Sorry to hear about Shorty, he is free of pain and resting. Our class has lost a lot due to cancer, what a shame.
RIP to All

I've known Shorty since elementary school, back when we called him Mike.  I remember when Shorty and Jeff had their accident that ended Jeff's life and left Shorty paralyzed.  It was a tragic day, but a new beginning for Shorty and all those whose lives he touched and helped.  Now he can finally run and jump again.  Fly free, my friend.

I'm so sad we've lost Shorty, but relieved he isn't suffering anymore.  My thoughts and prayers are with his family...may God's light perpetual shine on him.sad

              Shorty, not hardly he was a Giant of a man. When I first met him there was this fearless little guy. And after his accident he seemed to come back bigger than life. And later in life he proved that it was not ego. It was his big personality and refusal to give up he didn’t know I can’t. And later in life he proved it more and more every day. And he passed that way of living on to so many.
