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.

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.

ROCKVILLE -- Last spring's triple slaying in Silver Spring shocked investigators and neighbors, who wondered who could kill 8-year-old Trevor Horn by disconnecting the quadriplegic life-support system, and shoot the boy's mother and nurse in the head.Yesterday, police offered an even more shocking tale, charging the boy's father with contracting out the grisly murders to a storefront minister from Detroit.The motive, police said: Trevor's estate, worth at least $1 million -- money he received as part of a medical malpractice suit.

ATLANTA -- Georgetown, its coach, John Thompson III, told reporters yesterday, is "the son-of team." He quickly added, "And look, Florida might be the son-of team also." Ohio State might also fit that description, except only one of its players is a "son of." Poor UCLA, then. The Bruins are the only participants in the Final Four without a player whose father's name is instantly recognizable - as an athlete, and most likely as a basketball player. How'd they crash the family picnic? The better question is: How did the other three teams manage this, to get so much from the sons of highly accomplished fathers?

Washington -- Fatherhood is full of surprises, big and small. There is the special thrill that comes on one's way to the bathroom in the dark of the night after one's bare foot has stepped on a tiny little ''power sword'' held aloft by a tiny little plastic Power Ranger action figure.There is the singular amazement one experiences after discovering how many chocolate-flavored Cocoa Puffs tiny hands have stuffed into the floppy disk drive of one's home computer.But nothing surprises a dad more than the strange out-of-body experience that comes when you hear yourself saying to your son something from your own lips that you swore you would never say, as your own father said the very same thing years ago.Now that the future Nobel Prize-winner Grady Jonathan Page has turned 5 (my, how time flies)

I know everyone has a story about the first person they loved. My story is different. My first love was my father -- boxer Rudolph Valentino Watkins Sr. My father is the first man who instilled in me what a man or what a gentleman is all about. My dad would always have these different sayings, such as, "A man has nothing but his word. If a man does not keep his word then he is not a true man." I did not understand what he meant as a child, but as I matured I grew to know what he meant.

Occasionally, when I'm walking down the street, I'll spot a man and think: He looks like my father.I'm never quite sure what it is in these men that reminds me of my father. A tilt of the head, perhaps. Or a slightly amused expression around the eyes. Someone, perhaps, who telegraphs sense of pleasure about the state of being alive.One reason for my uncertainty about identifying the similarities between such men and my father is that I don't have a clear memory of what my father looked like.
