Over the last couple of months, the world has lost two of the best actors to ever grace our screens; Ray Liotta and James Caan.

Both known for their roles in mob crime dramas, Goodfellas star Liotta passed away back on May 26 at the age of 67. Deadline, reported that the legendary actor died in his sleep in the Dominican Republic while filming the upcoming movie Dangerous Waters.

And earlier this week, The Godfather star Caan died at the age of 82, with the actor's family tweeting from his account: "It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Jimmy on the evening of July 6. The family appreciates the outpouring of love and heartfelt condolences and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time."

And as mourning fans have scrolled through Caan's Twitter account to read through the actor's final posts, one particular heartbreaking tweet stood out.

Shortly after Liotta's death just weeks ago, Caan shared a now-haunting two-word post that summed up his devastation at losing his friend.

"Not Ray," Caan wrote, alongside a broken heart emoji.

Following the two gangster movie legends passing away - as well as the recent death of The Sopranos star Tony Sirico - one Twitter user replied: "It's like God is putting the greatest mob movie together."

There were many tributes posted to social media following the news of Caan's passing.

Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn shared his appreciation for the actor's body of work, writing: "Rest In Peace James Caan. There are so many movies of his I love, The Godfather films of course being at the very top, but here are a few more I adore (Thief in particular was a Gunn family classic – I had the poster on my wall in high school)."

Additionally, Caan's Jericho Mansions co-star Jennifer Tilly shared a hilarious story from her time with the late actor.

She wrote: "James Caan always had the funniest stories. Once he told me Coppola had the habit of grabbing food off his plate & eating it, so one day he made a sandwich with very hot jalapeños between two pieces of buttered bread, & waited outside Coppola’s airstream…"

Additionally, Adam Sandler also paid tribute to Caan, writing:  "James Caan. Loved him very much. Always wanted to be like him. So happy I got to know him. Never ever stopped laughing when I was around that man. His movies were best of the best. We all will miss him terribly. Thinking of his family and sending my love."

We've lost a lot of legends already this year.

Our thoughts continue to go out to the family, friends, and fans of Caan, Liotta, and Sirico.
