Bobby King, a resident of Candler, NC, recently had his wish for a riding lawn mower granted, thanks to Twilight Wish. King, who is nearly 80, takes great pride in maintaining his property in rural North Carolina. He and his wife have lived in the same house for nearly 50 years and King still mows his grass with a push mower. Because of his age, it was getting more and more difficult for him to manage on his own.  He always wanted a riding mower, but because of his limited income, could not afford one. King is well known in his neighborhood for his generosity.  He and his wife took in their adopted daughter in 2007 when her mother died, raising her  until she graduated in 2012.  King and his wife Brenda are also very involved in their church and hold weekly prayer meetings at their house. His wish for a riding mower was granted on Monday, July 22, 2013.  Special thanks to Lowe's of West Asheville who greatly discounted the cost of the mower for King.  For the coverage on WLOS, click here.
