McFarland was expected to travel Monday to Chicago to be with his family after the death of his grandmother over the weekend. McFarland, who picked up the win Sunday after pitching a scoreless inning in the Orioles' 3-2, 10-inning victory over the Seattle Mariners, is expected to miss the first two games of this week's three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels at Camden Yards.

Family members who accept the popular notion that Mom or Pop should "cry it out" after the death of their spouse and then "get over it" after a respectable period of mourning may have it all wrong, University of Maryland Baltimore County researchers believe.An 18-month survey of 159 Baltimore-area men and women who lost a spouse to cancer also found that people who join bereavement support groups may not recover any faster than those who don't."Bereavement has been with us forever, so there has grown up a great deal of folklore and tradition about what grief entails, and how long it should take to recover from it," said the study's author, Dr. Leon Levy, a clinical psychologist, professor and chairman of UMBC's psychology department.

AT Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard and Jones Station Road, progress is coming in the form of a new drug store, which I'll probably patronize someday.For now, an ugly chain-link fence has been erected around the construction site.The restaurant that once stood there is gone, but memories remain.When I moved to Maryland 27 years ago, the Wagon Wheel Restaurant on that corner had been a landmark for decades.Its St. Patrick's Day celebrations were legend.Whether drawn by satisfying food, drink or conversation, people often ended up at Severna Park's version of the English pub.The Wagon Wheel taught me my first lesson in Maryland culture.

I suspect my children will want to see me throw myself on my husband's funeral pyre, the better to tie up all the loose ends. But I am certain they would not want me out there and available again. And frankly, the idea of revisiting all that teenage dating angst does seem like an awful lot of work. Just in time for Mother's Day, there is a new book, written by two women who watched their own mothers search for love again in widowhood, called "From Granny Panties to Thongs: The Mourning After.

In the aftermath of the Newtown massacre, people continue to ask the useless question, "Why?" We search for the shooter's "motive," as if we could discover a satisfactory explanation for why a depressed young man would decide to execute his mother, 20 first-graders and six of their teachers. Why did this latest alienated loner in our pantheon of mass murderers grab the stockpile of weapons his suburban mother had accumulated? How could people not have known? Was this a "failure of the mental health system?"

When my cat Atticus died, I was a wreck. We got a call from a neighbor who found his little tabby body in the street. He'd been hit by a car. My husband (at the time) scooped him up and brought him home to the garage and left the cat there, as he had to fly off on a business trip. Long story short: A day later, I had an Episcopal priest in my backyard, giving my cat a send-off as we buried him (probably illegally). It made me feel a little better, standing with my friends, giving Atticus, a great feline, his due. At some point, I stopped continuously crying and shaking.
