The funeral service for Mr. Shortt was indeed a celebration of his life. The eulogy was so good, warm, touching and showed much love. The readings were done so well by the grandchildren. The priest was wonderful, too.

It was very moving being there and sharing our grief with so many of Mr. Shortt's loved ones and friends. He has touched and benefited more people than you will ever know. We are sad that he has passed on but are grateful to have known him for this short time here on earth.

Our hearts go out to each of his family members and we wish you peace.

With love and sympathy,

Linda Troy and Sean O'Toole

They say that when an old man leaves this world, a library burns. In Uncle John's case, it's several of them gone, along with our beloved friend and wise counselor.

We're thinking of him, and of all of you, with love, and will remember you all in our prayers.

With love from Andrea, Mary Margaret and Christian

To Richard, Sinead, Nicola, Brendan and John's other family members:

We are so sad and sorry about the passing of John Shortt, a wonderful and loving man. We have great memories of him, a knowledgeable man with a good sense of humour. He always had nice things to say about everybody.

One memory that immediately comes to mind is enjoying his company at the O'Toole Family Christmas Get-Together at Maura and Jackie's home on December 26, 2004. He was so much fun, full of life and a great conversationalist.

It is so nice to treasure such memories, sadder to think of how he unfairly suffered with bad health for so many agonizing years.

We are so very sorry for the loss of your loved one and share in your grief. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

With love and sympathy,
Sean O'Toole and Linda Troy

To All of Johns's Children,

Deepest sympathy on the death of your beloved father. I have such tender memories of our families growing up together. Saturday evenings with our parents (and their friends) singing Irish songs and reminiscing about the old country. And at the same time being so excited about being in Canada and starting their new lives here. And all of us kids sitting on the stairs listening and sneaking down to snatch treats!

Your mother and father were great friends of my parents and your dad was always there when my own father needed assistance over the years. I know that my mom visited John when he was at Providence Villa and at True Davidson for as long as she was able to. She had a special place for him in her heart.

I know how hard it is to lose a much loved parent and I know your dad was much loved by all of you and that he loved you a thousand times over and was so proud of each of you.

Love to you all. Maureen Adams and Family xoxo
