My deepest condolences to Ellen and the Costello family. I always smiled when I heard Bob's voice coming into the office, as he did for many years before me. His wit was so sharp and extensive that I usually didn't even realize he was being serious until moments later. He was always light years ahead of the game. Just loved speaking with him. He asked me a few times "what's the name of your homegroup" and I would tell him as if to insinuate he would stop out sometime. And, he did! Not only that, after the meeting he was outside and introduced me to a new person. What an example. He will be sorely missed.

What impressed me about Bob was that with all his years of sobriety, he kept coming to meetings - talking with the new person, etc. He could have sat back (lolling in the Florida sunshine), but he didn't. What a great power of example!!!
