Dear Scruggs Family, though we did not know Mrs. Scruggs very well, as her neighbors for many years we knew her as a kind and gentle lady, friendly and happy. From reading more about her, we know she was a fine, Godly woman whose wonderful influence will continue . She is now healthy and with her Savior. You all are in our prayers for God's strength and comfort, with special thoughts for Mr. Scruggs. Their marriage was blessed and an example for all.

Wesley, Roger, Gwen, Rodney and all the rest of the family,
Your wife/ mother was a very special woman. She was so caring and kind to everyone. I learned so much from her about being a good wife, mother, sister and how to serve God. She was always thinking of others and never about herself. Working at church with Wesley and Louise over the years was always so much fun and was a learning experience for me. Louise and I taught the younger children's Sunday School class for a few years and we enjoyed every minute of it. Louise was much like the "Energizer Bunny", she just kept on going and going and going. She will be greatly missed by everyone that knew her. She was a mentor to me in my life and I appreciate her so very much. What a legacy she has left and I am the better for knowing her. My thoughts and prayers are with each one of you. Allen and Teresa Gillette
