Walt "Ozzie" Ostrowski was a favorite among reporters covering the Hatboro-Horsham High School boys' basketball team. He was quick with a colorful quote, never at a loss for words, and would talk at length about his team and players. Ostrowski's wife of 37 years, Margo, also saw the impact Ozzie had on those outside the basketball world. "Every place he went into, he lit it up," she said. "He had a way of making every person he met feel special. " Ozzie Ostrowski, 57, died Monday afternoon at the family's Warrington home.

Sean Sanchirico has simple aspirations at this stage of his life: take classes at Rutgers Camden, spend time with family and friends, improve his game as a member of the Scarlet Raptors golf team. "Just be a normal college student," Sanchirico said, setting the bar at a level that always seemed unattainable in recent years. In one way, the 20-year-old from Haddon Township has made good on his goal. His days are pretty pedestrian for a popular pre-business major who can be found many afternoons at the Camden County Golf Academy driving range on Cooper River in Pennsauken.

Like many gay men and lesbians, Paul P. has always had mixed feelings about the holidays. He is happy for the time to spend with his sister and her husband, his brothers and their wives, the nieces and nephews. But as a gay man not out to his family, Paul always felt a little uncomfortable at the family get-togethers, too. While everyone was trading stories about what happened at work and school and home, Paul always had to be careful to edit out anything that might hint he was gay. When it came to his personal life, he was silent, or worse, he felt compelled to lie. And of course, he never brought anyone special around for the family gatherings.

CHICAGO - Sue and Ben Erickson thought they were prepared after learning that their baby could be born with physical or mental disabilities. An ultrasound during the 36th week of pregnancy revealed an excess of cerebral fluid on the unborn infant's brain, but the young Huntley couple quickly accepted that God must have a special plan. They were overjoyed when Matthew Donald Erickson emerged from the womb on Dec. 11 in seemingly great form at just over six pounds.

WE INTERRUPT my usual "You gotta do better, people!" rant with a column full of gratitude. I know . . . let's embrace the fleeting moment. It was kind of a nutty idea, I admit. But after hearing Jennifer Pownall's story, I couldn't resist. The Northeast Philly mom was diagnosed with three meningioma brain tumors last year. Sometimes, she told me, music was the only thing that got her through the pain. So, she created the Rock Out Brain Tumors Air Guitar Challenge to raise money for the National Brain Tumor Society by asking people to make videos of themselves rocking out for a good cause.
