When Kevin Doyle's daughter was 2 years old, she was spry and energetic, but in the space of a week, she went from jumping and skipping to not being able to roll over in her crib without help. Doctors believed it was a virus that would pass, Doyle said, but now at 7 years old, Mercy Doyle is struggling with the same symptoms. She suffers from tremors in her feet and deteriorated muscle coordination. She is unable to walk or crawl. "We've been through four different chemotherapy treatments and some other similar-style stuff that people use for very strong arthritis," Doyle said.

This will be the 22nd year in a row that I've observed Father's Day without my father. I was barely a teenager when he died, yet the memories are still painfully present. I can't help but feel a pang of sadness each year this day comes around and I am reminded once again that my dad isn't here for a card, a breakfast, a ballgame or even a hug. So, I know firsthand that holidays that bring joy to so many often bring sadness to others. Many of us struggle with the loss of our fathers or grandfathers, remembering the happy times together and lamenting their absence and simply missing their love, wisdom and presence.

There has been talk of Jim Rosing going after his coveted sub-three-hour time at Monday's Boston Marathon. But it seems more just like playful teasing between he and his wife, Mollie. The actual general hope is that they run together, husband and wife, and cross the finish line together. It would be another sign of their love. They have four children together. There is love there. There is love that is in their home at the port streets in Corona del Mar, where they moved in August.

NEWPORT BEACH - It's a new year in more ways than one for Laura Wilkening, who is celebrating her 100th birthday Sunday. The Chicago-born centenarian will celebrate with 40 long-time friends and family at her daughter-in-law's house in Newport Beach. But Wilkening has no need for New Year's or birthday resolutions. "I make a resolution every day," said Wilkening, who lives on the Balboa Peninsula. "I'm a determined person. If I'm going to do something, I do it - and that's it. " Maybe that explains how the talkative, upbeat grandmother of five has lived to see so many birthdays.

A little less than four years ago, Paul Briggs gave me a quote that basically summed up what he thought of his life. Briggs, a former Orange Coast College football assistant and a high school coaching legend in Bakersfield, died on Monday at age 90 while in an assisted care facility. He coached for 57 years, including 20 seasons at OCC. At Bakersfield High, he guided the Drillers to a 210-99-15 record. He was such a great mentor to many, and one of my all-time favorite people.

It's a wild morning, pouring rain. At high tide the southwest swell is rolling under the Newport Pier and washing through the dory market, carving out big chunks of beach with each wave. Someone suggests moving the paddle-out to the bay. We confer — there's no time. The memorial service starts at 11. Storm or not, we're going. Six of us are former Newport lifeguards. If the side current washes us all the way to the river jetties, as looks entirely possible, maybe some of the 100 or so friends watching from shore can ferry us back.

SANTA ANA - A prosecutor made clear that Robert Alan Lehmann loved his daughter and wanted her to receive the best possible education and treatment for her development disabilities. But that love and concern ultimately fueled a heated battle between him and his ex-wife, whom he stands accused of shooting dead alongside her father in front of his Costa Mesa home, prosecutors asserted in opening statements Wednesday afternoon. Lehmann, 37, is accused of two counts of murder. The charges include sentencing enhancements for lying in wait and for multiple murders.

A couple of years back, I thought I would die if I had to have one more meeting in a Starbucks, so I set out to find some new places. What I found was Amorelia Mexican Café at 2200 Harbor Blvd. This gem near the corner of Wilson Street sits by Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts Store. Amorelia has become my go-to meeting place. I always order the café de olla — a sweet, rich coffee — and, for lunch, a grilled vegetable salad that is not on the menu but is worth asking for. My favorite thing to eat there is the mole verde; the chicken is so tender, the flavors just perfect.

CINDY TRANE CHRISTESON "Love is the greatest thing that God can give us; for he himself is love: and it is the greatest thing we can give to God." -- JEREMY TAYLOR Last week after church, I walked around the church patio to have a cup of coffee and to connect with some friends. As I waited in line for the coffee, I watched a little girl who was in the line near me, waiting to get some water. She wore a pink and red jumper over a white turtleneck with little red hearts around the neck.

Editor's note: This article first appeared April 28 in the Las Vegas Sun under the headline, "Discover the power of poetry," and is being reprinted here at the request of the author and with the permission of the newspaper. Poetry is a wonder! April was National Poetry Month, which makes this a good time to check it out. A poet knows the wonder of a listener who says, "Your poem about that first kiss? I felt that way too. You really got it there!" There's also wonder in the "capture" of a cherished moment, locked up for eternity.

Q: I don't mean to offend you, but I've tried to read the Bible and found it kind of dull. And yet some of my friends find it exciting. What's wrong? Why don't I get anything out of it? — P.D. A: In reality, the Bible should be the most exciting book you'll ever read! The reason is, this isn't just another book; it is God's Word, and through its pages God speaks to us. Think of it: The Creator of the universe wants to talk to you! What does He want to tell you? First, He wants to tell you about Himself — who He is, what He is like, and what He has done for you. We can understand some things about God by looking at the world He created, but we only fully understand Him by discovering what He's told us in the Bible.

The pride that Newport Beach feels for its police was ever-present during an awards ceremony Friday morning, right down to the event's opening soundtrack: the trumpet-heavy fanfare used in the 1988 Olympics. Composer John Williams' "Olympic Spirit" heralded the start of the 43rd annual Police Appreciation Breakfast within a packed ballroom at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach hotel. The Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce's Commodores Club organized the event. Guest speaker Eileen Frere, Orange County bureau chief for ABC7 Eyewitness News, presented details about each award recipient as Police Chief Jay Johnson and Mayor Rush Hill gave out the honors and posed for photos.

Rick Sparks can still remember the days when people loved Lucy in groups. For that matter, they all loved her at the same time. And though the screen was small by 2014 standards, the gathering before the television felt like a much larger event. "Those few lucky families in the neighborhood that would have the television present, it was a beacon to their neighbors," said Sparks, the co-writer and director of "I Love Lucy Live on Stage. " "And then what my family did, and friends in other neighborhoods, they would all wander over to that person's house.

Valentine's Day didn't end Friday on Balboa Island. On Saturday, about a dozen love letters were taped to the windows of a small cottage tucked just across the island's bridge on Marine Avenue in Newport Beach. The building houses the Balboa Island Museum and Historical Society, and through the weekend, docents are collecting stories like the one that belongs to Summer and Dennis Brees. According to their letter, the two met 28 years ago on the island when Summer's car broke down on the ferry and was pushed onto Agate Avenue.

Q: How do you define "love"? I know it's more than an overwhelming emotional response or being charmed, but I'm not sure what an appropriate definition would be. Can you help me out? — J., Raleigh, N.C. * A: This is a wonderful Valentine's Day/Beatles 50th Ed Sullivan anniversary question.

Hollie Vilander knows her husband, Eric, has a history of extravagant gestures on Valentine's Day, but this year, he had an early morning meeting in Ventura and had to leave their Huntington Beach home at 4:30 a.m. Friday. So Hollie went to work early herself to lay out some Valentines on her co-workers' desks in Newport Beach. As she turned in to the driveway of her Corona del Mar office, she looked up and thought, "Holy smokes, there's a huge banner with my name. " Hollie threw the car into reverse, stared up and started crying.
