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 am writing this note to thank you for a very memorable Saturday in October. I headed over to the Middle School to lend a hand for a little while on a playground project. Let me just tell you I was blown away by the spirit and attitude and hard work of you both and your family. I could not leave once I was there.

I'm sure your hearts break every day for your loss, but I'm also sure Torie is so proud of her beautiful family and how they touch other people's hearts through her memory. Once again, thank you for all you do for our children.   - Janices Picklus
