At the Oak Grove Cemetery here, under a cloudless blue sky, the Rev. Chip Hines led a burial service for Krystle Campbell, the 29-year-old Medford native murdered during the terrorist bombings at the Boston Marathon.

As with the funeral Mass that Hines officiated at earlier today inside St. Joseph's Church and as was true at the wake held for Campbell Sunday night, the crowd in the graveyard was expansive, and mourners moved close to surround the family and the casket.

"It was a beautiful outpouring of support for her family," Hines said afterward. "Medford really came through for her family, Medford and beyond. There were people who didn't know Krystle and her family, and they just felt they had to be there as Americans, really, and offer condolences."
