    I’ve known Mr. Barnes for years. He will truly be missed. When my mama got sick he would always tell me to take care of mama. He gave sweet potato and cookies. We McDonald’s Family will truly miss him. RIP

  2. Patricia

    He was family to me. My cousin Julia’s husband. Was always kind when I came to visit. He once took me to see his cousin who had a very smart horse, knowing I love horses. God Rest His Soul.
    Sincerely, Patricia

  3. Keith Flowers

    I worked with Tony for many years at K.R. Edwards Tobacco Co. until it closed in 1999. He was very friendly and outgoing and almost always had a smile. He liked to joke and everyone in the break room almost always walked out with their own smile! I actually have a smile now remembering that. Rest in peace Tony.
