I lived in Whitewright in 1993. My mother, Marlena Carr worked at Carl's Tasty Sausage. I worked at Wolverine along with my mother's husband James Carr. We lived almost directly across from her. She was a wonderful neighbor, extremely kind. And funny! Whenever she would come over she would always say, "what you got good to eat" Fact is, she fed me often. Always delicious! I will never forget her. Steve Guayante, August 30, 2021
