    I worked with Anthony at McDonald’s when I was in Jackson. Outside of work, I played World of Warcraft with him and some fellow co-workers. Before McDonald’s, I knew of Anthony but never really spoke to him. Anthony was an amazing friend and never failed to make me smile. As I was a trainer, Anthony glistened as I recall him having a knack for service work; he had a specific friendliness and energy when It came to helping people. It truly pains me to see this happen to him and his family, and I extend my regards and sorrow to those affected. Though we knew each other for only a year or so, I felt like Anthony and I had been friends for quite some time. May Anthony find peace wherever he is now, and those close to him find comfort and support. I’ll miss you Anthony, and I’ll never forget about you.
