Everyday is my hint of some light to be with our kids -Dax, Karsen, Chazz, Jade & Joey. Through such deep pain I find so much love and laughter. Our lives are so fragile right now, but we hold on to each other.’
She concluded her caption with, “It’s like we’re one big composite family destined to be beyond our wildest imaginations.”
The legendary gangster actor died in the Dominican Republic halfway through the shooting of Dangerous Waters, a film about a sailing vacation that got out of hand.
He and Nittolo were in the island country together when the star died.

Cinema Icons: Liotta was best known for his incredible performance in the 1990 Martin Scorsese Mafia film, in which he played Henry Hill while De Niro took on the role of Jimmy Conway
Liotta was perhaps best known for his incredible performance in Martin Scorsese’s 1990 classic Goodfellas, where he played Henry Hill alongside Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci.
The film — which premiered at the 47th Venice International Film Festival on September 9, 1990 — follows Hill’s rise and fall as a mob operative from 1955 to 1980.
The film was a critical success, earning six Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, with Pesci, 79, winning Supporting Actor and Martin Scorsese, 79, receiving his third Best Director nomination.
Lorraine Bracco, 67, who played Liotta’s wife in the mafia film, paid tribute to her former co-star on Twitter, writing: “I am utterly shocked to hear this terrible news about my Ray.”
“I can be anywhere in the world and people come up to me and tell me their favorite movie is Goodfellas. Then they always ask what was the best thing about making that movie. My reaction has always been the same… Ray Liotta,” she wrote.
