Remembering Kiki

Jeff Garretson - February 26, 2016 12:38 pm

From Sharp Graphics Facebook page

Dave Sharp is a former police officer who served in western Kansas and said he always looked for those who needed a hand in the community.

He has not changed as a business owner in north Salina.

Sharp stopped by the KSAL Morning News on Friday, hoping the community will join him in lending a hand to the family who is grieving the loss of a 3-year-old boy known as Kiki by friends and family.

“I had a customer back about a year and a half ago, JC come in and he’s a good customer and he came in and said I need some help,” Sharp said.

The man went on to ask Sharp to help them set up a memorial fund at Sharp Graphics, for the family who lost a child in a fire Wednesday at the Del Ray Mobile Estates on N. 13th.

Sharp invited listeners to pitch in cash donations for Kiki’s family to help them move forward.

“It’s a tragedy in this town that parents, grandparents don’t want to see.”

For his part, Sharp is printing and donating special T-shirts for family members with Kiki’s photo on them.

“It’s an honor and I hope it can bring closure to the family somehow as they remember Kiki.”

The family has set up a Memorial Fund at Sharp Graphics, located at 501 N. 9th Street to remember Kiki Hargrove and help his family in this time of need.

I wanted to bring to the attention of everyone. A member of the 917 N 13th trailer park family is responsible for the rescue of the 3 survivors of yesterday’s tragedy. He has suffered some pretty significant burn’s to his upper body. And is having a hard time coping with the fact that he tried to go back in the 2nd time to get Keke but was unable to reach him due to the flames and smoke. So if you all see him please let him know how much of a HERO he is. And thank him for his valiant effort. Not only him but the 3 others that risked their lives as well trying to get to Keke. I for one thank you all for the tremendous amount of heroism it took to do what you did. THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU!
