Edie Falco, who played Tony's long-suffering wife Carmela Soprano, has this to say about Gandolfini's passing: "I am shocked and devastated by Jim's passing. I consider myself very lucky to have spent 10 years as his close colleague. My heart goes out to his family. As those of us in his pretend one hold on to the memories of our intense and beautiful time together. The love between Tony and Carmela was one of the greatest I've ever known."
