I’ve work at Athens Brookshires for 10yrs n I remember seeing Mr.& Mrs.Cribbs . Every Other day at the store Mrs.Cribbs would do her shopping while Mr.Cribbs look around the meat counter.. N he would always tell me about the prices of meat bk In the day..And tell me stories of many things... I always love seeing them in the store.. He will be very much missed.. But I know I get to see Mrs.Cribbs occasionally n that makes me happy...
