For every picture there is usually a story and this one is no

exception… a call from my pedigree buddy Seagrave delivery man one
summer. He said JOHN can you come and help me….I’m in the maintenance pull
off on the Dan Ryan in downtown Chicago and I’m broke down…..I was like
Seagraves never break down and he laughed….the rig had developed an air
leak and he knew who to call… I jumped in the Suburban picked up the
parts that we needed and I was on my way. About 90 minutes later I arrived
and bing we got lucky and I had the right part. Glenn with the big smile and
bubbly personality was up and running, headed to New Jersey. Glenn always
was the biggest ambassador for SFA and his efforts should never be
forgotten. Please take a moment to think of Glenn, or drop him a line
wishing him well as he continues to struggle with what life thru at
him…… thought for today.
