Mrs. McCurry was a role model to many during her life time. One mantra around our household is her quote we'll not forget: One day, years ago, when we asked her if she was having a good day, she smiled sweetly and replied, "Darlin', I don't have bad days". We will treasure all the moments spent with her, one of God's most humble servants. We sincerely extend our deepest sympathy to the family and grieve with you.
