PORTLAND -- Saturday was the last hooray for Country Bills restaurant.  After 48 years the owners decided to retire and the restaurant is closing it's doors.  

Gregory Tuttle has been the cook here for over 43 years.  He started when he was just 16 and is now almost 60. 

Like many employees here, he suddenly needs a job, however, he's never filled out a resume before in his life. 

"I have no idea what I'm going to do," said Tuttle. "My wife has some health issues so I need to go out there and somehow find a job."  

Longtime employees and customers say the closing feels almost like losing a family member.
