    Prayers for peace and comfort for all. Peyton was a beautiful soul with a inspirational spirit. He was loved and will be missed by so many. As his former biology teacher, my heart is broken. I know that he touched the lives of so many that had the pleasure of crossing his path and that sweet smile and buzzing down the hall will so greatly be missed. May God comfort you.

    Dear Rhett and Amber,
    I am a friend of Chris and Kelly. They’ve often shared about your precious Peyton (as well as about Noah) and what a great kid he was. Our hearts are broken for you. I’m so sorry. My prayers are with both of you and your family.
    RIP Peyton…
