A native of western Massachusetts, Kevin Riordan received a degree in journalism from Syracuse University. His first newspaper job was at the Cherry Hill News, a Gannett-owned weekly.  At the Courier Post, he was the one-man bureau in Camden for eight years and also held a number of other high-profile jobs. He left the paper in 2007 and became vice president for communications for Volunteers of America of the Delaware Valley.

Robert Goodman says a new heart hasn't made him a new man. Not yet, anyway. "I haven't quite gotten to the point of waking up every day and saying, 'I'm glad I'm alive,' although I do think about that," says the Westampton resident, 62.
My mother died on March 23, 2013, less than a month before her 83d birthday. She took her leave as I was driving back to Massachusetts, to the nursing facility where she spent the sad last months of her life.
