Husband speaks publicly for first time since wife killed
A Massachusetts mother who was among the 58 people killed in the mass shooting was remembered by her husband on Thursday for her love and faith.
Rhonda Lerocque, 42, was “the happiest, most caring, sweet, and self-sacrificing person you would ever know,” Jason Lerocque wrote in a statement read by a cousin at police headquarters in their hometown of Tewksbury. It was his first public comment since his wife’s death.
Rhonda Lerocque was among the first people shot on Oct. 1, he said. Their 6-year-old daughter, as well as Jason Lerocque’s father had been with the couple but left before the gunfire.
The service for Rhonda Lerocque is at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Tewksbury Memorial High School.
