    Dabb Family,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. John was a great friend to me throughout my years of working with him at Harmons.
    His father, Russ, actually trained me in the coke wagon at the Taylorsville Harmons 33 years ago.
    I worked with John at the Taylorsville store and Cougar Harmons. He was always such a fantastic co-worker.
    One year he came to our family Christmas party “with” Santa. The only payment he would accept was a cigar. It sure made our families holiday one to remember.
    My thoughts and prayers are with your family as you fill his hole in your lives, but I know he’s so happy to be reunited with Pam. He loved her so much and I know they are together again.
    Much love,
    The Glick family
