A strong bond: Sharon is seen here with brother Patrick in September 2018 during a trip to Alaska. Sharon was with her three sons and Patrick was with wife Tasha and their two children (in blue jacket and in green top)
In her book The Beauty of Living Twice, she said she was close to Patrick and in more recent years has gotten along better with Michael.
The last time Sharon posed with media shy Patrick for an Instagram photo was in September 2018 when they went on a trip with their children to Alaska.
In August 2021, Sharon shared that River died.
The baby passed away just days after he was found in his crib suffering ‘severe organ failure’ that left him in a coma.
The actress posted a video of the baby boy along with the caption: ‘River William Stone. Sept. 8, 2020 – Aug. 30, 2021.’
River was the youngest child of Stone’s younger brother Patrick and his wife, Tasha, who live in Ohio with their three children.
Sharon, whose video tribute was set to Eric Clapton’s Tears In Heaven, did not share any other information about what exactly happened to River at the time.
She said that the youngster was suffering from ‘total organ failure’ and would need a ‘miracle’ to survive.

‘My nephew and godson River Stone was found in his crib w[sic] total organ failure today,’ she shared.
Stone then added, ‘Please pray for him.
‘We need a miracle,’ she wrote at the time.
The actress was posting an image of River lying in a hospital bed while hooked up to numerous medical devices.
River’s mother Tasha also wrote an impassioned plea for prayers on her Facebook page.
She revealed that her son had been airlifted to UPMC Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, where he was fighting for his life in a coma.
He soon after died.
‘This is the HARDEST thing I have ever had to post but I am BEGGING everyone and anyone who prays please pray HARD for River,’ the devastated mother wrote. ‘Every single second of this is literally killing me. I just want my sweet sweet boy back.’
Heartbreaking: This comes almost two years after Patrick’s son River died at the age of 11 months from organ failure. The mother was his wife Tasha
Tragedy: Stone revealed in 2021 that River has died just days after he was found in his crib with ‘total organ failure’
There are a number of severe medical conditions that can lead to multiple organ failure in children, however the leading cause is sepsis, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information.
Sepsis – which can be sparked by another infection in the body – is particularly dangerous for children, because the symptoms are more easily missed than they are in adult patients.
Birth defects and other undiagnosed illness can also lead to pediatric organ failure however, and it is not yet known whether any of these conditions caused River’s severe illness.
Stone was traveling in Italy when she revealed the news of her nephew’s devastating medical condition – having journeyed to Venice in order to take part in a photoshoot for Dolce & Gabbana.
River’s passing comes amid a difficult time for the extended Stone family, which has seen several members dealing with serious health problems in recent months – including cases of COVID-19.
In 2020, a grief-stricken Stone revealed that her ‘adopted grandmother’ Eileen Mitzman and her godmother had died from complications associated with the virus.
The actress’s sister, Kelly, who has lupus, and her husband, Bruce, had also contracted the disease and were left ‘fighting for their lives’ before eventually recovering.
While speaking about her sister’s battle with the illness in an Instagram video shared in August 2020, Stone also shared that her mother, Dorothy, had suffered ‘two heart attacks’ in the five months leading up to her post.
Stone, who in 2020 revealed that her grandmother had passed away from complications relating to COVID-19, was traveling in Italy when River was hospitalized
River’s mother Tasha revealed on Facebook that her son, who was born in September 2020, had died
Stone said her mother had to have ‘five stents’, which help to open the arteries and prevent blockages in the heart – and a pacemaker as a result.
It also appears as though River’s mother Tasha has been struggling with health issues in 2021; comments left on her Facebook page in January 2021 suggested that she had to receive medical treatment that required her to spend time away from her family.
At the time, the mother-of-three revealed that she had returned home – but that she had an IV port in her arm, and would be undergoing continued treatment with the help of a home help nurse for several weeks.
‘I was able to come home with a power glide IV port in my arm so I can continue to receive treatments from a home health nurse at home for the next couple of weeks,’ she wrote.
‘After that I will be switched to a pill form of the antibiotic. I am just thankful to be back with my family.’
