HARMONY, Maine — Two bridges in the town of Harmony have been renamed in honor of victims of domestic violence.

A ceremony was held Saturday to rename a bridge on Route 150 the Amy-Coty-Monica Memorial Bridge in honor of Amy Bagley Lake and her children.

The Harmony native and her children, 13-year-old Coty and 12-year-old Monica, were shot to death by their husband and father in June 2011 in the town of Dexter. Stephen Lake then killed himself.

WABI-TV reported that Amy’s parents, Linda and Ralph, said the bridge dedication means that their daughter will forever remain in Harmony, “now more than ever.”

Another bridge a few miles away on Route 154 was renamed the Remember Me Bridge, in honor of all victims of domestic violence.
