Ray Liotta's daughter, Karsen Liotta, paid tribute to him weeks after his passing.

Karsen shared a throwback photo of her with her dad on Instagram, two weeks after the "Goodfellas" actor passed away. In the snap, Ray carried Karsen in his arm. She smiled with one arm on her dad's shoulder and another on his chest.

"Those who knew him loved him. You are the best Dad anyone could ask for. I love you. Thank you for everything," she wrote in the caption with a red heart emoji.

It was the first time Karsen opened up about the death of her dad. Her post received several comments, with many sending their love and prayers to Ray's daughter.

"[T]hinking of you sweet angel, sending you and your family all my love," Kristiane commented.

"Sending love and positivity," Meredith Marks added.

"Sending love and light," Willow Raye wrote.

Ryan Dorsey left two folded hands emojis and a red heart emoji, suggesting that he's praying for Karsen.

Ray shared Karsen, 23, with his ex-wife Michelle Grace. The "Field of Dreams" star died in his sleep on May 26 in the Dominican Republic. A source told People that no foul play was suspected in his death. His fiancée Jacy Nittolo was with him at the time of his death.

Nittolo also paid tribute to the late actor days after his passing. She took to Instagram and recounted the "truly magical" moment they shared in an emotional post. She remembered Liotta as "the most beautiful person inside and out that I've ever known."

"My life these past couple of years have been nothing but truly magical," she wrote in the caption of an Instagram post. "Ray and I share a deep love that I will cherish in my heart forever."

She added sweet photos of them sharing kisses and enjoying their time with their family. The hairstylist said they were "inseparable" and they would "laugh daily" together while noting that their "chemistry was wild in the best way."

"He was everything in the world to me, and we couldn't get enough of each other," Nittolo continued. "The kind of real love that one dreams of."

In September, Ray shared on "Live with Kelly and Ryan" that Karsen and Nittolo's son were around the same age and met at a party where Karsen told Nittolo to go on a date with her movie-star dad. Initially, she wasn't interested, saying she wanted "nothing to do with" an actor "whatsoever," Ray said.

However, when she realized who Karsen's dad was, she reportedly responded, "'Wait [for] a second though, isn't he, like, in his 60s? I'm in my 40s.' But the buzz-kill for me was she also had a 10-year-old. When you're in your 60s, the last thing ... you want is a 10-year-old. Luckily this kid is very cool!"
