Vicki Soto, the heroic Sandy Hook Elementary School teacher who gave her life to save her students, was a Yankees fan. Wednesday night, Vicki’s sister Carlee tweeted that Yankee Derek Jeter had phoned her grieving mom, Donna Soto. “This meant a lot to my mother and all of us,” she tweeted.

Twitter users who saw Carlee’s tweet also appreciated the touching gesture.
