All of the Callahan kids were my family. To us, they were “Uncle Jack” and “Aunt Diane” and all of the kids were our sisters and brother! The many family vacations we spent together in Fall River, Cape Cod, and areas surrounding Whitney Point will always be some of my best childhood memories. Poor Mark! Always outnumbered by all of us girls! I’m sure Mark was greeted warmly In Heaven by his sweet sister “Crispy Critter” and Aunt Diane, and best of all, he struggles for breath no more. We love you Mark.
