Summer Goldy, 16, says Joshua Stepp, 16, of Walnutport, was her best friend in kindergarten through third grade, right up until she and her family moved away from Walnutport. When she heard that her friend had been fatally shot during an attempted burglary while visiting friends in Mt. Morris, Michigan on June 11, she just couldn't believe something like that happened.
When she heard the family needed $2,000 to bring his body home, the first thing she thought was, "I have to donate."
She approached her mother, Pat Ohl of Lehighton and said, "We have to do something."
