It’s been a sad weekend for the Real Housewives of New Jersey crew.
Antonia Gorga, mother of Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga, has passed away after battling an unknown illness.
She was only 66 years old.
We still don’t know exactly what happened to Antonia, but we do know that her family is devastated by the loss, which is obviously huge.
Teresa shared the above photo on Instagram, and the caption she wrote is enough to break your heart.
“She will forever be missed and cherished in my heart!” she said. “Because of her I will find the strength to continue life’s jourtney. My mother, my confidant, my best friend, my everything.”
“Until we meet again … I love you mommy.”
She also shared a photo of Antonia, her children, and her grandchildren, writing “I miss my mommy so much.”
In another, she wrote “Always there for us & forever in our hearts.”
She even shared this collage of photos:
Along with the photo she said “Thank you for the love and support during this extremely difficult time. My mother was a very cherished part of our family and she’ll be deeply missed.”
“Each and every one of your messages of love & support are so appreciated.”
“Give her eternal rest O Lord and may your light shine on her forever,” Teresa finished.
But Teresa wasn’t the only one mourning Antonia. Her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, shared a photo of her own and wrote “May she Rest In Peace.”
“She was a beautiful woman who loves her children & grandchildren so immensely! I watched Joe & Teresa sit by her side for the last three months, the heart in this family is strong & she will live in our hearts forever.”
Teresa’s fellow Real Housewife Jacqueline Laurita even shared a thoughtful message on Instagram, which is notable since Teresa and Jacqueline have had their issues in the past.
“Tenderly may time heal your sorrow. Gently may friends ease your pain. Softly may peace replace heartaches. And my warmest memories remain,” her message read.
Another housewife, Amber Marchese, tweeted “A beautiful lady. This is a heart ache for all.”
At this time, Joe Gorga hasn’t offered any public statements about his mother’s death.
Our condolences go out to the family and friends of Antonia.
