My wife Vivian and I extend our deepest sympathy to the Carr Family on the loss of their father, brother and friend. He and I had served together on the NCCU Trustee Board and I had great admiration and respect for him and all he did in the Durham Community and throughout the state. He will be greatly missed.

With profound sadness I extend love and prayers to all the Carrs from the entire Torre family at the loss of dear Watts. We shall miss his upbeat, energetic, and loving personality in Durham and at the beach. We are most definitely richer for having had Watts, Ihrie, and Ruth in our lives. We shall each miss them.
With love,
