I knew Mr. and Mrs. Crabbs and Ricky from growing up on Georgia Ave. in Phoenix. Great memories of days gone by. The Crabbs always had the best manicured yard in the neighborhood! Mrs. Crabbs was always so kind to us growing up! Mr. Crabbs was always willing to play some catch with us and show us how to improve our baseball skills. Terrific role models! May they rest in peace!
