“It was really emotional for me,” Hasay told WBZ-TV. “I know that a lot of people out there lost loved ones here, and so that really just lifted me up. I was thinking about all of them and I know that they were with us all in spirit, and that my mom would be really proud. I love her so much and she’ll always be with me.”
