Friends of fallen Boston Firefighter Michael Kennedy on Monday were among the crowd at the Boston Marathon, donning tee shirts with the words "Dork Strong" in honor of his nickname, WHDH reported

Kennedy, a native of West Roxbury and Roslindale, died alongside Boston Fire Lt. Ed last month while battling a nine-alarm fire that broke in a building in Back Bay. He ran last year's Boston Marathon and had been training to run in this year's race.

But he was there in spirit, as his girlfriend, Sarah Wessmann, a spectator at last year's race, was able to run on Monday, according to WHDH. 

“She just stuck to it," Julie Scorzello told WHDH. "Just did it. Did it for him. Did it for all of us. That’s what it’s all about in Roslindale. That’s what it’s all about in Boston."
