I was deeply sorry to hear of Lucille’s passing. We grew up together in Jersey City and went to the same high school.. Although I didn’t see her for many years, we recently reconnected and we were looking forward to a reunion of friends from JC. She was such a talented and creative person who touched many lives and will be sadly missed. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends. May she RIP.

Very saddened to hear the passing of one of my favorite teachers from FLHS. She was a great person and helped me so much when I was in her class. I still have the love of pottery and even pursued taking classes after I graduated. She would let me come to her class when one of my other teachers would be absent and we would have a substitute. Rest in peace Ms Scurti, I hope you are spinning the wheel up there making great things!
