The family of a MA woman who was among the 58 people killed in the shooting at a Las Vegas country music festival last week has issued a public statement just days before they prepare to say their final goodbyes.

"Words can not properly describe the loss we feel and the emptiness Rhonda's death leaves in all of us", Ball said.

LeRocque was at the concert with her husband Jason, their 6-year-old daughter, and her father-in-law for what Jason LeRocque described as "quality family time".

Rhonda's mother, Priscilla Champagne, of Lowell, has said Rhonda and Jason "were the ideal little family", who met at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Wilmington, and fell even more deeply in love over the years.

LeRocque said he, his wife, their daughter and his father, Roy LeRocque, had gone to Vegas, as was their "routine", for family time and to attend the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

Forty-two-year-old Rhonda LeRocque was among those killed October 1 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival across the street from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas strip.

Among the people Jason LeRocque praised was the pilot on their JetBlue flight home.

Jason LeRocque also thanked the myriad people who have helped the family both in Las Vegas and in their hometown of Tewksbury.

Residents from across the region, as well as the Greg Hill Foundation, donated to funds that will care for the family's long-term needs.

"Rhonda was a firm believer in the Bible's hope for the future that soon death and violent acts will no longer exist", LeRocque said.

"Thanks to the heroic efforts of a few individuals we could get her to the trauma center while still breathing", Jason LeRocque said in a statement Thursday.

A wake for Rhonda will be held Friday, and a public memorial service will be held on Saturday morning at Tewksbury High School.

Visiting hours will be held tomorrow from 2 to 8 the Nichols Funeral Home in Wilmington.
