Jacqueline Laurita left New Jersey to move out west to Nevada this week, but the thing she'll miss the most about the Garden State is the people.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum shared her final farewell to all of the friends she'll be leaving behind in a touching post on Instagram on Wednesday, June 26. "Saying Goodbye to friends when you move across the country is never easy, so I would just like to say, 'See you soon!'" Jacqueline gushed in the note. "Thank you all for coming to see me before I left. It really meant a lot to me." 

Jacqueline's message was accompanied by a video slideshow featuring several photos of herself with her New Jersey friends. In fact, RHONJ fans will recognize many familiar faces in the collection of pics, including Dolores Catania, Kathy and Rich Wakile, and Kim DePaola, aka "Kim D."

"I’m sorry if your picture wasn’t in this video, it doesn’t mean I love you any less. I’m sorry I didn’t get pictures with all of you, but just know I enjoyed and will continue to enjoy our friendship very much," Jacqueline wrote in the post. "I’m grateful to have met you all. Thank goodness for technology and social media! Please stay in touch!"

Kathy and her sister, Rosie Pierri, sent their love to Jacqueline and her family in the comments to her Instagram post.

Of course, Jacqueline's eldest child, Ashlee Holmes Malleo, will miss her mom the most as she remains in New Jersey with her husband, Pete Malleo, and son Cameron, who will turn 3 in August. Ashlee reflected on her mom's move back to Nevada 18 years after they left the Silver State for New Jersey in a sentimental post on Instagram on June 25.

"Today, I watched my family get on an RV to move back across the country to Nevada. This time, I won’t be joining them on the adventure," Ashlee wrote. "Ending this chapter of my life has been incredibly difficult for me, but I could not be happier for my family and their new beginnings. I don’t know if I’ll ever end up back West. For now, my story is meant to continue here in New Jersey... but you bet your ass I’ll be visiting!"

Ashlee also said goodbye to her childhood home in her Instagram Story, which got an emotional reaction from her mom.
