Many current and former Real Housewives stars, including Andy Cohen have expressed their support and condolences to Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her brother Joe Gorga over the recent death of their father Giacinto Gorga’s death.

You are the absolute strongest man I know & I know you missed mommy so much but you stayed for us,” Giudice, 47, wrote via Instagram.

“Thank you for being the best husband, father & Nonno,” she continued. “Your devotion to mommy was one for the record books, you were the true example and a gentleman and devoted husband. You visited mommy every single day & would go twice for the days you missed while traveling or if you were to sick to go, my silver lining is knowing you’ll be together now. Thank you for showing us all what true love is. Love you Papa Rest In Peace.”

Joe, for his part, wrote that he is in disbelief that his father has passed. “I can’t believe he is gone💔 The world lost an amazing man human being today,” he penned. “He was exactly what a true father and husband should be.

It is unclear what caused Gorga’s death, but a rep for Giudice told Page Six on Friday that “he had been sick for a while. It’s so sad.”

In a statement to PEOPLE, Teresa’s attorney James J. Leonard said, “Everyone is devastated. He was such a kind-hearted and loving man. He will be greatly missed by all of those who were fortunate to know him, but especially his children and grandchildren who absolutely adored him.”

Teresa lost her mom Antonia Gorga in March 2017 at the age of 66 following a battle with pneumonia. Following Antonia’s death, Giacinto began living with Teresa and her daughters. Giacinto had seven grandchildren total — Teresa’s four daughters Gia, 19, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 11, and Joe and Melissa’s daughter Antonia, 14, and sons Gino, 12, and Joey, 9.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Teresa and Joe's families during this difficult time.
