Here's a sad but true story. It starts with a young couple living in North Carolina, married two years, wife pregnant, husband in the Army Reserves. He's deployed to Afghanistan for a year, and she moves to Maryland to live with her parents and newborn daughter. One year later, a week before the child's father comes home from Afghanistan, the wife texts her husband to say she's divorcing him - she claimed abandonment, even though they had kept in touch weekly - and then takes two thirds of the money they had saved.

MASSAPEQUA, N.Y. - For his first day at John P. McKenna Junior High School, Al DeMeo showed up in a suit. He wore his blond hair slicked back. He was quiet and serious for a seventh-grader. Before the final bell, some eighth-grader hazed Al, knocking his books from his hand. Al pushed the upperclassman against the lockers and pummeled his face until he dropped limp to the floor. Al continued on to class without a word. No one picked on Al DeMeo again. Most of his classmates knew there was already a perfectly compelling reason not to pick on Al: His father was in the Mafia.

She is 71 years old, and she has no memory of his voice. But that was her father on the recording, and he called her his "Margaret Ann. " She was glad she was alone when she heard him speak, she said. It was just such a surprise. His voice was so clear, he sounded so much like the rest of his Catonsville family. He spoke slowly and gently. He sounded calm. Sgt. Cody L. Wolf, a turret gunner, died when his plane was shot down over Germany on Jan. 11, 1944. It was just weeks after his holiday greeting had been recorded as part of a 1943 Sunpapers Christmas Show produced by the newspaper's war correspondents in England.

Gregory A. Rapisarda has answered to the name "father" for decades, but that name will soon take on a much broader meaning. Rapisarda, a 62-year-old widower, father of four and grandfather of five, will be ordained today at the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in North Baltimore. The Rev. John C. Rapisarda, ordained in 2008, will perform the vesting honors for his own father, placing on him a cream-colored chasuble, the vestment worn at Mass. And then, for the first time in the 221-year history of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, a father and son will both serve as parish priests, according to church officials.

There was a mistake, Johns Hopkins University officials told Amanda Valledor at Thursday's graduation.  Her diploma had been misplaced, and the biomedical engineering student would have to wait, they said.  A few minutes later, a man came to hand Valledor the diploma. It was her father, Col. John Valledor, whom she had not seen since he left for Afghanistan last year.  He had not been scheduled to return home until next month.  Valledor, 22, froze for an instant, then ran into her father's arms.

Gary Steele didn't attribute much significance to the pass he'd just caught. He was merely doing his job as the sophomore tight end for Army's football team. But in the stands at Michie Stadium, two older men gently knocked knees. It was a subtle gesture between friends, both of whom had spent time at West Point as Buffalo Soldiers in the 1940s. One of the men was Steele's father, the other his godfather. They had never dreamed they'd see a black cadet, much less a member of the family, catch a pass on that field.

When the Archdiocese of Baltimore announced this month that the Cardinal Gibbons School was closing, students felt as if the rug had been pulled out from under them. For sophomores Ryan and Michael Flynn, it was more like the floor. Just three months ago, Gibbons dedicated its basketball court to their late father, Bob Flynn, a popular coach from 1999 to 2005. In a moving ceremony attended by his family, school officials in December unveiled that portion of the floor inscribed with Flynn's name.

The chill of a late summer night had fallen over California's Sierra Nevada range, and all Jim Lighthizer could do was pace. Here at 10,600 feet, the trees had thinned out and a full moon lit the canyon. But the splendor hardly registered. His steps took him back and forth in front of a two-man tent. On the floor lay his 28-year-old son, Conor, a diabetic whose condition worsened by the hour. What was he supposed to do? What the hell was he supposed to do? He could go for help or send his brother-in-law.
