Thank you to everyone who has shown their support for Payton over the last 2 years. Especially those who have done so by placing a We Heart Payton sign in their yard. These signs were the idea of Katie Gallagher, a neighbor on Argyle. They started on Argyle, and then spread far and wide. It brought a smile to Payton’s face to see the signs and feel the support of so many. The O’Brien’s are going to bring their We Heart Payton sign inside their house on Payton’s birthday – January 2, at noon. Please consider doing the same as a step in the healing process.
