Cathy Teodosio, a 55-year-old special education teacher, has been biking in fundraising events for more than two decades, but next weekend's Ride to Conquer Cancer will be especially personal for her. In April 2013, her father, Joseph Teodosio, was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Soon after moving from Connecticut to Fells Point in October, she heard about the event - which benefits Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center, Sibley Memorial and Suburban Hospitals. "It took several months with the move and his recovery for me to actually sign up for something like this, but I knew I had to do it," Cathy Teodosio said.

What is the world coming to when a parent who is devastated by the loss of a child cannot bury that child in peaceful manner without worrying about protestors whose legal bills he now has been ordered to pay? ("Anger over bill to Marine's dad," March 31.) This family and every other family should have the right to bury their loved ones in peace. This group crashed the son's funeral and spat out hateful things to further devastate an already grieving family, and now that family has to pay for suing them.

You write that same-sex couples "ought to be extended the same basic human rights that heterosexual couples enjoy, not only to encourage loving, committed and financially stable relationships that are the backbone of any community but particularly for the sake of their children" ("The rise of same sex couples," Aug. 12) And Gov. Martin O'Malley wrote in support of the redefinition of marriage, saying, "when shortcomings in our laws bring about a result that is unjust, I have a public obligation to try to change that injustice.

Boston -- The ''granny-dumping'' story took one of those odd twists. One daughter discovered the father apparently deserted by another daughter.In Tennessee, Nancy Kingery Myatt caught John Kingery's picture in the paper. He was the father she had not seen in 28 years. He was the father who ''just slipped away from us,'' after divorce, after remarriage.The father who just slipped away from five children.The pathos in their nursing-home reunion is hard to overstate. A 55-year-old woman tearfully and gratefully greeting an 82-year-old father who could no longer recognize her. ''I didn't have a dad for all those years,'' she said.

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. -- When I was a child, what my father wanted was to dance with me. He would put a nickel in the Wurlitzer jukebox and ask me to "step out" to "Moonlight Serenade." I was shy, awkward and unable to keep track of his feet. At 6, I declined in order to save myself from the uncomfortable moment. What my father wanted was to eat fruit while standing at the kitchen sink. He would lean over the drain with grapefruit juice dripping from his chin. "You're making such a mess," Mama grumbled.

Sitting on a bench toward the rear of a Harford County courtroom Tuesday was a row of well-dressed women determined to send Robert C. Richardson III a message: They've got his back. The four Bel Air women say they're part of a network of support building for the teen, who police say confessed to the Jan. 9 killing of his father. Tuesday, the 16-year-old, represented by a public defender, waived his right to a preliminary hearing and was immediately swept back into custody. The women say they want to pay for a private lawyer to represent Richardson on the first- and second-degree murder charges he faces.

Mamaroneck, N.Y. -- Tiger Woods always seemed destined for something great, something much bigger than a person or a game or a 500-yard hole that doglegs right. His father memorably told Sports Illustrated that Woods would "do more than any other man in history to change the course of humanity." A bit more grandiose than just blasting out of the sand to save par, don't you think? But what was that something? How would Woods transcend sports? By attracting more young people to the game?

BOSTON -- If he were in jail for mass murder, he would have been sprung by now. After all, the DNA evidence proved that he was the wrong man. So how come a man who has been proven scientifically not to be the biological father must go on paying child support? How come the same DNA test that can force one man into paternal obligation can't automatically free another? Last week, a Massachusetts man joined a fraternity that now has members as far flung as Florida and Texas, Georgia and Ohio.

THE POWER of love to overcome the lust for money -- something so rare today -- was demonstrated several months ago at a most unlikely place: a cemetery.It is the custom among most Jews to conduct a memorial service (Kaddish) at the graveside of a loved one, usually a spouse or a parent, within a year after his or her death. At that time, a monument or marker, is dedicated; and this ceremony, conducted by a rabbi, is called an "unveiling."The sky on the afternoon of Nov. 1, 1994, the date of my Uncle Aaron's unveiling, was as gray as the granite tombstones in the graveyard.
