Tori to me was the light that brought everyone together even if they were popular or not it didn’t matter what social group you were in she made us all equal and i love that she did that for us because when we met i did not know how my future was going to look like but now i do because she inspired me when she told me she was in choir and sang a song to me it was like an angel on earth and i would do anything to hear it again fly high tori i will visit you soon love you girl

  4. I was In aristocrats with Tori. We were all shocked when we heard the news about Tori. You were so nice to all of us. You meant something to all of us. she left us with a great friendship that we cherished. But deep down inside us, you left us with a piece of you. So your memories will live inside us no matter were we are. We all are going to miss you Tori. I hope you’re still singing where you are.

  6. I didn’t know you like that but you’ll be missed and never forgotten Tori, I remember when I first meant you though, you always had a smile on your face, even if you were annoyed or didn’t want to be there, you gave me your chips and orange, we raced and I’m pretty sure you beat me, only because I tripped but still, just from hanging out with you for a little bit and not really knowing you, i can tell you had the sweetest soul, r.i.p Tori, my condolences for the family and friends

She was incredibly friendly and was a huge impact on a ton of people at the school. Many of us are incredibly saddened by her passing. She was such an amazing girl and always knew how to be a good person and help others.
