On October 21, 2004 our daughter, Victoria “Torie” Snelgrove, attended a Red Sox celebration in Boston and was tragically killed. In her memory we have established The Victoria Snelgrove Memorial Fund, a non-profit organization to carry forward her spirit and concern for others. It was Torie’s dream to pursue a career in broadcast journalism and she was on her way to accomplishing that goal at Emerson College when she died. Since establishing The Fund seven years ago we have worked hard to fulfill the mission set before us to keep Torie’s spirit alive.

Thoughts & Tributes

I just wanted to reach out and send my thoughts and prayers. Torie was one year older than me in school. She was in my multi-media class and I will never forget her. She was beautiful, confident, and extremely smart. I looked up to her. After the tragedy, I remember writing about it and submitting it to my college paper. If I can somehow find it, I would love to share it with you. I just want you to know that she effected more people than she knew. She was a beautiful soul and is now always with you. Love and prayer. -Rachel   - Rachel Pooler
