I remember Shorty......he was so bad that when he crossed the street the cars looked both ways. And one time back in the war he once shot down a German airplane by pointing his finger and yelling "BANG!" RIP Shorty.....

Shorty was a lean mean fighting machine, bow legs and all. I saw him arrest two of the meanest guys in Pike Co back in the 70's.[ Hershel Fields and Leroy Fields] He was alone but he didn't back down, and they gave up and went quietly cuz they knew he would use his gun if he had too.But he was not trigger happy, he would rather take you in peacefully if he could.

You know 1st hand what kind of person you papaw was. There are always some idiots on here that want to harass people. Don't take the bait. If you don't argue with them they'll wither up and go away.

"remembering correctly" I am Shorty's grandson and from your comment I can tell you don't have the Lord in your life, papaw was not a perfect man but tell me who is. When He met a man called JESUS anything and everything in His past was covered under the Blood of Jesus. Here is the Plan of Salvation: Romans 2:23
For ALL have sinned, and come SHORT of the GLORY of God. See WE all must realize we are SINNERS. Romans 7:20 For the WAGES of SIN is DEATH: BUT the GIFT of GOD is ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD. You see one day WE will PAY for what we have done in this LIFE. We must REPENT. Romans 10:3 For they being IGNORANT of GOD'S righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. 10:9 That if thou shalt CONFESS with thy MOUTH the LORD JESUS, and shalt BELIEVE in thine HEART that GOD hath RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALT BE SAVED. Acts 17:31 Because HE hath appointed a day, in the which he will JUDGE the world in righteousness by that MAN whom he hath ordained; whereof HE hath given ASSURANCE unto ALL MEN, in that he hath raised HIM from the dead. Romans 10:13 For WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.
You see with out the Lord in our life we have no hope of Heaven because WE are All Sinners and will be judged on our works in this world. We must Trust in the Lord and what he done at Calvary. Only by the Blood of Jesus can we be saved. He Paid a debt He did not owe because I owed a debt I could not Pay. So I will be praying for you.
