We can't imagine how they must feel.
Especially affected by the sad passing are the 55-year-old's Mob Wives cast members, considering these lovely ladies spent such a huge amount of time with the gorgeous gal.
A source said that, while the VH1 alums didn't always get along, they all had a lot of love for the fierce female:
"Ang was like a mom and protector to these women. They loved her like a mom."
"They're all brokenhearted. No one expected it to happen this quickly. Some of the cast was at the hospital last night when she passed. Drita [D'Avanzo] was there."
