Second fallen Boston firefighter laid to rest

Posted: Updated:
The second of two Boston firemen is being laid to rest today (Thursday).

Thousands of firefighters from around the country lined the streets to pay their respects.

Michael Kennedy died along with his colleague, Lieutenant Edward Walsh, while battling last week's 9-alarm fire in Boston's back bay. Walsh's funeral was yesterday (Wednesday).

Kennedy was an Iraq-War veteran, a talented cook and a motorcycling enthusiast. He was reportedly considering proposing to his girlfriend next month.

In traditional fashion, his helmet preceded the casket into the church before the service.
