Henry and Jane Richard, the older brother and younger sister of Boston Marathon bombing victim Martin Richard, were featured in the opening ceremony at Monday’s Red Sox home opener.

Jane sang the National Anthem along with members of a children’s choir from Dorchester’s Neponset neighborhood.

Jane’s brother Henry handed the ball to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who was at Fenway to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Jane lost a leg in the second explosion at the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. She was seven years old at the time. Henry, then 11, also suffered injuries, though less serious ones. Their mother, Denise, sustained serious injuries to one eye.

Martin died at the scene. He was eight years old.
