I remember riding the bus with Kobe. He was always full of light and making people laugh. His jokes were definitely the funniest. I saw him in Walmart one night riding the electric wheelchair with a basket full of chocolate milk. It was the funniest thing. Kobe sure will be missed.

My Memories of Kobe:
I remember working at Logan's with Kobe, and he always had a way of making me laugh.. He was definitely a jokster.. Every time I would see him, he and I would always burst out into laughter for no reason. (Of course we had our own little inside jokes aside from the jokes and pranks he was always pulling on me, as well as everyone else) He was a genuine person, and there was just something about his presence that definitely lit up the room. His personality was one of a kind. Kobe will forever be remembered!! I will cherish the times that we had together! My condolences go out to the Burchfield's during this time of tragedy.

I can remember meeting with Kobe, Matthew, and Brianna every morning at school to eat breakfast and to talk and laugh together. We had almost every class together and there wasn’t a moment we didn’t laugh or smile when Kobe was around. Kobe was one of my good friends, he was just a sweet person. A big ole teddy bear. He was always cracking jokes. When I got upset Kobe knew what to say to make me smile. RIP Kobe, gone but never forgotten. Fly high beautiful angel we all miss you 💜.

I chased Coby around NWGA trying to get him to go to Young Life. He gave in a few times. We had plenty of conversations about God and family, hurt and pain. But mostly he just made us all laugh. I sat with Kobe at lunch many many days and him, Gunnar, Thomas, Blake and the rest of his friends. I will always cherish his stories like four wheeling with Gunnar and getting stuck in the mud and then out of the blue his Dad drives by... Or tricking me to watch something too silly on his cell phone...

Hilarious 😂

Watching him graduate was one of the highlights of my career.

My senior year of High school at Ridgeland I was the student aid for his fourth block class. I can’t remember a time we weren’t laughing by something Kobe did or said and no matter when he said it the teacher couldn’t even be mad because he was too busy laughing. I couldn’t believe it when I heard the news. I’m praying for the whole family that God will give them grace and mercy and a peace that surpasses all understanding
