  1. You will always live on in our hearts, memories and spirit.

    I love Your steady, understanding, inquisitive and kind ways. I admire the simple gratefulness of giving thanks before every meal, your open minded conversations through all the stages of our lives and taking me under your wing as a baby. If there was one grandpa Short for every million other people, this world would be undoubtedly such a kinder and more beautiful place.
    The way you looked at the reality of life and death was so comforting and peaceful you are a constant source of learning and inspiration to be a more just, real and a better person. Knowing you are at peace is the ultimate. Thankyou for using your life to show us how to live ours better. Your great grand kids will learn what you taught. Rest in peace you great man.
    Love Michael, Laura
    Xena and Axel
