I sure did hate to hear this news. Layton was a customer and a friend of mine. I sure am glad I got the chance to spend some time with him. He was a good guy he just didn’t want too many people to know that. Lol. He was one of a kind. A very wise man. I sure will miss him. My prayers go up for all of the family.
