    She thinks the world of her. They both participate in Boston City Singers. My wife had just been hiking with Denise the day before and was very excited to be getting to know her. She came home glowing about the wonderful, strong women of Dorchester.

    As we followed the news after the blasts the circle of involvement kept getting smaller and smaller until it landed right in our laps.

    The Roberts are very well known and loved. Everywhere I go in the neighborhood someone has a personal story of their connection to them.

    My wife and me have been agonizing over how to both inform and protect our daughters. So far I think we managed to thread that needle but this isn't something that gets explained and then we move on. This isn't going away. We are going to be there for this family as neighbors and friends. This is the world our children are growing up in.
