I was privileged to know Zada when she was editor-in-chief of the Tucson High newspaper. I remember her fondly as a bright, friendly, and energetic person who always found time to help me learn the ropes as a "cub" reporter. Several years later, I also became acquainted with her lovely family and came to understand from whence Zada's inner beauty sprang. This world is a better place for having had Zada in it.

Zada Edgar-Soto was a friend and an amazing advocate and attorney. My heart goes out to her children and family. I worked with Zada and her husband Ernesto fresh out of college. I learned so much from them, and will be forever grateful for their mentoring and friendship...

I just got back from a long trip overseas and am so very saddenend about Zada's untimely passing.She helped some of my friends with their immigration cases and I was involved with that over the last 5 years.She was such a competent and brilliant lawyer and her clarity and compassion were extraordinary.This is a terrible loss for our community.I know my friends have been praying for her and will continue to do so.
My deepest sympathy goes to all of her family and friends.I hope you get some comfort from knowing how important her work was,how many lives she has touched and what a remarkable role model she will remain.
Zada and I had started to become friends over tea and talks about life,I will miss her very much.What a true humanitarian and generous soul!
With all my heart me very best to you,Zada!

I met Ms. Soto only a year ago, when I did some work to help one of her clients with an immigration case. She was gracious, passionate and so dedicated. I was looking forward to working together in the future. So very sad to hear of this tragedy! Blessings to all of her family.

Zada and I had the privilege of serving on the Tucson Girls Chorus Board of Directors together. What a joy to work and become friends with such an amazing, accomplished and giving woman! We reconnected just a few months ago, meeting for breakfast and sharing about our daughters. My heart goes out to you, Sabrina - may God comfort and console you and remind you that your Mom will always be a part of you and those special memories you will cherish.

Dr Edgar - I am so sorry for your loss. May God grant you and your family peace and comfort. I remember you speaking of your daughter often. I also think of you often. It would be wonderful to see you again. Lucy Abdulnour from DDS.

Zada and I became good friends when we met in a philosophy class at the University of Arizona in the mid-sixties.   I will remember her as a generous person, adventuresome and fun-loving, yet always dedicated to her long-term goals.  Despite our busy schedules, we were able to have lunch together a couple of times when Rene was a small child.  It was obvious how much she relished her new role as mother.  I remember her excitement when she won an immigration case at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.  No doubt there were many such accomplishments  in her career, yet she valued her family ties and always tried to put her loved ones first.  I mourn her untimely passing and extend my deepest sympathy to all her family.

I miss my neighbor Zada. I enjoyed our weekly walks, sometimes canceled because of her dedication to family and clients. I miss our talks about family, life, and plans. Zada worked hard and played hard. I felt privileged to have her as a neighbor and thought it would be so for much time to come. In my heart and memory, Zada will be there. Sabrina and Rene, please contact me if I can help you in the same neighborly manner that I did with Zada.

Rene and Sabrina, Dr. and Mrs. Edgar: I am very saddened by Zada's death and send my deepest condolences to you all. May God soon grant you all the strength to no longer mourn her death but celebrate her life. I was so very fortunate to have worked with Zada and Ernesto for many years. I had my very first law firm job with them, they took a chance on a "green" Guera from Nogales and she taught me everything I know about being a legal secretary/assistant. I was always treated as not only an employee but a member of the family. I loved them both. Rene and Sabrina: I had lunch with your mom not long ago and she couldn't stop gushing over you both and how proud she was of the young man (Rene) and young woman (Sabrina) you had become. You both were "el luz de sus ojos". Please know that if there is every anything either of you need, I am a phone call or email away. I know that she would do the same for my boys. Zada: Que en paz descanses, thank you for sharing a part of your life with me. I am truly blessed for having known you.

Dearest Rene and Sabrina -

Your Mom's service today was a beautiful and fitting tribute to the amazing woman she was. May the Peace of God sustain you in the days ahead.
