Boston is remembering the three victims who lost their lives in the Marathon explosions.
Hundreds attended a series of vigils across the city Tuesday.
Third grader Martin Richard had just gotten ice cream and was waiting to see his father cross the finish line when he was killed.
Richard's mother and younger sister were seriously injured in the bombings.

In a statement, the boy's father thanked friends, family and strangers for their support.
Twenty-nine year old Krystle Campbell was also killed.
Campbell was cheering on a friend at the race and had been preparing for her wedding next month.
The third person killed was a young chinese woman who had been attending Boston University as a graduate student.
More than 170 others were wounded in the two explosions.
