    I met Mark at THS in the fall of 1969. There were many folks in his circle of friends and they were all kind enough to let me in. As we grew up our interest in motorcycles grew and we all had to have one. We would ride around at night until we passed both cruisers and then speed up!! Such fun! In times like this we look back at the last time we saw Mark. I know when that was. Life is in some ways is short but knowing Mark blessed mine. Curt

    Even though I hadn’t seen Mark since our graduation in 1974 my memories of his smile, his positive attitude and his encouraging words are still fresh in my mind. I thought of him every year as our birthdays were only one day apart. Rest in peace my friend and know that you left an impact on those you encountered. God Bless

    Cheryl, Mr. Costello, and all of Mark’s family – I’m so sorry for your loss. Mark was an unforgettably sweet young boy, and a classmate for 12 years who always had a kind word and sincere smile for all. He was one of the good guys. Rest in peace, dear Mark.

    Mark and I worked together for 10 years at Iris/Lotus/IBM. He was my partner and lab buddy for the Notes Domain servers. He was always there backing me up and pushing me forward when needed. He smiled often and never complained. We enjoyed cranking up the music over the server noise in the Westford lab. We shared many struggles and laughs, and I will never forget that time of comradery in my life. Shine on you crazy diamond…always! Tammy

    Love and condolences to Mr. Costello, Cheryl and Mark’s family. Growing up with Mark and Cheryl from a very young age we were more like siblings than friends. The lines were blurred when it came to knowing which house we lived in because we spent so much time together. So many happy memories💞
