~~In Memory of~~
~September 11, 2001~
On September 11, 2001, Brother Costello rushed into the Trade Center after
the first plane hit, in order to rescue passengers that may have been
trapped in the elevators. Chuck is as much of a hero as the fire fighters
and police. There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for
another. Brother Costello will be sorely missed, and never forgotten.
