Hus­band speaks pub­licly for first time since wife killed

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - #VEGASSTRONG: HOPE AND HEALING -

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.
