Luv Land, murder suicide victim, remembered as ‘vibrant, quirky and devoted’
Over 150 family members and friends gathered for a vigil to honor Luv Land, the victim in the murder suicide case in Natomas, California.
The 28-year-old was shot by boyfriend, Edward Coleman, a well liked coach from Grant Union High School after an argument one week ago. They had been dating for seven years.
The vigil was held at a family member’s home and she was described as “vibrant, quirky and always devoted to those she cared for.”
“If you ever got the chance to meet her, it would be something you’d never forget cuz everybody she touched. They just loved her,” said Keith Dobson, Luv Land’s father as quoted in a Fox report.
“It’s just a shame, she had to leave so soon, but as you can see, she made a lot of friends in a short time,” said her father, Keith Dobson, as he gestured to the gathering.
One former co-worker joked about Land’s regular tardiness to the job.
“Once she got to work, guess what, it was on. Full control – didn’t have to worry about a thing. Didn’t even need security because she took care of that also,” he said as friends and family chuckled.
Another friend said she’d known Land since first grade remembered Land as giving and loving, but also lively.
“And you guys probably saw us, dressed like Bobsey Twins, making our tent money in our little shorts, you know. But my girl was a stunner, she was beautiful! And she loved life, you know what I’m saying and she’s dancing in heaven right now,” she said.
At the vigil’s end, almost everyone gathered released balloons into the night sky.
