Bottom row: (Flower Girl - unknown), James (Della) Badia (my dad), Vincenza Di Napoli (my mom), (Ring Bearer - unknown), Lucy Fastiggi (Maid of Honor - we think).
(maid of honor) and Dr. Angelo Di Nicola (best man and family doctor).
Second Row: (Female -unknown), (Female - unknown)*, Rose Di Napoli Maria (mom's sister), (Female - unknown).
Top Row: (Male - unknown), (Male - unknown), (Male - unknown), Michele (Della) Badia (dad's youngest brother).
Earlier we discussed the maid of honor: Lucy Fastiggi. We don't know anything about her except her name .
Jason suspects that Lucy Fastiggi was a daughter of Vitale Fastiggi and Rosa
Iannolillo....Vitale and Rosa died in New Rochelle.
Family rumor has it that the ring bearer and flower girl grew up and married. Have never been able to confirm that.
So we have a little mystery to go along with the picture. Hope you enjoy it.
* "One of the unknown female bridesmaids in the second row is probably Mary Diorio. She was my mother's best friend and, according to my sister, my mother wrote to her throughout her life until Mary died. She was
probably a NR native".
