Grandma Shorter had a gracefulness in her heart that touched everyone she met. She gave the world exponentially more than she took and found fault in no person.

Perhaps her greatest legacy was how she modestly raised nine children, each of which carried a strong work ethic, respect for others, and high integrity.

My prayers go out to the Family. I will miss the talks with Aunt Mary. Her voice always reminded me of her sister (my mother) Helen Parker Hassler. She will be greatly missed.
