MEDFORD, Mass. (AP) — Hundreds of family and friends packed a church in Medford, Mass., for the funeral of a Boston Marathon bombing victim, while dozens more waited outside after being turned away.

Gov. Deval Patrick and Cardinal Sean O’Malley were among the people who attended the funeral Mass Monday for 29-year-old Krystle Campbell at St. Joseph Church in her hometown.

Campbell was one of three people killed near the finish line a week ago. The restaurant manager had gone to watch a friend finish the race.

Marishi Charles, who attended the funeral, says Campbell’s parents were too distraught to talk, so pastor Chip Hines spoke for them during the service, saying “Krystle was always there for people.”

Co-worker Julia Dziamba could not get in. She says she remembers Campbell as “beautiful, fun and lovely.”
