In the emotional years since the murder of Yeardley Love in May 2010, her mother, Sharon, and older sister, Lexie, have had one thing to distract them from from their sadness, a "driving force," as Lexie called it, that has kept them afloat when little else could.

On Sunday, that driving force — the Yeardley Love Field at the shared alma mater of the two sisters and their mother, Notre Dame Preparatory School in Towson — will be dedicated at a Sept. 9 ceremony expected to include hundreds of family members, friends and current students.

"Our good friends were our lifeboat," Sharon Love said this week, recalling the family's journey.

"Good friends, and total strangers," Sharon Love said. "We've gotten so much support from so many, both emotionally and financially. That's all I felt kept us afloat. It still does."
