So sorry to hear of Shorty's passing. We were great friends for many years Knew him since I was a teenager. He was a great friend to my parents, Ofie & Tino, as was his wife, June. My husband and I had many great times with Shorty and June and then came David, their son, Tom and I were like his aunt and uncle.
