Just two days after Teresa Giudice's father-in-law dropped dead in their yard, her 13-year-old daughter posted a tribute photo on her Twitter account while trying to come to terms with her grandfather's unexpected and devastating death.

Joe's father, Frank, was just 63-years-old when he collapsed at the Giudice home on Wednesday and he's survived by his wife, Filomena Giudice, three children and multiple grandchildren.

Posing with her grandfather, Gia, 13, posted a photo on Twitter Thursday evening with the following caption:

"strongest man I know.. I love you nonno❤️rest in peace... 6/18/14"

As Radar previously reported, the funeral and burial plans have been set, with the entire extended family flying in from Italy to mourn Frank and show support for the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars.

"Everyone is shocked at their beloved relative dying so quickly," an insider told Radar. "They all want to come and show their support for the family."

There will be a viewing on Sunday at Festas Memorial Funeral Home in Totowa and a Mass will be held at St. James of the Marches followed immediately by a burial.

Following the death of her father-in-law, both Joe and Teresa's sentencing hearing — originally scheduled for July 8 — has been pushed back to Sept. 23.
