I got to know Bob a little bit the past few months. We would frequently visit my taco truck. He shared stories about his California life, that I related too. Living in Cali 15 years myself. He had a great love for authentic Mexican food, which is something we both shared. My food isnt completely authentic but Bob appreciated my attention to detail with cooking a good plate of tacos. He told me eating my food brought him back. And triggered fond memories he had. I could see it in his eyes that he was very happy. Thank you for sharing your stories Bob. You will be missed from us at Tacos Food Truck. Sincerely Chef Josh aka Taco
