Gia Giudice is understandably devastated over the recent passing of her grandfather, Frank Giudice.

On Wednesday afternoon, Frank collapsed at the home of Teresa and Joe and died shortly after.

Just before 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening, June 18, Teresa and Joe's oldest daughter, Gia, took to Twitter where she shared her feelings about his passing.

"This is not really happening right now, this is not real..," she wrote.

Teresa's co-star, Dina Manzo, also spoke out, writing, "Please Join me in sending Love & Prayers to the Giudice Family..."

According to reports, Frank, 63, and Joe had been in the Giudice family's backyard playing with the family dog, Simba, when Frank suddenly fell to the ground. Frank hadn't been suffering from any known illness, so his death has remained a mystery.

Although Teresa wasn't home at the time of the incident, she arrived home shortly after.

Following Frank's fall, 911 was called, but by the time paramedics arrived, there wasn't anything anyone could do.

Earlier this week, Teresa and Joe held a Father's Day party, which Frank attended.

Frank is survived by his wife, Filomena Giudice.

This month has been rough for the Giudices. Not only did Joe lose his dad, he and his wife, Teresa, may soon lose their freedom, as well. Currently, they are both facing a number of years behind bars as a result of the ongoing fraud case against them.

In March 2014, Teresa and Joe entered a guilty plea and on July 8, they will be sentenced.
