Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga's Kids Hold a Beautiful Memorial for Their Late Nonno
The Real Housewives of New Jersey family did something truly special to honor Giacinto Gorga.
The family held an outdoor memorial for Nonno, which was captured by his loved ones on Instagram, on Tuesday, April 7. Teresa's daughters (Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana) and Melissa's kids (Antonia, Gino, and Joey), all clad in black, gathered around a table with two white boxes covered in blue and white flowers, according to a video shared by the family on Instagram. Nonno's grandchildren then lifted the lids on the containers to release three white doves into the air as the song "Con Te Partirò" by Andrea Bocelli played over a loudspeaker.
Melissa described the scene on Instagram: "The beautiful Grandchildren watching the doves fly into the heavens in honor of their Nonno."
The gesture was reminiscent of the family's tribute to Teresa's mother, Antonia Gorga, when they released white balloons into the air at her funeral in March 2017.
Giacinto passed away on the morning of April 3. He was 76 years old.
