Peyton filled a void we had in our life. He along with Miss Ebony gave us so much love and laughter. Jerry and I were honored to be trusted with such a talented, intelligent and caring young man. We considered him family so that gave us the right to spoil him.
I know even though Jerry isn’t here he would want to be included in prayers ,hugs and love in your time of need. Respectfully and loving, Jerry and Debbie
