That's a great story!

I especially loved Royal yelling up to Layton that nobody should be climbing there and Layton yelling back down for Royal to move his car before it got hit by rocks!

I too had the experience of climbing things with Layton that I probably couldn't have done if I'd stopped to think abou them.

I found a link where we can help out his wife with expenses. Don't know if it is still up and running. But I am going to find out. The TacoStand helped me out in my time of need. Thank you.
Layton passed away with significant medical, funeral, and other expenses. Friends of Layton's have set up a website for donations in Layton's memory to help Layton's wife, Karen Kor, with those expenses. The website address is: All donations go straight to Karen with no intermediaries and no fees. Please give generously and spread the word!

Great story Tom. He told me how much fun he had flying about with you in your plane. What a treat.
Thanks for the story and a bump for the Kor's.

Karen called me yesterday. Still barely hanging in there.

John McCall and I have been helping her out, and I went to Arlan's graduation from NAU last year and gave them both some funds.

The last 2 years have been very sad but life goes on.

It's hard to believe it has been two years already. So large was Layton's personality, his memory is ever near.
