Following Antonia Gorga's passing on Friday, her The Real Housewives of New Jersey daughter-in-law, Melissa Gorga, remembered her late mother-in-law. Her tribute shouted out her husband, Joe Gorga, and sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, who she said sat "by her side for the last three months."

She wrote, in full: "May she Rest In Peace. She was a beautiful woman who loves her children & grandchildren so immensely. I watched Joe & Teresa sit by her side for the last three months, the heart in this family is strong & she will live in our hearts forever."

Antonia died on Friday of natural causes; she was 66. Melissa and Joe named their 12-year-old daughter, Antonia, after her.

Teresa confirmed the news over the weekend and thanked her fans for their support in the wake of it. "Thank you for the love and support during this extremely difficult time. 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 & support are so appreciated," Teresa said. "Give her eternal rest O Lord and may your light shine on her forever."
