I was at the Marathon cheering on my wife. I made a trek to Wellesley Hills to watch from there before heading to watch the end. I met a very sweet couple and struck up a conversation. This past week they wrote a letter to the editor in the Chicago Tribune. They were trying to find out if my wife and I were OK. In less than an hour, Bill and Sharon have touched my wife and I for the rest of our lives. Their earnestness in tracking us down is beyond words and thanks. While Boston may look after their own—they look after others. The people are what make Boston incredibly remarkable. Stay strong—Boston Strong.
