Firefighters, friends and family honor Michael Kennedy Thursday morning at a funeral in West Roxbury. He was one of two firefighters killed in a nine-alarm blaze that ripped through a brownstone in the Back Bay last week.

The other firefighter, Lt. Edward Walsh, was remembered Wednesday at a funeral in Watertown, where he was described as a "gentle giant."
