Grew up with Shorty. He was a good childhood friend and we spent a lot of time at his house, or in the barn, or fishing in their pond, or at the creek. We had some good times together. He didn’t always look like it, but he was always friendly, happy, and just a nice person, always eager to offer a helping hand or just be your friend. He’ll be missed here but Heaven just aquire a friend.

Shorty and my granddaughter were good buddies. In between hospital stays while she was home he’d walk down and bring her flowers are some little something. Last Halloween he brought her a pumpkin. So when she was home and feeling good we’d jump on the gator and drive down to his house and she’d take him a new hat once in awhile. First time we did I introduced him to Willow as “Marlin”. He knelt down, looked her in the eye and told her “I’m not Marlin, I’m Shorty”. She smiled and after that it was “Shorty”. Every time we drove by and she saw him outside she’d say “look papa, it’s Shorty”. I know she was one of many waiting at the gate to welcome him!
