  • Rachel says:

    Dear family of Payton,
    I went to school with Payton both junior and senior high. Payton was very witty and friendly. One day I was really struggling on some math. Payton helped me with my work and helped me understand it better. Another fond memory I have of Payton is when we were playing basketball in gym class. I had the ball and Payton was on the opposing team defending. I quickly pass it to my team mate and my teammate makes a basket. The whole gym class was teasing Payton about letting me get past his defence. Even though Payton looked a bit embarrased he took it all in stride. My thoughts are with you. Sending all my love.
    Rachel Crossfield.

    Dear Tom, Annette and Payton’s family,

  • The Charles Family says:

    Tom and Annette:
    Words cannot effectively express our deep sadness upon hearing of Payton’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your families during this very challenging time.
    To reflect on positive memories of the boys might be helpful to ease your sorrow. As neighbours, we have such fond memories of watching the boys from the beach in their excitement enjoying the various water sports you introduced them to. On land, we could watch with delight while Dillion was having great fun driving his junior Jeep around the property. As the years went on, it was wonderful to see Payton have such enjoyment around his basketball hoop playing with his buddies.It was a pleasure to watch these boys grow from toddlers to teenagers.
    We want you to know we will be there to support you in this very challenging and difficult journey!
    With love
    The Charles Family

    Annette & Tom,

    I’m at a loss for words after finding out about the passing of Payton. I’m so devastated and heartbroken for you both. I can’t imagine what you must be feeling even now. I imagine the memories of Payton and the joy he brought still fill you every moment and I hope it brings you some peace and comfort. Payton was such a smart and fun kid who love to be playful and silly. He definitely had an infectious laugh and we always had so much fun when he and Dillon were little. I have such fond memories of both boys. I’m truly sorry for your loss and will be thinking and praying for you both.
