    The very first time Anthony, (step-dad) for approximately 7 years, brought him to my house. They were outside when my big male cat Frankie caught a mouse. And Peyton was so excited calling for Anthony to hurry up come see. Frankie ate everything except for the tail. Peyton said he never watched a cat catch and eat a mouse before!
    I asked Crystal who is the vivacious boy. Crystals look of pride said it all.
    Peyton’s excitement gave me a good laugh and I thought what a wonderful spirit this boy has!

    I know my son Anthony will forever hold Peyton in his heart and continue to love him and his brothers for all time.
