30 May 2011 – So Very Sad…
Taught English Language/American Culture at Auxiliar de conversacion, Ministry of Education/Spain. Studied International Relations at Texas Christian University. Lived in Manzanares, Castilla-La Mancha/Spain. Languages spoken English, Spanglish, Spanish.
Victoria, first-born to Kathryn & Michael passed away suddenly in Spain today where she had just completed her teaching assignment and was on her way back home to TX/USA. This wonderful young lady crossed my path in FL/USA in the early 1990s with fond memories.
Our last contact was regarding her concerns if the plane will be able to take off as the volcano ashes in Iceland were again getting in the way for the planes. Her travel itinerary was: Berlin, Cologne, Heidelberg, Hamburg, Rothenberg, Dachau, Neuschwanstein, Munich, Zurich, Basel, Madrid, TEXAS. Told her that all the fingers are crossed for her.
Oh Tori, you will be greatly missed and may you rest in peace. Such a charming young lady who was not afraid to live her life fully. Thank you for crossing my path and for your being. Sincere condolences, prayers and thoughts to her family, especially to her mom Kathy dad Michael, sister Samantha, brother Michael jr and aunt Nancy & the Bowmans.
Was so dreading to house painting and was online re-reading about a previous blog posting:
Also posted in my FB comment to someone just before the news of her passing. In my next life, I want to be a butterfly, flying freely and sniffing at the beautiful flowers; looking gorgeous for 24hrs and die ●♥ Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ♥●
And strangely as I received the news of her passing, a butterfly was outside my window. For Norway, it is too early for the butterflies (long winter&late spring this time round). Not sure if this makes any sense, had to edit (1 Mar 2013) as what was previously written was confusing as I was in a total state of shock.
