Wedding day for Lockerbie tragedy relatives

Saturday, August 21, 2010

It was a joyous wedding in New Jersey Saturday for two people united by tragedy: the 1988 bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Scotland.

Sonia Stratis and Chris Tedeschi wed in Montvale.

They both grew up in New Jersey but didn't meet until a couple of years ago at a memorial dinner for the 20th anniversary of the Lockerbie bombing.

Stratis' father died on the flight.

Tedeschi's father was married to a Lockerbie widow.

Nearly two dozen victims' relatives attended the wedding.

The bride walked down the aisle with a photo of her father in her bouquet.
