Thirty-seven percent of women polled rely on friends and family for retirement planning advice, according to a survey released today by Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies. That's great if your friend or relative is investment guru Warren Buffet or a financial whiz. Otherwise, you could be just following in a friend's moves - mistakes and all. Catherine Collinson, president of the center for retirement studies, says she was surprised by how many women rely on friends and family for retirement-related information.

All weddings must confront the inevitable: Who do you invite? Ever since our engagement in November 2013, my fiancé and I have received dozens of requests to come to our wedding. But as the future wedded couple, we are bound by money and space. Our friends and family expect invitations, an open bar and free entertainment.   Sure, I would love to have a big party where I invite everyone I know, but this is a wedding, not a barbeque. Deciding who may come and if they may bring a guest inevitably becomes a priority list of who's close to your heart.

Horrific as the crime was, the fact that a Baltimore judge last week accepted Alexander Kinyua's plea of "guilty but not criminally responsible" in connection with the brutal beating of a classmate last May doesn't come completely as a surprise. Although successful insanity pleas are rare, Circuit Judge Gale E. Rasin said she accepted Mr. Kinyua's after finding "overwhelming" evidence he was suffering from a serious mental illness at the time of his offense. What the judge's ruling did not resolve, however, was why no one else seemed to notice Mr. Kinyua was going off the rails, or if they did, why they apparently did not get him help or warn others.

That old adage is true: There's nothing worse than losing a child. I discovered this a year ago when we laid our beautiful daughter Rachel to rest after a long illness. She was 28. Having lost parents and in-laws, I thought I understood everything about grief. I was wrong. Over the past year, I've learned things about losing a child that have become touchstones. Though I'm still grappling with my new reality, I feel compelled to share some observations that provide a partial answer to thoughtful friends and family who frequently ask: "So, how are you doing?"

ST. MICHAELS // The center hall is a remarkable, 60-foot alley that shotguns the strong breezes of the eastern Chesapeake Bay straight through the main house. Marilyn Hannigan spied it through the dusty windows of the double front doors and fell in love. That was 25 years ago. She and husband John had been visiting in nearby Sherwood on Maryland's Eastern Shore, and their friends -- still there and still friends -- said there might be a little ramshackle something down the road that they might like.

On Monday morning, the academy held a funeral service for Navy Lt. Myron Emanuel Ludvick II, 27, a graduate student who collapsed and died April 18 after a 1.5-mile run on Farragut Field for a routine fitness readiness test.

ELKTON -- Ed Hoffman says he stood over the bed of his sleeping wife for a half-hour, a loaded shotgun in his hands, watching in the pre-dawn darkness as she tossed and turned in her nightgown. When she nestled into just the right position, he put the barrel against her head and pulled the trigger, killing her instantly. Then it was his turn to complete what he says was a murder-suicide pact between him and his wife of 44 years. But first he had to take care of some details. He went to his computer and composed and sent an e-mail to 70 friends and relatives, a matter-of-fact recounting of their loving marriage and desire to take charge of their own deaths.

Anna's House, a transitional housing program for homeless women and children, now boasts a beautiful memorial garden donated by the friends and family of Kay and Meagan Glancy. Kay and her daughter, Meagan, were volunteers at Anna's House. After Kay lost Meagan, 21, in a tragic car accident, Kay decided to plan a memorial garden for her at Anna's House. Unfortunately, Kay passed away seven months later and was unable to see the memorial realized, but her family and friends completed the project and dedicated it in both of their memories.

I got engaged a few of weeks ago. My fiancé took me to the park with our dog and proposed to me by rocks overlooking the Loch Raven Reservoir. This is a very special place for us, and he even laid out roses (who knew he could be such a romantic?).  After the excitement of realizing that I had just gotten engaged, I was so anxious to tell the world but I knew I couldn't just yet!  Social media is popular these days but it is so important that any important news you may have be shared with your loved ones before the Internet.  It can be hurtful for friends and family members to find out about your engagement through Facebook, although it does happen quite often.

Forgetting what day it was and unaware of her son's new-found love of pranks, Rodgers Forge resident Kim Morton walked unsuspectingly into the kitchen one morning and found herself soaked. "I came downstairs dressed nicely for work," she says of that April 1st. "I cleaned up the breakfast dishes and walked to the sink. Using a rubber band and toothpick, [my son] had rigged it so when you turned the faucet on, the water came out right at chest level. " A change of clothes later, Morton says she and her husband, Will, were smiling.

It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game - in this case, the game show "Jeopardy!" Tom Lynn, of Radnor-Winston, played so well that a crowd of 50 family members, friends and former colleagues and classmates gave him a standing ovation Monday evening at the Zen West cantina on York Road, where they gathered at his invitation to watch the taped show on a big-screen TV. Lynn, who taped his appearance in November, was prohibited contractually...

As expected, the Maryland General Assembly voted to abolish capital punishment ("Ending executions," March 19). Leftism is the most dynamic and vibrant religion in the West today. In all areas of life, from morals to education, economics and art, it is replacing the traditional American Judeo-Christian value system. The Leftist ideology says it is elevated, just, compassionate and kind to allow all murderers to retain their most precious possession, their life. Hence, they think they are kind and just to the next group of murdered kindergartners, their families and friends, when the savage murderer sits and has lunch in prison.

A few feet from the small, white casket that held her grandson's body, the woman sat in a wheelchair, her arm in a sling, and wept. Marjorie Thomas had been pushing her 3-year-old grandson, Elijah Cozart, in a stroller near his Baltimore County home when a pickup truck struck them both. The driver did not stop, and the truck dragged the boy in his stroller for nearly a mile. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. Yesterday, as friends and family members gathered for Elijah's funeral, they spoke of trying to see God's plan in his death.

When she heard Mercy Medical Center was going to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day on Sunday, Megan Campbell knew she had to be there. The doctors and nurses at Mercy are, after all, the reason her two kids got to know their grandmother. The six years since her mother, Priscilla "Jo" Jones, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Campbell said, have meant the world to her family. At the time, Campbell was pregnant, and she wasn't even sure Jones would see the birth of her first grandchild.

I enjoy reading the various editorials and commentaries published in The Sun, but I was especially moved by Dee Wright's op-ed describing the life and death of Mary Hines ("Where was Mary Hines' 'village'?" Jan. 16). Ms. Hines, an 84-year-old retired educator who was destitute and in need, was murdered. I'm left with the same questions as Ms. Wright: What did Ms. Hines' so-called friends and family do to help in her final years of heartache and pain? Not much. Talk is cheap!
