FAMILY COMES first at Remnant Ministries, the Las Vegas church where former Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham serves as pastor. "The family unit is the most important unit in the universe," the church's Web site states. "Healthy families are the closest thing to heaven on earth. " Cunningham's universe was shattered late Tuesday afternoon when his youngest son accidentally drowned in the family's back-yard hot tub - the same tub in which Cunningham, an ordained minister, reportedly performs baptisms.

LORRAINE WILLIAMS pored over numerous college applications with her son, Tyree Parks, desperate for him to escape the dangers that waited for him outside their door every day in their corner of South Philadelphia. She knew college was her 18-year-old son's one-way ticket out of the world that had claimed the life of her eldest son eight years earlier. So she was relieved when an acceptance letter came Friday from Bloomsburg University, and she was set to begin counting down the days until he left.

One night, in Larry and Nina's room, a mural grew. A joyful procession - a dog, two boys, two birds, a lion, a girl, a bear, and a sun - was being painted by a dear family friend, who spread paper and paint jars on the floor and sometimes stood on their beds to work. It was 1961, and the family friend - Uncle Moo Moo - was Maurice Sendak, 33. Fifty years later, the mural - in two hefty slabs - has made its way from the 13th-floor apartment overlooking Manhattan's Central Park to a new home: the Rosenbach Museum and Library in Center City, which houses Sendak's papers, books, art, and ephemera.

Theirs is an old-fashioned partnership and one that has spanned 60 years of marriage. In fact, today is their 60th wedding anniversary.

In the last week, his stepson Michael Murphy may have felt a jolt of deja vu. A flurry of media attention and plaudits for his television commercials have raised Murphy's profile just days ahead of Tuesday's Democratic gubernatorial primary. Could the long shot be catching up?
