Kim and famil I will sure miss seeing your mom at Hannafords. She was so fast at the register that I couldn't even get my money out before things were rung up and bagged.

To Donna's Family. We are so shocked and saddened to hear of Donna's passing. She was always a joy and loved seeing her when we went to Hannaford. We would always say we're going to Donna's today and got on her line everytime we saw her. We will miss her terribly. Rest in peace Donna.
