My prayer goes to his family for comfort and peace and I lean on my own faith that Leyton is now with Jesus in total peace and joy. Maybe he is talking with my mom right now. I love you Leyton. I am so grateful that I was allowed to know you and I will never forget your beautiful smile, gentleness and strong love for the Lord. Until we see eachother again my dear friend. Keep praying!

When Layton opened the door to our shop, in blew sparks of hope!  Layton was the most positive person, I have ever met.  He hit every challenge with optimism, and shared it enthusiastically with every person he met.  His smile was contagious.  He was such an example of goodness.  A friend to all, he truly had no enemies.  We will miss him!  He left too soon!
