Angela “Big Ang” Raiola’s memory continues to live on in those that loved her most. Over the weekend, Ang’s family and friends unveiled a beautiful mural of the larger-than-life Mob Wives star in Staten Island, New York.
The mural features artwork by Danielle Mastrion and Vincent Santorella and is located by her sister, Janine Detore’s children’s boutique shop The Country Mouse. The official unveiling occurred Sunday morning followed by speeches by Detore and Ang’s Mob Wives co-star Drita D’Avanzo.
The event was attended by Ang’s family and friends and fans. The mural will ensure that Ang is, of course, never forgotten.
