    My sincere condolences go to this amazing family. I had the honor of meeting this family as Warren Schools were being integrated in the mid 60's. Marilyn and I started the 3rd grade together and became friends and remained friends through graduation and are still are friends today. Mrs. Margie and Mr. Scroggins raise three of the most amazing young ladies Tyler County had to offer. Mrs. Margie you will be truly missed by all of your love ones and friends.

    A thing of beauty is a joy forever,
    Rest in Peace Mrs. Whitmire
