I hope whoever stole the lanterns from my husband’s grave in Allentown cemetery is reading this. You have no morals.

My grandson, who was very close to his grandfather, put those on his grave. I never thought they would be stolen. It is despicable!

What goes around comes around, so one day something like this may happen to you or someone you love. Then and only then will you know how you hurt us.

You should be ashamed of yourself. If you want to correct this wrong, please put them back.
