The loss of Angela ‘Big Ang’ Raiola is hitting her family and ‘Mob Wives’ community hard, and tributes just keep flooding in for the beloved reality star. Her nieces Jeannie and Sonnie Detore shared some sweet pictures of their aunt from her final moments — see the pics here.
Before Angela “Big Ang” Raiola sadly lost her battle with brain and lung cancer, she was surrounded by family and loved ones in her hospital room. Several family members have shared their favorite pictures of Big Ang to pay homage to the lovable TV personality, but perhaps the most impactful photos were posted by her nieces Jeannie Detore and Sonnie Detore, who gave a glimpse of Big Ang’s last moments before she peacefully passed.
Along with a heartbreaking picture of an ailing Big Ang in her hospital bed surrounded by family and friends, Jeannie shared a touching message for her aunt:
“And that’s where you’ll always find us … Right by your side👩❤️👩. You are our beautiful angel that is bigger than life. I will never encounter another human being so selfless like you. You’re one of a kind. Even on your worst days, you always wanted to know how I was doing or feeling. I know you will give me the strength to fulfill one of your wishes that you were begging for. You weren’t just an aunt to me, you were my big sister, my best friend, and a role model. A week ago you texted me that we needed to go to bora bora,I don’t care if I go all by myself because I know you’ll be right by my side. I love you more than you’ll ever know😔💔💔💔. My heart is broken, but I know you’re in peace now my biggest best angel💕 … I miss you already. I miss how we would goof off together, shop together, or gang up on my mom when she didn’t agree with us! I miss every single thing about you.”
Sonnie shared a picture with Big Ang from the hospital as well, in which she’s giving her aunt a loving kiss. Also at Big Ang’s bedside was her husband, Neil Murphy — and while he isn’t seen in Jeannie or Sonnie’s pics, he shared his own loving message with a pic on Twitter.
“I will always love you forever please watch over the grandkids I know you will,” Neil tweeted, along with a sweet shot of him and Big Ang together before her health began to decline. Clearly Big Ang was surrounded by love in her last moments.
With a heart of gold, Big Ang was just as loved by her fans as she was by Jeannie, Sonnie, and all of her family members. She will be missed dearly, and our hearts go out to her loved ones during this difficult time.
