Yeardley Love: UVA Students, Strangers Remember The 'Sweetest Person Ever To Be Around'

Posted: Updated:

In the day after her murder, more than 14,000 people flocked to a Facebook page to remember University of Virginia senior Yeardley Love, many of whom did not even know the skilled lacrosse player.

"There are no words to express my sadness dear Yeardley even though I did not know you in life. I miss you anyway. God bless you dear," one woman wrote.

Another Facebook group, "R.I.P. Yeardley Love, May 3, 2010," was created by a SUNY-Albany student who wrote that he did not know Love personally. The group has more than 8,000 members.

UVA athletic director Craig Littlepage told CBS that her teammates and friends described her as "an angel." Her high school lacrosse coach said "there was not a soul [at the school] who could say her name without smiling."

Love's former boyfriend George Huguely has been charged with first-degree murder in her death.
