LAWRENCE, MASS. (WHDH) - Loved ones gathered Monday to say a final farewell to Lawrence Marine Sgt. Johanny Rosario Pichardo, who was killed in Afghanistan last month.

Her body was flown to Logan International Airport on Saturday before being escorted to Lawrence in a public procession.
Hundreds of people lined the streets along the route to pay their respects to Rosario Pichardo.
The New England Patriots also honored her before their first game of the season on Sunday by putting a tribute to her on their big screen.
Rosario Pichardo’s family held a private funeral Mass on Monday that was attended by Gov. Charlie Baker and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito, as well as Senators Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren.
Public visitation will be held Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lawrence Veterans Memorial Stadium.
Eulogies will be offered following public visitation.
Rosario Pichardo will then be buried in Bellevue Cemetry in Lawrence.
The family has set up a GoFundMe in her memory.
