Teresa Giudice‘s mother, Antonia Gorga, died on Friday, March 3, at the age of 66. After being admitted to the hospital with pneumonia in December 2016, Gorga was never released.

Giudice, who currently stars in The Real Housewives of New Jersey, posted a loving tribute to her mother on Instagram on Sunday. “Thank you for the love and support during this extremely difficult time,” her post reads. “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 and support are so appreciated. Give her eternal rest O Lord and may your light shine on her forever.”


Gorga appeared frequently on The Real Housewives of New Jersey and fellow stars of the show have also reached out online. “Tenderly. May time heal your sorrow. Gently. May friends ease your pain. Softly. May peace replace heartache. And may warmest memories remain,” read a post by Jacqueline Laurita, a co-star and friend.
