GREENSBURG — Two couples killed in a southeastern Indiana plane crash last weekend are being remembered all together during a funeral Friday at their community's high school.

WRTV and WISH-TV report hundreds of people waited in long lines Thursday evening for visitation hours in Greensburg for Donald and Barbara Horan and friends Stephen and Denise Butz.

The four were returning from Florida when the small plane Donald Horan was piloting crashed Sunday night near the Greensburg airport amid foggy and misty conditions.

Family friend Amy Kinker says the large turnout was a tribute to the couples who were active in the community.

The funeral Mass is being held in the Greensburg High School gymnasium, with burial at St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery in Greensburg.
