Dear Mr. Griffin,
I hope this finds you well. I reach out to you today as my family tries move forward after the passing of my Father, Thomas Shockley. My Dad retired from SuperValu (28+years) after first working for J M Jones. After he retired, he went back to work part-time for SuperValu, working from home. I grew up a SuperValu kid. We were always surrounded by coffee mugs, pens, and folders that my Dad would pass down to us when he'd receive new ones. Our connection to the SuperValu company runs deep. Some of my favorite memories growing up include attending food shows with my Parents. My Dad loved his job and was proud of the company that he worked for. He worked hard and gave us a very good life. I have a SuperValu coffee mug along with a few other SuperValu items that I use and cherish. I'm wondering if there are any SuperValu items that would be available for me to purchase? I am proud of the SuperValu name and find comfort in remembering our time with SuperValu. I appreciate your time.
Sincerely, Misty Shockley
