    My condolences to the Costello family. I just had a great quadruple bypass or I would come to services. Please accept my prayers.

    I was sadden to hear about Billy - then I started remembering all the good times we had growing up and later following him around to craft shows. His favorite saying to Bob was "There is a Costello around every corner". Our deepest sympathy to all of Billy's family and friends
