Fiorentini, Rivera Attend Menino Visiting Hours

Several Merrimack Valley leaders turned out in Boston Sunday to pay their final respects to former Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino.

Mayors James J. Fiorentini of Haverhill and Daniel Rivera of Lawrence were among those who attended public visiting hours at Faneuil Hall, as the late former mayor Menino lay in state. Menino passed away last Thursday at the age of 71.

There will be a funeral procession today that traverses various Boston neighborhoods before a private funeral service at Menino’s boyhood parish, Hyde Park’s Most Precious Blood Parish.

Letters and cards may be sent to: Mayor Menino’s Office, Boston University, 75 Bay State Road, Boston, MA 02215. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Thomas M. Menino Fund for Boston.
