Payton lived by a motto of Go Fight Win. Even with all the pain and suffering that Payton went through over the past two years, he continued to embrace this motto and inspired so many others to live as he did. The family would like to express special thanks to Drs. Sravanti Rangaraju and Antonio Di Stasi of UAB along with the entire staff of the 8th floor of UAB’s Women & Infants Center including all the fantastic nurses, technicians and other staff that provided care, comfort, prayers, and friendship during all his treatment. They are remarkable people who were patient, kind, and loving to every member of our extended family during difficult times.
