(NECN: Julie Loncich) – In the three weeks since the Boston Marathon bombings, nearly $39 million has been raised by The One Fund Boston Inc.

Monday night was the first of two town meetings to discuss how the funds raised should be distributed to those affected by the bombings.

James Costello, a parent of one of the victims in the attack said there was no definite plan, but options set on the table.

Among those proposed to receive the most funding includes death claims, double amputations and permanent brain damage.

“Nobody will walk away happy,” said Ken Feinberg, administrator of the fund. “Happy is not a word you use to describe funds like this. Money is a very poor substitute for loss”
