I send my sincere condolences to Aunt Ruth, David, Jim and Diane. Uncle Shorty was a wonderful man who had a terrific sense of humor that was very memorable. I won't forget his green thumb for beautiful flowers in his backyard at Jenison. Thoughts of Shorty bring forward many wonderful memories of his life - caring for family and friends, travel, fun at the Lake during winter and summer seasons, snowmobiling, and holiday gatherings. Peace be with all of you, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Susan
