Homeless shelter to be created in memory of Emily Elkins

Emily Elkins of Rock Hill died last week but her legacy will live on with the shelter for families who need emergency housing. The teenager became a celebrity after her cancer donation jar was stolen but she forgave the man who did it. Now, her family wants to meet the man and tell him he is forgiven and that what he did was part of God’s plan for Emily to help others.

Hundreds pack funeral for inspirational Rock Hill teen

Hundreds of people packed Rock Hill’s First Baptist Church on Tuesday to celebrate the life of Emily Elkins. The crowd was white and black and Asian and Hispanic, people who live in trailers and in big houses on the hill. They all came for one reason – to say goodbye to a 16-year-old girl who squeezed every drop of life out of the little time she had.
