I met Bobby when he worked with my brother, Michael at Lynchburg Tire. He was such a kind soul. I will never forget the day our mother died and he showed up with enough KFC for all of Lynchburg and I couldn't stop laughing! I asked him if he had ownership in KFC. He looked at me with tears and said "they told me to take care of Mitchell and that's what I did ". We still laugh anytime chicken is brought to the table. He made such a hard time easier to handle that day. Rest easy Bobby....your work is done. Thank you for always being so kind to Michael and our entire family.
