Kathy Wakile is getting nostalgic with a touching throwback photo in which she looks like a certain other Real Housewives of New Jersey star.

Kathy took to Instagram on November 11 to post a photo taken back in the day of herself and her late father. 

"When I think of you Daddy, this is the smile I see!" Kathy captions the shot. "Missing you but always in my ❤️."

It's very moving to see this post, and we admire Kathy for being open about her emotions.

Kathy has spoken in the past about her dad's losing battle with leukemia and lung cancer.

“I was there with my mom as much as I could be during the day, but Rosie lived with them and watched day in and day out as my father slipped further and further away," Kathy says. "Until you live with the pain of watching a loved one, especially a powerhouse like your father, suffer so severely, you can’t know what the pain feels like.”

We also can't help but notice that Kathy looks quite a bit different in this pic, as she definitely resembles cousin Teresa Giudice here. Love that 'do, Kath!

Losing a parent is always tough, no matter what age you are, and we wish Kathy the best.
