Love Family Talks Candidly in Katie Couric Interview

Just last month the Love family was in the courtroom while George Huguely was sentenced for killing Yeardley Love.

Yeardley's mother Sharon Love and her sister Lexie shared their memories of the UVa student on the nationally syndicated show Katie, which is hosted by journalist and UVa alumni Katie Couric.

"We were kind of like two peas in a pod. She would do anything for me and I would do anything for her," said Lexie Love.

They talked about the day when police knocked on their door May 3, 2010. Sharon Love said she doesn't even remember what the police exactly said because she just shut down.

Sharon Love described her daughter as a bright, caring and fun young lady. Her mother says she never knew of any kind of violence and had no inkling or reason to believe that George Huguely would do something harmful.

But there was one event that did change the way Yeardley, her friends, and her family looked at George Huguely. Yeardley Love apparently was upset and told her family that Huguely tried to restrain and chock her. After the incident Sharon Love brought up placing a restraining order against Huguely, but Yeardley said she would take care of it and she wouldn't deal with him again.

"It was over, it was absolutely over, the relationship, and I had no idea that anything else would become of it. It was three weeks until graduation," said Sharon Love.

Now, the Love family says they are trying to move forward. They created the One Love Foundation in which they hope they can help prevent something like this from happening to someone else's daughter. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion.
