The City of Boston is remembering former Mayor Tom Menino in the days after his death.

People are taking time out of their day to honor the long-time city leader in the condolence books that have been spread out across the city for people to sign.

At City Hall there has been a steady stream of people going in to leave a message.

The farewell for Menino will begin Sunday in a place that meant a lot to him: Faneuil Hall with an open ended wake at 10 a.m.

On Monday a private funeral will be held at Most Precious Blood Church in Hyde Park where Menino worshipped as a child.

“I’m not surprised at all that Tom Menino chose to have the funeral here because he’s a Hyde Park guy. It’s an honor for this community to welcome him back,” Rev. Ronald Coyne said.

Workers and volunteers spent Halloween day cleaning the church in preparation for one final goodbye.

“It’s a privilege, it’s an honor and we’re glad to do it,” Susan Colantuoni said.

Coyne says he’s happy to help with this funeral, especially for Angela Menino.

“[She’s a] great lady. They were a wonderful couple. They worshipped together, they celebrated together, and they raised their children together.

They really were partners in this marriage and I give them a lot of credit,” he said.
