Big Ang of Mob Wives reunited with her true love before she died, and it meant everything to both of them, her sister says.

Fans witnessed Big Ang and her husband, Neil Murphy, have a blowout fight on the last episode of Mob Wives, culminating in Murphy storming out of their home. Ang accused him of being unsupportive through her cancer battle, and the couple separated.

But in the days leading up to her death, Big Ang's family says Murphy stayed by her side while she drew her final breaths.

"Her husband was there the whole time," Ang's sister Janine Detore told Radar Online.

"They didn't have a fight," Detore said. "My sister was sick in the hospital. Do you really think Neil would fight with her? We would beat the shit out of him. He would never do that anyway.

"He loves my sister, he does."

Detore told Dr. Oz on Tuesday that she believes her sister had totally forgiven Murphy for what she thought was a betrayal of their marriage vows, in sickness and in health.

"My sister would never, ever keep a grudge or hard feelings for anybody," she explained. "She was just like that. You could do anything to her and she would be like, ‘OK.'"

The family released funeral details today, saying that four private visitations will be held at a New York City facility with a private funeral at the Basilica of Regina Pacis in Brooklyn on Monday. Her burial in Staten Island will be private, as well.

While most fans will not be able to attend the services, the family wants everyone to know how much the outpouring of love has been appreciated. They tweeted the following message on her Twitter account earlier today:
