Mom of murder victim meets organ recipient

An event highlighting organ donation brought together the mother of an Appleton murder victim and the man who received her son's heart.

Twenty-five-year-old Joshua Richards of Green Bay was shot, inside Luna Lounge, last December.

Jackie Pische was at Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah yesterday. She says it's a bittersweet day, since it's only been about six months since they were at the hospital with her son, and they received word that he wasn't going to make it.

Ben Adler of Illinois got Richards' heart, and he says Pische reaches out to him, through letters and Facebook. He says he hopes yesterday is just one day of a long friendship.

Richards' donated organs went to seven people.
