Family friend Paul Simon performed the Sound of Silence at Victoria Soto's funeral service today
After the eulogy, a song was offered by a familiar voice: Paul Simon, who performed “The Sound of Silence,” the haunting words capturing the nightmarish nature of how Ms. Soto died and the emptiness her death left behind. A representative for Mr. Simon said, “The Sotos and Simons met through Vicki’s mother and Paul’s sister-in-law, both nurses.”
Relatives and friends, some choking or weeping openly as they spoke, recalled her as a daughter, a sister to three siblings, a cousin and a friend. Ms. Soto was remembered as a young woman with long brown hair, captivating blue eyes and “an infectious laugh,” one who had a passion for gathering her extended family together whenever she could and making relatives laugh with sometimes zany impulsive gestures.

15. A life lived well
Even though she only lived 27 years, she lived it to it's fullest. And if there really is a heaven, she's right there with the other teachers and all the babies. I know there was not dry eye in the entire congregation when Paul sang that song. God rest Vicki and all the other innocents.
