Tremendous loss. Shorty was one of a kind, I got to know him well later on in life, and as privileged as I felt, I still regretted not getting to know him sooner than I did. I was in a very tough spot one Saturday afternoon, years ago, and unsolicited-Shorty took this problem I was dealing with, a problem that seemed so monumentous to me, insurmountable in fact, and he steam rolled it, like it was nothing- he stepped in, took up for me and crushed this problem line it was nothing, because to a man like that, who’d faced down what he had, it was nothing. The entire time never ceasing to keep me at ease by being himself.

I never forgot it, I never will. I’m eternally grateful. I’ll miss you Shorty, thank you for being my friend.
