So sorry to hear about the passing of Dayton. My mom (Mildred Harvey Rathbone) and his father was brother and sister. He was an inspiration to all who knew him. Didn't get to see him as much as I would have liked to but I will miss him. My love and prayers are with the family.

You are so very loved. Your presence was huge. I loved your voice and your laughter. 46 years since we first met, it is not long enough. Thanks for all the moments we sat on the porch chatting about "nothing ". That's what we were good at. Your memory will linger forever as one of the coolest people I ever had the pleasure to know. Rest now, you deserve it. Trici...
