Friends an family were asked to recall their favorite memory of Mob Wives star Angela ‘Big Ang’ Raiola as she was laid to rest at a funeral service Monday afternoon at Basilica of Regina Pacis in Brooklyn, NY.
Over 200 people packed in the church to say their last farewell to Big Ang in her hometown and to celebrate her larger than life personality that everyone who ever came across her, has been touched by.
David L. Cassato conducted a moving eulogy, during which he recalled his own fond memories with his pal.
The priest said: “Big Ang loved, she cried, she laughed, she shared – she was fully human.
“I want everyone to think of their favourite memory of Big Ang. I’m sure everyone has one that is very special, but I’m going to tell you about mine.”
You were a beautiful lady Angela “BIG ANG” Raiola, you will be missed!
Big Ang was my favorite mob wife.She will be dearly missed.I watched the last season of mob wives and cried when I saw her. God took her home.Ang is an angel watching down.
Big Ang loved your larger than life personality. Admired your honesty and to call it as you saw it. Didn’t know you personally but WOW your death has overcome me with grief. RIP Angela! Fly with the Angels
a GREAT LADY with a wonderful personality , she was real and didn’t pull any punches told things the way they were. She will be missed so much and the show will never be the same. Condolences to her family and friends.
Still hard to believe she is gone, she touched so many hearts in a big way, she was my favorite on the Mob Wives, she will be Missed dearly by so many, Fly High Big Ang, R.I.P, Beautiful Angel!!
She was truly “One of a Kind”. She was my favorite on Mob Wives because of her wonderful personality. You will be greatly missed. I saved all of the episodes, so that I could watch them without having to go all week til the next one. It’s just not the same. May you Rest in Paradise Big Ang.
What a lady………what a gal……….such a “powerhouse” of a woman, mother, grandmother, wife and sister…..The world will miss you – your life on earth was a class act !
loved big ang…wish she was my friend! RIP ang, you will be missed but never forgotten.
You couldn’t help but to fall in love with “big” Ang if you watched Mob Wives…even though you didn’t know her personally. Her larger-than-life personality even shined through the reality show that made her popular. She was the light,the love and the tempermental maturity that glued her friends and castmates together. She’s the one that (sometimes) made it bearable to watch through all of the negativity that seems to pop up constantly. I’m so happy this is the last season for it will definitely NOT be the same without Angela Raiola.
RIP Big Ang. you are one of my favorites on the show. Prayers to your family and friends
I was a very big fan she will be missed she is a angel in hevan now.
