Teresa Giudice And Joe Gorga Say Goodbye To Their Late Father Giacinto Gorga In Emotional Funeral Service!

Teresa Giudice and her brother Joe Gorga honored their late father, Giacinto Gorga, in an intimate funeral service just four days after his death. The Real Housewives of New Jersey siblings shared a glimpse of Gorga’s memorial via Instagram.

Dressed in all-black attire, the Giudice and Gorga children released the doves as a somber Italian ballad played in the background.

“Today we set you free,” Guidice captioned the Instagram update on Tuesday, April 7, sharing the same video and statement as her younger brother, according to Us Weekly. “Fly high to mommy😇❤️🕊🙏🏻.”

Meanwhile, Joe's wife Melissa Gorga also shared footage from the emotional moment. “The beautiful Grandchildren watching the doves fly into the heavens in honor of their Nonno,” Melissa wrote via Instagram.

Gia Giudice, Teresa's oldest daughter also shared footage from the emotional moment. “today we set you free, fly high my beautiful angel❤️😇🙏🏻,” Gia wrote via Instagram.

The mother-of-four confirmed on Friday, April 3, that her father, known to his grandchildren and Bravo fans as Nonno, died at the age of 76. “My father, my protector, my hero, God took you early this morning to be with mommy, I saw you peacefully pass & I know you kept fighting for my daughters and I. 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. I will miss you more than you know, But go find your wife because I know that’s all you want and all you’ve ever talked about for the past 3 years. You will be missed every single day.”

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.
