SPOKANE, Wash.--Spokane Valley Fire stations are taking donations for Toys for Tots in honor of one of two University High School students killed in a car crash on Saturday.
The wreck killed sophomores McKenzie Mott and Josie Freier. The driver, 16-year-old Preston Maher, was released from the hospital today.
“I want to apologize for not having a bigger list of things they can do. There are so many things I want to help do, but I don't know what to ask,” said Freier.
Freier said his wife found a notebook filled with more than 70 pages of biblical quotes, song lyrics and thoughts that belonged to Josie.
“What I learned about her from that notebook makes me want to scream from the top of the world…holding that thing and saying, this is my kid,” said Freier.
Freier said his family harbors no ill feelings towards Preston Maher, the driver of the vehicle. He said he prays for Maher and his family.
“They’ve got a great son,” said Freier.
A memorial service for Josie has been set for Friday, October 11 at 1:00 p.m. It will be held at Valley Fourth Memorial Church near 23rd and Bowdish. The family asks you do not wear black.
