THE FAMILY OF Bryn Mawr native Sunil Tripathi turned yesterday's tragic news into a moment of reflection, hoping "Sunny's" death would make us all a little more aware of one another. "This last month has changed our lives forever, and we hope it will change yours, too," the Tripathi family wrote in a short letter yesterday. "Take care of one another. Be gentle, be compassionate. Be open to letting someone in when it is you who is faltering. Lend your hand. We need it. The world needs it. " A body found Tuesday floating in the Providence River was positively identified as Tripathi yesterday after a forensic-dental examination, said Dara Chadwick, a spokeswoman for the Rhode Island Department of Health.

A surveillance video has given the family a sliver of hope, but two weeks after Sunil Tripathi disappeared, investigators say they are no closer to solving the mystery of what happened to him. "We don't have a direction, we don't have a possible area," said Detective Mark Sacco of the Providence, R.I., Police Department. "That is the strange part of the case - it starts and ends in his room. " The 2008 Radnor High School graduate was last seen March 16 by his housemates near Brown University.

Peggy Philp, 86, never even considered living in a nursing home when she was younger, but, after surviving breast cancer and a "slight" heart attack, she found she needed one. She also found it much homier than many her age expect. At WillowBrooke Court in Fort Washington, she got to bring the figurines she has collected and the portrait she painted of her late husband, who died in 1983. In the picture on her wall, he is a young man with soulful brown eyes. "As long as I live, he will not die," she says.

Tripathi is one of 2,000 people expected to attend Out of the Darkness, a 17-mile walk to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

" The report's suggestions include formalizing the university's position on diversity, creating plans within academic departments for recruiting a range of students and faculty, and establishing benchmarks to be monitored on a regular basis.

And along the way, the family of Sunil "Sunny" Tripathi learned invaluable lessons from an ordeal that bonded them more deeply and led them to redefine their goals and objectives. Sitting at that very same kitchen table in their Center City home last week, Sangeeta and Ravi Tripathi recounted their brother's disappearance, their intensive search, and how those events ended up playing out on a worldwide stage.
