My Story

Ronald "Shane" Short passed away March 10, 1995 in Newport. He was born July 17,1972 in Tulare, California. Mr Short was a millwright. Preceded in death by maternal grandfather, Roy Lee Sweatt Sr, Paternal grandfather, Homer A. Short. Survivors include one son, Colton of Newport, father, Ronald A. Short, mother, Donna J Sweatt French, brother, Shawn Short of Newport, Maternal grandmother, Berlene Sweatt Price of Las Vegas, Nevada, step grandfather, William B. Price of Las Vegas, Nevada, Paternal grandmother, Juanita Short of Newport, Funeral arrangements by Jackson's Funeral Homes. Shane was my firstborn child, Shawn was born 1 year and 1 day after and they grew up so close. Shane was always way past the mentality of a young man his age, we always said he had " an old soul" He knew things that we had no idea he knew about. He wrote poetry from the age of 8, his first 2 poems being in church on Easter sunday about the crucifixion of Christ. He wrote of issues like child abuse, abortion, homeless, molestation, drugs, etc,etc. His poetry is deep and very moving and is shared on several site, one being his memorial site Lighthouse 4 Jesus at He will always be loved and missed by all who met him, definitely one of a kind. I always told him God broke the mold when He created him, there was none like him anywhere. He would always smile that crooked little grin we all loved. That grin could melt hearts. Shane, you are so loved and missed. Mom & Shawn 

I am happy that you stopped by to visit my son, Shane. he was born July 17, 1972
and was shot and killed March 10, 1995 at
the young age of 22. There was no justice for Shane on earth but one day,
the person who shot him will stand before God and
there will finally be justice for my son. This is sometimes the only thing
that keeps me going, gets me through each day,
knowing this. Please browse through the pages, read his awesome poems and
mine and come back often as the pages are updated frequently. 

Here are other sites where you can visit him, light a candle, leave a flower, etc.
Thank you and please come back. You will never know what it means to a Mom
to have others remember their child. Hugs, Dj
