Boston firefighter Michael Kennedy has been laid to rest. Kennedy died alongside Fire Lt. Edward Walsh last week in a 9-alarm blaze in the Back Bay.

Walsh was buried Wednesday, and yesterday, thousands of mourners lined the streets of West Roxbury as Kennedy's casket made its way to Holy Name Church.

WBUR reporter David Scharfenberg joined WBUR's Morning Edition to talk about Kennedy's funeral services.
