on behalf of Teresa Short
The East Side lost one of the best this week with the sudden passing of David Short. We on the East Side are raising funds, in lieu of funerary flowers, for the family to use in the upcoming days, weeks, and months. All donations will be given directly to the Shorts, who are free to use the funds for grief counseling, medical bills, legal services, or any other way they see fit. We know this is small consolation in light of great loss, but we hope it helps us honor David's legacy.

Please feel free to leave kind thoughts and words which will be given to the family. 

Rest in peace, David.

ALSO-there is no real set amount--we are just hoping to raise as much as we can.

Thanks!

--this campaign is organized by Scecina Memorial High School alumni, Little Flower parishioners, and other members of the East Side Family. --

Hello All,
This campaign has now been closed.

The Shorts wanted to send a message of gratitude to everyone who offered donations, prayers, kind words, and more:

To all those who've so generously contributed to this fund --

We don’t have words to express our gratitude for each of you during this tragedy in our lives. We’ve never imagined a time when we’d be the recipient of a “GoFundMe” account and yet the time is here. You cannot know our gratitude as we had not planned for a day such as this. The overwhelming support from each of you, our family and friends, our Eastside community and our faith families has touched our hearts and souls with so much light and love. Thank you as well to the entire Jockamo's family - owners, employees and patrons - your love and support has meant so much, particularly with each story you've shared of David's time there.

We'll remember this feeling for the rest of our lives and are beyond grateful each and every time.

Our love to each of you,
The Shorts

___________________________________________
And from the Eastside Kids --

Thank you all for your thoughtful and loving generosity in support of the Shorts and the Kimmells over the past few weeks.

Your kindness – heard through so many memories shared, seen by countless heartfelt and comforting words posted on this site and elsewhere, and given in an incredible outpouring of donations – has truly been felt by David's family during this time.

These funds will help the Shorts to cover all funeral and burial expenses, as well as to provide the opportunity for the family to be able to attend counseling together, as they continue to grieve and remember David in the days to come.

To the community of friends and family that came together during this time, thank you for honoring him and for celebrating his insatiable, beautiful love of life and people. Thank you for cherishing and sharing your love of David by extending the friendship and love he showed to so many – to your family, friends, and soon-to-be-friends. From the Eastside of Indianapolis, to wherever you may call home, his memory will always live on in the kindness we show to one another.

Cannot say THANK YOU enough to the amazing community that has come out and supported this family in their time of need. The donations and kind words have exceeded any of our expectations.

The campaign will continue until May 5, 2019, so if you are able to share this link with others who may be able to help, please do so by that date.

David's services are being held today and tomorrow. Please keep The Shorts, Kimmels, and East Side community in your prayers.

Thank you!
