Dudley and Anna Parr sat inside the Overflow Café in Cambridge, Md. The small café was empty except for two workers and a lone customer, Eddie. Rain drizzled down its large windows. Dudley’s cell phone rang: “Hey, bud, what’s up?” He listened for a moment, then asked, “What do you need?” Another pause. “Call the Salvation Army directly and ask them.” He hung up and looked at his wife. A man wanted to borrow a dress shirt, but Dudley is the wrong size.
Such calls are routine for Dudley Parr.
