Layton was married to my sister Myra. He was my last surviving brother in law and very loved. RIP Layton. I'm sure you are celebrating with Myra and other loved ones gone before.

Layton Urquhart was pastor at my family's first church in Moore, OK. He baptized my son, and was an unfailingly kind man. He and Myra have a special place in my memory and my heart.
