Say it a third time! Nice try, princess. Those two were from Greensburg. That would be like someone from Harrisburg acting up at a Phillies game, and people blaming Philly. Dunkin donuts coupons

To the children and grandchildren of Arvel and Evelyn: We deeply miss both of these sweet souls. We were neighbors and friends for many years in the Roy neighborhood. We loved to visit them and still picture them both in their easy chairs in the living room of their beautiful home. They were more than friends, they were like another set of parents to us. Our sorrow for your loss.
