Joy and lingering grief mix at Fenway Park

As the Evans family made their way to Fenway Park on Saturday, they passed a row of police motorcycles, part of a strong police presence around the stadium. Catching the wide-eyed stares of 6-year-old twins Shane and Shannon, one officer asked if they wanted to sit on his bike. Their eyes grew wider still.

Looking on, Steve Evans let a tired smile cross his face. Five days had passed in a jagged blur, a haze of shock and grief and finally, late Friday, a sweet measure of relief with the capture of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect. And renewed hope that life, and a shaken city, would in time find their way back.
