In the mind of her mother, Eleanor “Ellè” Kelly is not gone.
“There are some spirits that just won’t go away, and hers is one of them,” Cynthia Lowe said Tuesday. The Harlem girl who had just turned 13 was shot in the face Thursday. On Sunday, her mother donated her organs to six other children.
“I know that’s what Ellè would want,” her mother said. “That’s what Ellè would demand.”
Zach Provance, 14, was charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the shooting, which the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office ruled accidental.
