RIP: Laura Scourfield 12/21/12
Laura has been given her wings and it’s official, she is an angel.
Growing up I had the opportunity to meet an amazing person named Laura Scourfield. Laura was so smart that even though she was a couple years younger then me she was in most of my classes in 8th grade. When I first met Laura we started talking about computers and computer hacking – right away I was instantly intrigued by a female that enjoyed talking about hacking into computers. From there on we became good friends – in the picture above Laura & my best buddy O’brian are hanging out in my messy bedroom.
Sadly, Laura Scourfield passed away on December 21st, 2012. Unknown to me, Laura had been sick for the prior year and from what I was told she is no longer suffering and is now flying high above Kenya. Laura was an amazing person and is someone I will always have fond memories of. I wish the best for Laura’s family!
