Family and friends gathered in a downtown Greenville park on May 16 to honor the memory of Sean Kennedy on the first anniversary of his murder. His mother, Elke Kennedy, has campaigned tirelessly in the past year to educate the public and to promote passage of hate crimes legislation in South Carolina. She established Sean’s Last Wish Foundation to further that work.
After an emotional ceremony, the crowd filed down to the Falls Park bridge and dropped daisies into the Reedy River.
