorrow.
This is a video tribute I made for the families, victims, the community of Newtown, and all who were impacted by this senseless tragedy. I'm at a loss for words and felt that this was the only way that I could fully express myself. My heart is particularly heavy this Christmas Eve and I ache for each of these beautiful children, the teachers and faculty who lost their lives trying to protect them, and their families for not being able to spend it together this year. Rest in Peace Victoria and may God bless all of you.
I am brought to tears every time I read or hear about the bravery of this beautiful angel. I am still having a hard time processing all of this. I am so glad that during a time of such horrible tragedy that she is able to remind us that there is such good in people. We will never forget!
The word hero does not do her justice. To her parents I would say "What a fine person you have raised to use herself as a shield to protect her kids" We all Love you Victoria and thankyou for what you have done. Hero is such a small word beside you. Somewhere you are smiling and playing with your kids. BELIEVE
We will be praying in behalf of your dear family.
she try to stop the maddnes from the children she is a hero in everyone eyes.
May God comfort you and give you peace. Psalm 46:1; Psalm 147:3

To the family of Victoria: What a beautiful little girl May you rest in peace. May God Bless in ours thoughts and prayers.
To the Soto Family,
I have no doubt she is one of God's most cherished angels. May God comfort you as the rest of us cannot. May we celebrate her beautiful life forever. She inspired me to write this poem to honor her:
Hero Unmasked (For Victoria Soto)
Her smiling photo posted --
she resonates –
a final note at
the end of a song;
a hushed world
listens in vain for more,
but silence hangs empty
as the stockings of the lost.
Children often aspire heroic --
Ever don the cape and mask
Not about this…
this dark December day,
when arms outstretched like wings,
she did the real thing:
shielded her angels
without cape and mask,
without bulletproof clothes,
without thinking --
C2012 Susan Desrocher
Rest in Peace Victoria <3

Your daughter Vicki was a beautiful loving, angel who loved kids so much and was a special soul. Not many people in life are this selfless. In her short life, it seems she lived more and gave more than most people would if their life should they live till old age. May she rest in ipeace and may your family be comforted in knowing her and having the special times together in so short of her life.
RIP young angel. You were taken too soon in life, and I pray that God will watch over your family to give them comfort during this time of sorrow.

May god bless you at this time of sorrow.My thoughts and prayers are with you .R.I.P.Victoria
To the Soto family. We are heartbroken over the loss of your daughter and sister. We too have a beautiful 27 old kindergarten teacher. She even resembles your Vicki. She refers to her students as "her kids" and we have no doubt she would react the way your brave daughter did. We know it is little comfort now, but you certainly raised a remarkable young woman. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Life is so short in the space of time. Your daughter has given the world more in her 27 years on earth than most people will give if they lived to be 100.
I know your sorrow is infinite. But please take joy in what this wonderful person did while she was on our earth. I believe in God and I believe you will see your daughter again. I know our Good Lord is enjoying her company as I write.
God Bless who grieve and who have lost a gift from heaven.
May you rest in peace. Thank you for being a hero to those children. My heart goes out to your family & friends. I truly am sorry...
You were a hero on Earth and you are a hero in Heaven. Rest in Peace.
Unlike a candle's flame, Victoria Soto's light will never go out!! Peace and blessing to her loved ones.
My deepest condolences to the Soto family. You have a beautiful Angel in heaven watching down on you and caring for her "kids" in heaven. Praying for comfort and peace for you all.
Rest in Peace Victoria Soto. You truly are a hero. Now you can teach those precious angels in Heaven and be safe in the arms of God. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Our sincerest condolences

What an amazing woman Victoria was. She loved her kids and there is no other word to better describe her than HERO. May she rest in peace.
This story struck me for to me she is a genuine heroine. I never have met her though I did cry for her selfless love and devotion to her little ones. I too am a die-hard Yankees fan and I wish I had met her under different circumstances. She now is an Angel soaring to new heights in God's kingdom. Bradley, Rhinebeck, New York
I cannot tell you how sorry I am for the loss of Victoria. But know that she lives in each of your hearts forever. Let her memories bring you comfort and know that you are kept in prayers around the world.
I will remember your face forever. Thank you for your selfless love. You elevate and enrich us all. To your parents: you taught your daughter well. She will live forever in our hearts.
Your daughter was so very special. Her love for the students she served was so commendable. My prayers are with you and your family to have strenght through this most difficult time.
Although I did not know Victoria, it is clear through the new stories and first hand accounts that she is truly a hero. May she rest in peace in Heaven. May her family find solace in her memory and heroic nature.
RIP MAY GOD BLESS U ALL U ALL R IN MY PRAYERS AMEN

To family and friends of Victoria,
Anguished Hearts Don't Despair
A parent's worst nightmare
became your reality this day.
Feelings of unimaginable despair;
so many unanswered questions …
Why my child?
Did God need another angel?
If so, how unloving it would be of him
to take our cherished one, our joy!
So many unfulfilled dreams,
plans for the future; tomorrows gone.
Lives changed forever by the loss
of one so dear, so tender, so young.
Death leaves such emptiness of heart,
regrets of not giving that last hug;
feeling the warmth and tenderness of a kiss;
saying: “I love you” just one more time!
Have hope! He has promised an end to such sadness.
He hears the prayers of the brokenhearted one.
He will actually swallow up death forever,
And He will certainly wipe the tears from all faces!
Memories cherished and faith in a better future,
Will help one cope with the pain of today.
A promised paradise when all will be reunited
with dear, loved ones. Life without end at last!

There is no greater love than this, one who lays down their life for another. John 15:13. Vicki, though I never had the pleasure to meet you, like yourself, I was raised in a small town, Hicksville, Ohio, and reading about you we had much in common...love for education and children. I wish I could of met you while you were in this world. But until I have the honor to meet you in heaven please pray that I use the gifts and talents given to me to benefit others...and bring joy to angels like you. Carl David-Sabo, Recording Artist, Emerald Records.
The greatest gift is to lay down one's life for a friend, as Victoria did for her defenseless little students. She is surely with God now. May He comfort you in this time of sadness.

It is said that you wanted to be a teacher ever since you were a little girl. Well, in that case I definitely believe you had a "calling" because there would have been more children lost if it wasn't for your quick thinking. You were meant to be a teacher, at that school, on that day. You were your "kids" Guardian Angel. And you will continue in spirit. I'm all the way in Texas. We've never met but your name will be forever burned in my brain. God Bless You. Be at peace. Your family, friends and "kids" will see you again. And maybe we'll meet too.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family. May God give you the strength and comfort.
We need more people in the world like her. She saved lives and gave up her own...That sounds familiar to me, knowing that Jesus did the same. I will never forget you. I will continue to pray for your family.
My heart is heavy and we greive for you and with you for the loss of your beautiful loving girl. They are still our babies no matter what. Im so sorry you are going through this grief.

She is a angel now watching over your family and waiting until you too can join her in Heaven. May God bless your family and wrap his loving arms around you in this difficult time!!
Words alone can not erase the pain of the loss your family has suffered. But know in your heart that in life she was what she wanted to be, A Teacher. She gave Her life for her Children that fateful morning, something not all teachers can honestly say they could do. In Death, She is now without pain in Heaven. Yet, She is still with the children that needed her there also. As the days pass, I hope your family can find peace in the knowledge of knowing that she IS a True Hero That Will Not Be Forgotten!

We bereaved are not alone.
We belong to the largest company in all the world, the company of those who have known suffering.
When it seems that our sorrow is too great to be borne, let us think of the great family of the heavy hearted into which our grief has given us entrance, and inevitably, we will feel about us their arms, their sympathy, their understanding.
Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world.
So long as you can sweeten another's pain, life is not in vain.
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time.
Rest in peace. You are a hero. May God bless you.
My deepest condolences to the Soto family. I am so very sorry for your loss. Victoria's last act was one of selflessness and heroism that saved the lives of kids who meant the world to her. I hope that in the days ahead, knowing that she died a hero will be a source of comfort to all of you. They say that you can tell a lot about the way the person lived their life by the way people respond when they pass away. From the looks of it, she lived an amazing life and touched so many people along the way! My thoughts and prayers are with all of you!
With your beautiful, bright smile, you have led a group of Adoring Angels through the Gates of Heaven. Thank you for being such a Loving and Caring Teacher. May God rest your soul. May your Family find lasting peace soon.

As a fellow educator I salute Vicki Soto as a true hero in our profession. She ignited pride in the job I do daily and put the menial complaints I used to have to rest permanently. As a result I will honor her by loving all my students and making it a point to teach them with life and enthusiasm as she did. RIP Vicki Soto
I believe that the entire staff of Sandy Hook Elementary are heroes, but Vicki's story touched me most of all. I am a 27 year old teacher, and I too refer to my students as "my kids" all the time. There are no words that can match your grief, but please know what a hero and inspiration she is to teachers like me all around the country. She will live on through those that she has touched and inspired. I'm so sorry for your incredible loss.
Please accept our deepest and most sincere condolences on the loss of your beloved daughter, sister, niece. Her bravery is incredible to fathom, her dedication to the care and protection of 'her kids' is awe-inspiring. Bless this girl. May your memories of her sustain you through this terrible time.
Victoria was a true hero. May she rest in the sweetest peace and may her family find comfort in her memories during this difficult time and the days ahead. Victoria has inspired me to me the best teacher I can be to my beautiful kindergarteners. God bless her and her family.
Peace and love sent to you each and every day.
I'm so sorry for the loss of your beautiful daughter. Please know I am praying for each and everyone that was tragically taken away so soon. May God comfort you now and in the days ahead.
You are an angel taking care of those babies in heaven! I never knew you but you are my hero! ~Jen Gogolen

WITH EVERYTHING THAT IS SOOOO WRONG IN THIS WORLD, YOU VICTORIA REMIND US THAT THERE IS STILL GOOD!! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SACRAFICE!! YOU ARE A TRUE HERO!!! YOU HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER
Shots fired...close to your room..instantly you know Evil is coming at you and your kids...quick thinking ..hide the kids...what to do now...hide ...or confront Evil...Victoria made the decision that the kids best chance was to face Evil alone....think about that split second decision....I believe she knew her fate when she made that decision...but did it to protect her kids...I hope her family heals quickly knowing what she did, sacrificing her life for her students.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
As the Lord welcomes this beautiful soul into his Kingdom of heaven we pray that her family and friends will find comfort in knowing that her love & passion for her children saved so many lives. God Bless you Victoria and God Bless you friends and family.
I am so very sorry about the loss of your daughter. Words of this earth cannot cover the joy God must have felt to receive her heroic soul into His arms. Who of us would have such courage to give the ultimate gift for the sweet babies she saved, to live their lives and reach their goals in life. I hope these children will never ever forget what she has done for them. You have reason to be so very proud. I know this does not cover the pain you are feeling now,but may the Lord wrap His healing arms around the heart of each family member and may your hearts heal quickly. What a beautiful young lady she was.
Our prayers for comfort and peace for the entire family. Sorry for your loss.
May you rest in everlasting peace with our Lord ^j^
There are Saints here on Earth and with the Lord God Almighty. Victoria was a Saint here on Earth when she provided comfort, love and protection to those children entrusted in her care during their journey home to our Heavenly Father.

Thus, she too surrounds us and continues to be a Saint watching over her family, friends, loved ones and all God's children here on Earth. To her family and friends, May God Comfort and Bless You Always.

It's hard to believe when this happens to someone you know, someone you grew up with, someone you went to church with. It's been many years since the last time I saw you, it may be many more before I see you again, but I won't forget you.
So, so sorry for the loss of your beautiful daughter. She was amazingly brave and wonderfully compassionate and certainly a hero.
I picture all 20 little angels sitting on a bench, some on the lap of our Lord and our Lord hugging every one of them and Victoria in the middle of them. No more anguish and pain. Pray for us Victoria. Our true hero

I cannot find words strong enough to praise Victoria for her tremendous act of courage for her beloved students of Sandy Hook Elementary. I could not think of a more beautiful, pure, and brave head angel to lead 20 of our nation's most cherished angels to our Heavenly Kingdom, where we know you will wait for those of us left behind. I truly believe that this year, you will experience the most beautiful and unimaginable Christmas celebration you have ever experienced, for we know you are experiencing it with our beloved Jesus Christ Himself. Sleep in Heavenly peace, Victoria.

Carlee, I just saw the picture of you when you got the devastating news about your sister. My heart broke for you and all of the family and friends of everyone that will be forever changed by this. May God comfort and carry you through!
Ms. Victoria Soto was the guardian angel for so many of the kids in her classroom. Shielding the kids from bullets using her own body and life is the true sign of a martyr. I am sure she is watching over her kids and family from heaven sitting among the saints and angels. We didn't know Vicki, but you are a hero to my family and my kids. Pray for all of us.
What a beautiful soul inside and out. I know that you must be very proud of her bravery. I am so very sorry that this happened. My father was killed in a terrorist attack in 1979 33 years ago to the date of Victoria's passing. It really hit me in the deepest part of my heart. May God keep you all strong and know that you will see her again. God bless!
I am so sorry. Vicki is so happy and so cheerful, and she loved her school children. I cannot imagine your pain. You will always be in my prayers.
I remember Vicky when she was in first grade. I worked in the elementary school she attended in the lunchroom. She was a very sweet litle girl, and now a beautiful angel. Im so very sorry for your loss.....
Grief can be so hard during the holidays, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one this holiday season.
Victoria is truly an Angel and a Hero. I am so for your loss.Rest assured, she is in heaven, with all the other Angels and God.
To the Soto family,Please keep your eyes on the sky and folow your bright star,Vicky,she will shine forever. May you recieve comfor knowing that she gave the most valuable gift for her student,her life. Que Dios los bendiga en su dolorm

My heart aches for your family. As a grandmother I can not imagine burying one of my sons or their children. I am proud to say I have 2 teachers in the family and they both always say their children are their angles. Teachers are very special and Victoria gave the ultimate sacrifice. She will be in our prayers till I am called to heaven to meet her.May God wrap his arms around your family to help you thru this senseless tradgey.
My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Your daughter/granddaughter/sister/niece was a true hero and will never be forgotten.

May God give your daughter eternal light for all you have done. Amen
god bless, peace be with you.
I believe that God has a plan for all of us and He chose your loved one to protect the helpless children from the travesty occurring on December 14th in Sandy Hook, Connecticut. God will give you peace in your heart and you will have many good memories of Victoria. She was a special person and was appointed the childrens' guardian Angel on earth. She's now an angel in Heaven.
In a time when youth and adults alike choose heroes and roll models from athletes and performers, Victoria your selflessness shown in splendor. A true hero the likes of which are generally reserved for those in the military who through heroic actions give their lives to save others. All people on the planet could only hope to ever live up to your legacy. May the good lord bless your family in this time of great sadness and comfort them in knowing that you are now an angel protecting and watching over us all.
Prayers go out to the entire Soto family. May God wrap his loving arms around your family and comfort you as you gather to say goodbye to your precious daughter,granddaughter, sister, cousin, and friend. She is truly a HERO in every aspect of the word. She chose to protect her students instead of herself. Just remember, she will be waiting at the gates of that marvelous place we all call heaven to greet you when you are finally reunited. America grieves for your daughter today as we have lost an amazing HERO.
This lady is the TRUE definition of a HERO.. Sacraficed her life for the lives of her students. May God keep you safe from ALL EVIL now and forever.. RIP
You have touched our hearts. My daughter is an eighth grade teacher and I pray she will carry on your dedication and devotion to all of her students. May God bless you and your family.
God has welcomed Vicki in to his house, where she receives only love and peace. Our family sends their deepest sympathies and prays for your family during this time.
We pray for your family as you mourn. Such a lovely young lady, so brave in trying to shield the children. We ask God's comfort and peace to be yours.
No words will ever begin to describe my gratitude towards our very own hometown hero.....Ms.Soto you are truly an amazing woman and a special angel.....I know that GOD will take care of you....May you forever rest peacefully in his arms......God Bless & Praying That He Comforts Her Family
I looked up last night trying to find you and I noticed a new bright star and it was smiling down at us I feel it was you,Joseph Mason

I know without a shadow of doubt that Ms. Soto is resting in the arms of the Lord. I can truly hear the Lord say to Ms. Soto well done for her life here on earth. To the parents of this beautiful woman, I sat where you both are sitting at now. It truly hurts so bad to have to bury your own child. I have been there eighteen years ago. I would like to ensure you that the Lord will always comfort your broken and aching and hurting heart. I am truthfully praying for each & everyone of you all in the precious name of Jesus Christ. God bless each & everyone....Love, Bernadette McCall

I too am a teacher. I understand the passion Victoria had for her students. But I ask myself, would I have the courage she did if faced with the same situation. I would like to think that I would, but Victoria did without hesitation and she is a hero and will always be known as one and the children that survived because of her are part of her legacy that will continue to shine forever.
Such a beautiful soul - to give her life willingly for ones so small she loved so much. Our hearts are grieved with you as you suffer your loss. May the loving arms of the Father give you peace and hope and courage to face the weeks and months ahead. Our prayers are with you all.
God Bless Victoria and the Soto family. She didn't think of herself that day and protected so many young children. They were blessed to have her with them at that moment. May your grief be lessened with time.

As an educator, I salute you! As a human, I salute you! As an example of unselfish, unconditional love, I salute you! The bible reminds us "Greater love hath no man than he lay down his life for a friend." Although I never met Victoria, I can only imagine the person that she was in and out of the classroom. I challenge everyone to look at her as an example of genuine love for others. I am certain that God has a special crown in store for Victoria and a special mansion prepared for her. God bless the family and everyone who was fortunate to be touched by her life!
Our school, Sts. Leo-Seton Catholic, in Lafayette, Louisiana, is remembering all the loved ones lost in the recent tragedy. Each of us has a special name to remember in prayer. As a teacher, I am proud to remember Victoria not only now but int he future. She is surely at peace. I wish the same for her loved ones after this difficult time of grieving.
RIP. You are an inspiration to us all. Thank you for being who you are. You will always be remembered as a hero.
