The Chinese family of Lingzi Lu, the 23-year-old Boston University graduate student who was killed in the Boston Marathon bombings, have thanked Boston for the "unending river of love and kindness" they've received from the city and its "true heroes."
Lu's family thanked first responders, health care professionals and strangers who risked their lives to save others in an open letter in the Boston Globe.
"During the darkest days and nights since the passing of our dear daughter Lingzi, we have been gifted with an unending river of love and kindness from the Boston community and people from all over the world," the letter read, in part. "We are humbled and forever grateful for your continued generosity, support, and encouragement."
Over 260 people were injured and three people were killed, including Lu, in the April 15, 2013 bombings.
Lu's family also thanked the jurors who convicted and sentenced Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death in the bombings for their work during the trial.
