Jacy Nittolo, Ray Liotta's fiancee, pays tribute to the late actor on the day he would have turned 68. Nittolo honored Liotta's memory with a montage of images of the couple and their children synchronized to The Beatles' 'In My Life'. 

On Saturday, December 17, the 48-year-old shared a heartfelt video slideshow of the 'Field of Dreams' star, who unfortunately died in May at the age of 67. The images from the Instagram post included moments from their relationship as well as time spent with his daughter, Karsen Liotta, 24, whom he has with his ex-wife, Michelle Grace, and Nittolo's four children Dax, Chazz, Jade, and Joey. Nittolo began the caption for her Instagram post with a quote from Chuck Palahniuk writing, "The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will."

Nittolo continued, "Today, Ray would have been 68. I believe he created a lot for everyone that will live on forever, especially in the hearts of Ray's sister Linda, his daughter Karsen and myself. Today we celebrate you."



Nittolo received an abundance of love and support in the comments section. Sepideh Moafi, an Iranian-American actress, commented, "Beautiful Jacy. Sending so much love to you and the whole fam. Happy birthday Ray. 💓" 

Blogger Kelly Rizzo, who too lost a loved one when Bob Saget died at age 65 in January, wrote, "Truer words have never been spoken. So he’ll indeed live forever. Happy Birthday Ray." Julie Anne Merkell, professionally known as Patsy Palmer commented, "Sending love ❤️ ❤️💔"

Karsen celebrated her late father's birthday while also reposting Nittolo's post on her Instagram Stories. "Happy Birthday to my Dad❤️," she captioned a photo of herself and the 'Goodfellas' star. "I love you and miss you more than I can put into words ❤️‍🩹," she wrote alongside a black-and-white photo of Liotta on the next slide.



Since Liotta's death, Nittolo has continued to honor him, as evident by the touching post she wrote last month on Thanksgiving. She posted a picture of herself with her late fiancé from 2019 and wrote, "I've been without Ray for almost 6 months now. Most days are unbearable. I find it hard to breathe without him."

"Today and everyday I am so thankful for the memories he gave me. They were the best years of my life. I'm thankful for my family and children who have been there for me every step of the way. You keep me going. I'm so grateful for my friends old and new, I don't know what I would do without your continuous support. Even with such enduring pain, I feel blessed and I’m truly thankful❤️," Nittolo concluded.
