On June 23, Teresa took to Instagram to express her gratitude for the gift from Jennifer. The framed collage featured numerous photos of Giacinto, who was lovingly known as Nonno, posing with Teresa, Joe Gorga, and various members of their family. "Thank you so much," she wrote. "I am speechless."
In her own Instagram Story post, Jennifer explained her thought process behind the sweet present. "I didn't know where to send flowers. I assumed that she already had flowers all over her house. I assumed she had Mass cards, food, even money, all to console her for her loss," she captioned a photo of the in-progress collage. "And I saw [these] pictures she posted in the wake of Nonno's death - so I figured they must have meant something to her. So I put as many together as I could - and this is what came to be.. May his Memory live on."
In the months since his April passing, Teresa and her family have honored Nonno in several different ways. On Father's Day on June 21, Teresa, Joe, and Melissa Gorga drank Johnnie Walker Blue Label out of glasses featuring Giacinto's name. "We're going to do a shot in honor of him," Joe said in a video at the time. "Because we love you and miss you so much."
In April, Teresa, who has a recipe in her Skinny Italian book called "Papa's Steak Pizzaiola," honored her late father by cooking the dish with her daughter Gabriella. While showing off the meal via her Instagram Story, Teresa added a hashtag for Nonno.
