“If #bigang taught me anything it was to be thankful for my life long girlfriends,” Graziano, 47, captioned an Instagram photo that was posted following a visitation for the star. “And as you can see I’m happy to be with these amazing ladies reminiscing about our time with Ang.”
The picture featured the group gathered together and smiling for the camera while all wearing black. Facciolo reposted the image, adding, “a day we will never forget.”
Big Ang died on Thursday at the age of 55 after battling stage 4 cancer. Immediately after her death was confirmed, her Mob Wives costars and other New Jersey reality stars reflected on the star’s life and her calm but scene-stealing moments on the show.
“Even filming, I couldn’t keep a straight face sometimes because all she did was make us laugh. Thank God for her, because if it wasn’t for her, we’d really kill each other sometimes,” costar and close friend Facciolo previously told PEOPLE with a chuckle. “Because if we were around her, she’d be like, ‘Get over it!’ She would yell at me. That’s why I used to call her the Mama Bear, because if I said something she’d be like, ‘Oh, Carla, please. Get over it.’ ”
