Our Miracle, Our Love, Our Angel - Peyton...

Many of you who follow my blog know about the passing of my son, Peyton Moore (June 4, 2013).

He was my inspiration and the love of my life...

Because my wife Jennifer and my son allowed me to share our lives so openly, many of you have come to know them from my posts, pictures and videos.

I do not have the words to express my grief, nor would I ever try to express my wife's feelings. I can only say that right now our world has been turned upside down and we are devastated.

My friends and family have given us so much love and support.

The running community has been more than amazing. We are so grateful to the Charleston Running Club for hosting Peyton's reception and to all the runners coming out in force to honor my son this past Sunday for a group run with my Couch to 5K runners.

We were so honored to have the Marines as Peyton's pallbearers and overwhelmed by the unbelievable escort and honors given to our son by all the Law Enforcement community.

Thank you to the thousands of people who have written, called, and showered us with love and support.

I do not know where my life will be led from this point, but I will do everything in my power to honor my beautiful, sweet, caring boy.

He was our miracle, our love, our angel...

  1. We love you& are here for you both. Whatever you need!

  2. Thank you for opening up on your blog. I learned about it before moving here, I guess I googled Charleston Running and it came up somehow, so I started reading then. Your stories of you and Peyton inspired me ever since. From writer to writer, nothing can take away what you've written about your journey and your memories, coming from your heart, and the impact those words have had on others, even when you may not always know it. You never know who Peyton has reached here on MooreOnRunning and how it will continue to inspire people.

    Like EC said, we love you and are here for you <3.

  3. I had not heard of your loss until just now. There are no words to describe how my heart aches for you right now. My thoughts, prayers and condolences to you and your wife. I can't pretend to imagine what you are going through, but I can send a warm thought your way. I will remember Peyton on my next run.

  4. CRBR is making a bad race even worse. I agree it is horrible. now they are combining the 45 minute runners with the 60 minute runners. what idiot runs this race? it is impossible to run without stepping on someone
