BOSTON (CBS) – Former Mayor Thomas Menino’s cancer diagnosis was at the center of the annual St. Patrick’s Day breakfast in South Boston, which host Sen. Linda Dorcena Forry dedicated in his honor.
“Many of us woke up today and our hearts were heavy upon learning of the Mayor’s illness, but you know what that’s not what Tom Menino wants,” she said. “He doesn’t want to turn on the TV and see our long faces.”
In that spirit the jokefest continued, including a humorous video spot that featured Menino along with Gov. Deval Patrick.
