Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga shared the sad news today that their father, Giacinto Gorga (aka Nonno), passed away. Teresa wrote on Instagram, "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... Thank you for showing us all what true love is. Love you Papa Rest In Peace."

In the days leading up to his passing, Teresa and Joe posted fond memories with their father on Instagram. Teresa shared a photo featuring her and her daughters ((Gia, 19, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10) with Nonno on their recent trip to visit Joe Giudice in Italy back in November. "I love you Papa," she wrote.

She also noted her dad had the "best smile," which is definitely evident in a photo she shared of Nonno surrounded by his daughter and granddaughters.

After Nonno passed on April 3, Teresa continued to share memories over the years of her father with their family.
