In Memory of “Kiko” While in the Dominican Republic Maritza and Eva were especially excited to visit with Kiko, his brother, David, and their best friend, Braulio; the three boys they had met two years ago, who served as the inspiration to create the Shorter- Harris Foundation. While there, they were saddened to hear the news that Kiko had past away exactly a year ago from they day of their arrival. Maritza and Eva were able to meet with Braulio and paid a special visit with Kiko’s mother and family.
