I will never forget the one cold day that Nick and my dad, Frank Costa, went out to play a round of golf! It was like 40 degrees and you both had warm stocking hats, gloves and heavy coats on trying to beat each other! As I was taking pictures of the both of you, I just saw the friendship in both your eyes and the fun you had that day. You both had the love for the game and I am sure you both are in Heaven now getting ready to play another round. Our sincere condolences to the entire Cappellino family. Love,Shirley and Bryan Callan and Family.
