In Loving Memory
August 3, 1991 – September 5, 2014
Victoria Anne Saxer, of Fairhope, passed away on September 4, 2014 at the early age of 23. She was born on August 3, 1991 in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the third child and second daughter to Ashley Martin and Michael Saxer. She was a wonderful and influential person who positively affected the lives of everyone she knew, and was the most kind hearted and caring person that any of her family and friends knew. Her presence would put everyone at ease. Succeeding at everything she put her mind to, she was on the Dean’s list and was the cohort leader at her school, Breckinridge School of Nursing. She worked at several different jobs that allowed her to immediately engage with people who needed her help in both hospital and home healthcare.
She is survived by her parents, Ashley (Brian) Martin of Fairhope, AL and Michael (Janet) Saxer of Waveland, MS; brother, John Saxer of Anchorage, AK; sister, Caitlen Babb of Fairhope, AL; and many other relatives and friends.
Victoria was a bright and kind young woman who will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

So sorry for your loss. May God comfort you during this difficult time.
Victoria was a caregiver for Mr. Gary and what a beautiful person–inside and out. We loved her for her gentleness, her caring , her professionalism, her positive attitude, and her faith in God.

There are no words of comfort strong enough to really help at this time. Just know that we are all praying for your family. God bless you all.
Mike, Janet and siblings of Victoria Saxer,
You have our deepest condolences and prayers! Only God knows when it’s time to call an angel home although we don’t always agree with the conditions or decisions one makes.
She is now with God and there will be no more sorrow for her. God in his infinite wisdom has a plan for all of us and not to be questioned.
God Bless each of you in this time of sadness. Words are empty at times like this but it’s our way of expressing our individual sorrow as well.
Anne and I send our love and prayers to you and your family. May God’s light shine forever on Victoria.
Reb and Anne Bodet

My Precious Darling Victoria, I still hear your wonderful voice on my phone. I am so proud of you making the Deans list in nursing,you are and were a wonderful granddaughter. Your Uncle Jon and I will see you every day in our hearts.
I love you to the moon and back.
Deepest sympathy for the loss of your daughter. Losing a loved one is never easy. May God be with the family in this of time. Sending prayers
I did not know you well, and I can only say that I met you a handful of times. However, what I do remember of you is well kept and acknowledged. I cannot speak to the insurmountable obstacles that may have led to this day, but you are kept immortal in the memories of those that love you. I hope that you find whatever peace you couldn’t find in this life, in the next. It is truth that no one can understand your struggles, but that we should take solace in the fact that they are now over and we can smile in the thought that you are in a better place. I may not have ever gotten to touch your soul, but from the memories shared here in this guest book, I imagine that I would have been blessed to know you better than I did. I wish you safe travels in whatever awaits you beyond the veil and that you will watch us all and continue to guide us down safer paths ourselves. You are beautiful, loved, and remembered always in the hearts of those that love you.
Peace be with you, blessed be.

Sweetheart it is now one month since you left on your journey. I see you every day in my heart wishing I could have been with you at this time of sadness. The african vilote that was in your room two years ago is still beautiful as like you. I miss you more more each day. My life will never be the same without my only granddaughter. My precious girl, you had so many planes for the future and so many patients to help. I love you to the moon and back. Your Grams
Hello my Precious, I look at you each day, the picture of you as a little girl and then an adult. I miss you so very much and wish I could have done some thing to prevent this terrible death. I think of you all the time wishing I could have taken your pain away. I will always love you.
We, Uncle Jon and I are starting a place for people in your name and honor of your life with brain injuries as you had ask me about before your passing. It will be called Victoria’s Dream.
I love you my precious one and only granddaughter.
