    I’m so sorry Peggy, Daisy and Bub. I hope you find comfort in the memories you have. No one can take those from you. He will always be in your heart. I’m sorry, but I am not able to come in for the services. I wish I could. Let me know if I can do anything.

    Thinking of you all in this time you all need to be lifted up(Peggy,Daisy,and Bub). Daisy was my best
    friend in high school and Layton and Peggy was like my second parents. They treated me like one of
    their own and I will forever be grateful for the both of them. They welcome me into their lives and
    home no questions asked. I basically lived at their house when I was not at my own. They are such
    great parents and always loving and never meet a stranger. It has been many years ago but I will
    NEVER EVER forget how good they were to me. Both Layton and Peggy are such good hearted
    people and would do anything in their power for the people they care about. I am one of the lucky
    ones to have been blessed to have met them and be in their lives. It was such a honor knowing you.
    Peggy, Daisy,and Bub just because you are many miles away and states apart I am still thinking of
    you all and my heart is broken also. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers. I LOVE YOU ALL.
