Big Ang was remembered at her funeral mass on Monday at Basilica of Regina Pacis in Brooklyn.
Many of Big Ang’s friends and family, and friends that are like family, came out to say their last goodbyes to the larger than life star.
One source disclosed, “Ang’s sister [Janine Detore] gave an amazing speech. It was very touching.”
Detore reportedly recalled a sweet moment with her sister, saying, “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!’”
#Repost @jenngraziano with @repostapp. ・・・ Tonight we remembered Big Ang in an amazing Eulogy read about Ang's life and the many hearts she touched. It was a great night of friends and family honoring her memory and these two @carlafacciolo and @reneegraziano have been there every second of the days with me holding each other up and honoring Ang. My family, my friends, her family and her friends all were there again sharing in the memories we all created w Ang over the many years each of us knew her. It was a bitter sweet evening on day 2. #RIP #BigAng Thank u @vinniemedugno for that amazing eulogy ..
She continued, “She was a star long before TV. Mob Wives didn’t make her a star, she made the show a hit.”
After the funeral mass, Big Ang‘s mourners went to Angelina’s in Staten Island for a disco-themed luncheon. Big Ang clearly would have loved it.
Friends of Big Ang will no doubt feel her loss longer than most.
Big Ang died early on Thursday morning after a long battle with throat cancer. She was 55 years old.
