    Although, I did not know Mrs. LoRusso very well, I remember her from my days at Strough Junior High School when I was a student there from 1987-1989.

    I taught with your Mother at Strough. You may have heard this story. When computers were first coming in to schools, we had to take some lessons. Our teacher was trying to make a point and asked how many of you in this room (about 12) share the same birthday? I knew that the home ec. teacher and I shared the same birthday but we didn't know about your Mother. We literally blew the mind of that young man. I am sorry for your loss. I thought you might enjoy this memory!
