Rhonda LeRocque, a 42-year-old Tewksbury mother was one of the 59 people killed in the Las Vegas mass shooting on Sunday night, according to the Boston Globe. She attended the concert with her husband Jason, six year old daughter, and father-in-law. Her father-in-law and daughter had just left the concert to head back to their hotel room when the shooting began. Korina Champagne, LeRocque’s sister posted on Facebook Monday mourning her sister’s passing. “My heart is broken, I’m numb, I feel paralyzed. This doesn’t seem real,” she wrote. “All I can do is turn to God’s Word for comfort, just as she would want me to. May she rest now until her name is called and she is awakened in paradise.” The four had planned to head to Disney Land in Anaheim, California with their daughter. LeRocque’s mother Priscilla Champagne continues to mourn the loss of her daughter. “My first thought waking up this morning is, ‘I’ll never see my baby girl again.’ I loved her so much.” said Champagne at her home on Tuesday morning.
