Layton Allen Nabors, 2, was called to his Heavenly home from
Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis on Friday, March 19, 2021. Born January 21, 2019, in Northport, AL, he is the son of Rex Allen Nabors, Jr. and Breanna Shaw. Layton was full of life. A happy, 100% boy, who always had a smile on his face. He never stopped going unless he was asleep. Layton LOVED big trucks, and was so excited every time he saw one. He loved and looked up to his Big Sister, Ava, who he followed around and loved hanging out with, playing with toys or watching TV. He also loved animals, and enjoyed sharing his food with the dogs. He laughed and smiled throughout his two years, bringing joy and happiness to everyone he was around. During his brief time here on earth, Layton touched so many lives and was loved deeply by family and friends. He is now in the arms of the Angels, and his memory will be cherished forever in the hearts of his family.
