Big Ang, also known as Angela Raiola, was honored by her friends and family at her funeral mass on Monday.

Big Ang was bigger than life and touched the lives of all those around her with her tough demeanor and tender heart.

The sister of Big Ang, Janine Detore, gave a moving speech to honor her sister and share a sweet moment between sisters.

She said, "A few days before her death, my sister said she was at peace with dying and she was ready. I said, 'I'm not!' She said, 'Get over it!’”

She added, “She was a star long before TV. Mob Wives didn't make her a star, she made the show a hit."

Detore also revealed that her and Big Ang made a pact before her death to care for each other's kids and grandkids should anything happen to either one of them and indicated that she intended to keep that pact.

In fact, Detore's daughter and Big Ang's neice also shared some of her speech honoring her aunt on Instagram.

(Continuation)... Boop there. I truly believe everything happens for a reason and now I believe that AJ, Gabby, Angelina, and Robert are living at my house because that's where you would want them to be. I'm so grateful to have a part of you during this difficult time. I see you in Angelina so much especially when she asks us to put rollers in her hair. Angelina is just like you she knocks on my door, sits at my vanity, puts red lipstick on with my red wig and dances around. There are so many memories, secrets, obstacles, and accomplishments you've created with me and my family that can last a lifetime. The bond we had with each other is indescribable. Our last text was you texting me "I have to go to bora bora" and I wrote "omg take me with you" and you said to me "I will." Now I will be taking you with me by my side because I know that's where you'll always be.

It went on, "I see you in Angelina so much especially when she asks us to put rollers in her hair. Angelina is just like you she knocks on my door, sits at my vanity, puts red lipstick on with my red wig and dances around."
