Mrs. Barbara Short and all the family members of Mr. James Short: I am sorry for your loss--I extend my condolences to all of you. I used to attend Senior Center Supper Club, when Kenny was driving the CareAVan. I met at Arni&s restaurant Mr. James and Mrs. Barbara. Due to lack of transportation, I am not able to attend the visitation or funeral service. But I will be praying for you. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. Sincerely, Alice R. Anderson
