    Thinking of Tori

    I couldn't find a thread to put this....most of the threads are about the trial....so I thought I better create a new one.

    This is about Tori. It's four years ago today that Tori was abducted and murdered.

    Thinking beautiful thoughts about this sweet little girl!



    Any man's death diminishes me,
    Because I am involved in mankind,
    Therefore, send not to know, for whom the bell tolls;
    It tolls for thee.

    Hi Snoofer! Just to let you know, some people have posted on the "sentencing" thread in memory of Tori.

    I came across this video today. Credits for the person who made this chilling but touching video on the fourth anniversary of Tori's demise. May we never forget this beautiful little girl Tori.

    Rest in peace Tori, Tim and Jeremy.

    Hi swede And Snooper..April 9th

    Hi there to all that read this new thread...It hit me suddenly omg ... April 10 today...It was April 9 ,2009 that our nightmare began.I forgot yesterday because I was sick and was actually near Richmond Hill..I think a part of me died that day as It will and still haunts me ..even tho I did not know Tori.I do not think you needed to tho....that story hit us all hard in Ontario.I shall forever think of OnT.'s Angel .As I am preparing a new garden for my new house....I know I will be planting LOTS & lots of purple flowers.Tori loved them so ...as a butterfly often passes by I think of her .It feels like she is watching down on us here.I am sure missing her bro deeply as they were so connected and friends.I want to wish Tara & Rodney healing which I am sure is very difficult.I also pray that with the nice Spring weather approaching we Do NOT hear ANY AMBER Alerts ...as I shudder every darn time the news broadcasts them..Take care to all my Sleuthing Friends here ....the tweeting Robynhood......>3
    Five years from now, when people think of Victoria Stafford they are going to think of the little girl that changed Canadian Laws and made it a safer nation for all children.

    Hi Rockin' Robin! Glad to hear you have a new home. I bet your garden of purple flowers in honour of Tori will be just beautiful. Bless your heart. I didn't miss the anniversary of that horrific day. I took my dog for a long walk to a nice, peaceful park area of town and we released two purple balloons in her memory. I am assuming people connected the balloons with Tori, as a got a few honks from car horns, waves and thumbs up from people. Another woman walking her dog stopped and watched me release the balloons. She approached me and we chatted for a bit. She knew exactly why I released the balloons. Wonderful to know people are remembering Tori four years later. I will always remember Tori for her bright blue eyes and cherub smile. Take care Robyn.

    And in 20 years from now, I hope with every fibre of my being the POS, both of them are still rotting behind bars or dead. JMHO
    Rest in peace Tori, Tim and Jeremy.

    I would like to find a way online to let Tori's family know that people are thinking of them still and thinking of Tori. I remember a family tragedy of our own many years back. It was amazing how many people came to our family's aid during the aftermath but after the funeral and the buzz died down, the silence was deafening. That memory has stuck with me throughout my life. I wish I knew of a place where her family visited online so that I, along with many other people, could simply write them a quick note whenever they thought of them, to let them know that while the case has resolved (except for the possibility of Rafferty's appeal ), they are still and will forever be in our thoughts and prayers.

    There is a fb page for POSITIVE thoughts about Tori...if you type in Victoria's name it will bring you to her offical page .I did see a post from Tori's mom there during the trial. It was talking about fav .songs that remind them of tori as the trial was coming close to an end....Tori's mom wrote that Victoria loved Shania Twain .Tori loved the song "UP" by Shania twain and recogized the song in seconds when played on the radio...Naturally I am not positive who reads it now.I know I often visit it.....R.IP Tori ...I think of you often ...My new house is covered in purple flowers .I planted them in memory of you>>>>ONT. ANGEL forever....<3 robynhood.

    Thank you for this information, Robynhood. There is nothing we can do for Tori now other than keep her murderers in jail and keep her memory alive. It hurts me to write that.

    However, it is her family I worry about now and I keep her parents, big brother and grandparents in my thoughts always. I so wish for them to know that just because the headlines have stopped does not mean that they, and Tori, have ever stopped being in our hearts and minds. I especially wish for some measure of peace for Tara after the mudslinging she went through in the press and online on top of going through every person's worst nightmare.

    Thanks again.

    I am going to be heading toward Woodstock on Saturday and wanted to stop by Tori's grave for a few minutes. Would someone be able to give me directions to the cemetery and the area where her grave is? Coming to Woodstock from the London direction on 401.

    Thanks in advance.
    Our memories shape us, providing a backdrop for our daily lives, a context for our actions, a rationale for our sometimes dubious decisions. Who we are today is inextricably woven through with memories of who we were yesterday, and the days before that.

    Hi Nettie

    I believe you would take the Norwich exit on 401E and make a left on Norwich... and then a left on Dundas. I believe the cemetery will be on your ride hand side not far from there, close to the police station. I could be wrong... trying to remember as we went from Toronto last year. Hope that helps. Say hi to her for me xoxo

    I wrote this poem for Tori and posted it in the Tori Stafford Virtual Garden thread in 2009. Visiting there today, I see someone had asked me to post it in the main threads and I must have missed that. As we are remembering Tori, it seems now is a good time to repost it

    Victoria

    A smile sweetens summer sun
    A spirit whispers a summer breeze
    Golden hair in autumn's leaves
    We remember

    Pure heart like white of winter's snow
    Blue eyes stars in a winter sky
    Spring rains hold the tears we cry
    We remember

    Oh gentle heart sleep softly now
    For those you love will meet again
    And as a nation kneels in pain
    We remember


    Rest in Peace "Tori"

    That's a lovely tribute, SB. I also noticed your poem on Jeff Boucher's thread, very well done as well. I wish I had the way with words that you do.
