The Short Family Memorial Fund

With an extremely heavy heart I want to tell my family and friends here on FB that my husband, Steven passed away. He is my soulmate, my rock and my everything! I cannot believe he is gone. I am utterly devastated and I could use a lot of prayers. Not just for me but for our girls. I wish I could hug and kiss you one more time. I love you baby. I hope you're with Christopher. Until we see each other again. I know you'll keep an eye on me and our little girls.

My husband was a dedicated father and husband who worked hard to provide for us. Steve served our country in the US Navy for 20 years with honor. Recently he worked with the US Air Force doing what he loved, working on flight simulators. He was great at it and loved by all his coworkers. He meant everything to our family. He was our rock, MY rock and my best friend. There really are no words to describe the pain we feel. Our only hope is that we can survive this tragedy with some sort of ease as we transition to a life without him. I don't like asking for help but I realize I can not do this alone with two baby girls. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and God Bless.
