Bobby at Chick-fil-A
Bobby at Chick-fil-A

If we could tell you one thing about our Bobby it is that he is fun to be with. Yes, he has his moments and we are working on some issues but he is funny, loves people, has no idea what prejudice is, and likes to talk to people even though they do not always understand him! God gave him a personality that is really refreshing and innocent. He teaches us patience and appreciation every day! Last December a new Chick-fil-A opened near us and Seth Poor, the owner/operator, hired Bobby! They are in the photo. Bobby cleans the trays and puts new placemats on them. Everyone at Chick-fil-A is helpful and Bobby really looks forward to going there on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. He gets himself dressed, makes his bed with perfection before leaving and makes sure we buckle-up before driving off. On the way there he talks about Frank, and Gwen, and Tammy, and Arlene, and Timothy, and Daerrell, and Lamonte and Seth, and... When we arrive at Chick-fil-A, I let Bobby out and remind him to sign in on the register. There he goes, holding the door for anyone coming in or going out and repeating, "Eat more chicken!!" Bobby is seventeen years old. When we think of Bobby we smile!
