The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand. Psalm 37:23-24 KJV
Scurry was a good man. He was kind and gentle and he loved his God, his family and his country. Scurry loved life and lived it to the fullest. He will be missed by his family and friends. Shirley, we are praying for you and love you all!
