Rockingham County, NC -- Friends of the couple killed in a weekend home invasion are honoring Troy and LaDonna French on social media and with blue ribbons.

A Facebook page called Blue Hope launched Tuesday and encourages people to "wear a Carolina Blue Ribbon or tie one on a tree in your front yard until justice has been served." The page was nearing 1,500 likes on Wednesday evening.

The Frenches were big Carolina fans and community members hope the effort spurs awareness and remembrance as investigators search for leads in their murders.

Someone shot them to death in their home in the Bethany community early Saturday morning. Their daughter Whitley was injured, but released from the hospital. 

The couple's funeral is scheduled for Wednesday at 3 p.m. at the Reidsville Christian Church.
