Father & Children Killed in Fire Laid to Rest

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A huge crowd turns out to remember a Kansas City father and his two young children. They died in a house fire in South  Kansas City earlier this week.

During Saturday’s service, Christopher Greve was remembered as a loving father and husband. His daughter and son were remembered as typical children who adored their grandparents and loved playing outside.

“I just broke down in tears when I heard about it Wednesday morning,” said co-worker Pandora Davis.

People gathered to share heart-felt condolences for Greve, 31 and his two children, Donnica, seven-years-old and Brinton, two-years-old.

When the fire happened on Wednesday, Greve’s wife Shyla was at work. She rushed home to try to save her family but the flames were too intense.

“I have a son that’s nine and one that’s six,” said classmate Annie Brunner. “My husband and I couldn’t imagine living without my kids and my family knowing that they burned in a traumatizing death.”

Saturday, a band played several of Greve’s favorite songs. Photos that weren’t destroyed beamed across a big screen during a memorial at Lifequest Church in Belton. Shyla, the grieving mother and wife was on the minds of many.

“Her family is gone so I know I need to be around her because it’s gonna take time to adjust,” said Cheryl Cartwright, Greve’s employer.
