For those who don't know, the late reality star passed away from an intense battle with throat cancer on January 18. Despite recovering from her initial March 2014 diagnosis, the grandmother sadly succumbed to her disease after a brave fight.

According to insiders, the cast (Karen Gravano, Drita D'Avanzo, Carla Facciolo and Renee Graziano) came out to say goodbye to Ang at her lovely service in Brooklyn. A source also confirmed the funny woman's two best friends walked her casket out of the church.

As for the kind words said about B.A., confidantes reveal her sister Janine Detore gave an "amazing" and "touching" speech. The message probably echoed the sibling's Instagram send off shortly after the larger than life personality passed.

Following the mass, friends and loved ones of Ang's were treated to a luncheon at Angelina's in Staten Island where disco music was played and Sangria flowed freely.

Regardless of the touching goodbye, the 55-year-old's two kids Raquel and A.J. are still struggling to accept the loss:

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.'"
