WAKEFIELD, Neb. — Residents in this small northeast Nebraska community reached out to their namesake city in Massachusetts after the Boston Marathon bombings last week.
Dan Loofe of Wakefield was watching news coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings last week when he saw an interview with Liz Norden of Wakefield, Mass. Her two sons, JP and Paul, were spectators at the race, near the finish line, when the two bombs exploded. Each son lost a leg from the knee down.
