My dear mom Maria Del Nunzio and I had a very moving day. We met Dorothy, her daughter Alana, and her sister Ava. They came from Providence, Rhode Island, USA, to meet us, their Italian cousins.
Their maternal grandfather, Michele Angelo La Rocca, and my maternal grandfather, Angelo del Nunzio, were stepbrothers.
Michele Angelo never forgot his padulese family, and my mom told us touching stories about that.
I got a missing piece of my family tree!
