Costello's family asks for donations to NAMI in lieu of flowers

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla._Funeral services and a candlelight vigil have been scheduled for Oklahoma Labor Commissioner Mark Costello and his family has a special request.

Mark Costello was killed Sunday after being stabbed to death by his 26-year-old son. His family is asking people wishing to offer condolences to make donations to an Oklahoma organization instead of sending flowers.

"It is our family's preference that you consider a gift to the National Alliance on Mental Illness Oklahoma. This is something that Mark would have desired and is a fitting way to honor his memory," the family said in a press release.

The funeral will be held at St. Monica Catholic Church, 2001 N Western Ave., Edmond, OK 73012, Saturday at 10:00 a.m.

The family says you can include with your donation that it is to remember Mark and his dedication to helping others. Donations can be made online here.

Donations may also be made to:  

NAMI Oklahoma
Attn: Costello Family Memorial
3037 NW 63rd, Ste.
104 W Oklahoma City, OK
