Miriam Frankl's aunt, Rebecca German, is a professor at the Hopkins School of Medicine. She shared the victim impact statement she read at Meighan's sentencing with the Baltimore Sun: "I am Rebecca German, Miriam Frankl's aunt. I have no children of my own, and my niece and nephews mean a lot to me. When Miriam was killed I lost two women. The first is the girl who I was at her birth, a million times in between and again on the day that she died. She was fearless and bold, and was exploring and discovering and expressing herself from an early age. I ache every time I think about her smile, her freckles and of all that beauty inside and out that is now gone.

"Aunt Millie" - as soldiers receiving care packages in Afghanistan affectionately refer to 95-year-old Vivian "Millie" Bailey - doesn't see an end in sight for the work her group does. Yet she and her volunteers are more than willing to take on more. "Whatever number of troops we have over there is too many," says the Running Brook resident, who has lived in Columbia since 1970. "Any time you have to send them toilet paper, and then any president says [the country] is meeting our troops' needs… well, that just makes me want to stand up and fuss and cuss," Bailey said.

Kitty Boy, Freddy the Frog, Milly and Tinkerbell rested among a dozen stuffed animals clustered on a table, tokens of affections from Bessie "Aunt Bess" Snyder's numerous admirers.In 102 years, she has picked up quite a few of those -- admirers and stuffed animals."Isn't this silly? An old woman like me having so many toys," said Aunt Bess, grinning as she plucked Tinkerbell from the crowd. She pushed a button on the dog's belly and placed it on the floor of her room in Carroll Lutheran Village to bark, walk and back-flip.

As a member of Stephen Pitcairn's family I would like to publicly offer my gratitude to the citizens and officials of Baltimore. Over the course of the trial of John Wagner, the man found guilty of my nephew's robbery and murder, I was impressed with the professionalism demonstrated by all parties: from the judge to the attorneys, the clerks, the bailiff, the sheriffs, the press, and others. Judge Charles J. Peters acted with thoughtful consideration and made decisions with fairness.

A report on the Fourth of July drowning of a 6-year-old Baltimore boy at Sandy Point State Park says that the youngster was more than two football fields away from his guardians and could not be seen because buildings blocked the view. The review, released Monday by the Maryland Park Service, concluded that Sandy Point staff followed the beach management plan and correctly carried out search-and-rescue procedures. "We are comfortable with our procedures, and we are confident they were followed," said Lt. Col. Chris Bushman, the park service deputy superintendent.

Today we published a story examining the aftermath of a double-murder case that Ravens star Ray Lewis was charged in back in 2000. His murder charges were ultimately dropped, and he pleaded to a misdemeanor obstruction of justice charge, while two co-defendants were acquitted of murder. But the issue still resonates for Lewis and the families of the two men killed in a brawl outside an Atlanta club. Read the story here.   We spoke today with another aunt of Richard Lollar, one of the men killed in the brawl, as well as former Ravens kicker Matt Stover.

She went to bed, her heart heavy with the regret of an evening ending badly, and her exhausted brain replayed the day again and again as she looked for some clue to make tomorrow better.It had not been an awful evening. It had just been a typical evening. The children had angered her with their general lack of cooperation, and she had angered herself because she had let them get to her. It was the same old pattern, and she had fallen into it yet again.There was no shrieking or spanking. No tearful tantrums.

I probably should have bowed out when the guy told me his aunt was Ethel Merman. I probably should haved laughed sardonically and said: "Look, pal, Ethel Merman was a large legend with a voice as big as Broadway. If she knew you were invoking her name to mooch a few bucks off some sucker in Baltimore, she'd rise from the dead and run you out of town."Alas, there's no business like this guilt business, and I just couldn't bring myself to tell the guy to kiss off.Aside from the dubious reference to a dead American vocalist, his story sounded pretty good.

I was giving a speech once to a group of career women who had decided to be stay-at-home moms, and I was waiting to be introduced when I overheard an animated conversation between two of them. "So, the doctor said she could have a serving of grapes, but he didn't tell me how many grapes were in a serving. Is it, like, three or six? And what is the number if you cut the grapes in half so she doesn't choke? Do you count each half or each whole? "I mean, really. How many grapes are supposed to be in a serving?

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake wasn't exactly jumping when Jada Pinkett Smith asked for her help in protecting elephants earlier this week. The mayor more or less says she had bigger fish to fry -- that and the actress didn't help her out when the city needed it. But Friday Pinkett Smith's aunt, who runs the Baltimore-based charity of the actress, said her niece has done quite a bit for the city -- and she's surprised that the mayor doesn't...

Gabriella Polsinelli still recalls the heartbreak she felt when her favorite aunt died of breast cancer five years ago. She was a sixth-grader at the time and didn't really understand the disease. But watching her Aunt Maria transform from a vibrant woman to a frail, skinny and sickly one left a lasting impression on young Gabriella. With her aunt's memory still strong, Polsinelli has became a teenage advocate for breast cancer awareness, raising money each year for the cause.

DEAR AMY -- I have a 79-year-old aunt who is driving everyone in the family nuts. I think she has some form of dementia, but my mother and their younger sister say she has always been this way, changing her targets throughout the years. Nearly seven years ago, she began a campaign to convince the rest of the family that her younger sister is insane -- in her words, "a sociopath," and when we disagreed with her, she demanded that we cease contact. This year, she targeted my mother. I wrote my aunt, only to have the letter returned with her address scratched out so viciously she tore holes in the envelope.
