Julia Buccola Petta died at age 29 while giving birth to her stillborn son, Filippo. Julia was buried in her wedding dress and given the nickname of The Italian Bride. According to legen, Julia’s mother, Filomena, began having dreams in which Julia was telling her that she was still alive. Years after her death, Filomena received permission to have the grave opened and her daughter exhumed. Her mother then took a picture of Julia in her casket which was then placed on the monument. The picture is still there on her grave at the Mount Carmel Cemetery in Chicago, Illinois.

Wasn’t it? Mom says she has seen some headstones with pictures of the deceased on them. It’s kind of weird seeing them. XOXO – Bacon
