    Searched the site for a posting on this, but didn't find. Apologies if it's been discussed. Anyone here know the family?

    Rhonda LeRocque of Tewksbury, Massachusetts, was one of the victims in the shooting, her family said.
    Her mother, Priscilla Champagne, told CNN that LeRocque was a "beautiful woman inside and out."
    "A truly great mother, daughter, wife, aunt, sister, worker, and a good, kindhearted friend. She had a great faith in Jehovah God, and had a wonderful family life. She loved Hawaii, Disney, and country music." she said.
    "She was the best of the best. She was the hostess with the mostess ... the glue who kept our family gatherings together. She will be greatly missed by us all."
    Her sister, Korina Champagne, said in a Facebook post on Monday that her heart was broken.
    "My Beautiful Sister Rhonda LeRocque lost her life in the Las Vegas mass shooting," Korina Champagne posted. "My heart is broken, I'm numb, I feel paralyzed. This doesn't seem real. 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."
    She added a Bible passage to the end of her Facebook post, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment."

    and also some more discussion here:


  • JunkYardDog

    she's going straight to hell for going to a rock/country concert. i'm sure i can find a wt pub that says this. sorry for the family

  • carla

    I'm sorry for those that love her and will miss her.

    A question though, she loved Disney? Wasn't there a wt rag that said going to Disney and spending all the money was a bad thing? or perhaps it is one of those unspoken things? Disney and the 'magical' kingdom and all of that.
