Gwen, I am praying for you, Taylor, and all of your precious Daddy’s family at this moment. I’ll never forget what a kind, gentle and caring man he was. Before you could drive, he would drive you to pick me up at my house so I could be a part of the life of your loving family.
You were “His Beautiful Girl”! He always had time to listen to you tell him about everything. I loved my quiet, introverted Daddy, but I often wished he were more like Wesley Scruggs. No one could ask for a better father or husband to your precious Mama.
I pray the Holy Spirit who is also Our Comforter, will fill you daily with The Peace that passes all understanding.
Love, prayers and hugs,
Teresa Eagle Shrader

Roger, Gwen, Rodney and the rest of the family
So very sorry for your loss. Your dad was an amazing man that will be greatly missed. Such a kind and loving soul that will always be remembered. I have had the joy of knowing him all my life and have so much respect for him and the Scruggs family. I learned so much about Christian service through both the lives of Wesley and Louise. Thank you for sharing your beautiful dad with all of us. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Allen and Teresa Gillette
