Sharon Stone’s Brother Patrick Dies at 57
Tasha announced her husband’s demise with a statement on Monday, and wrote, “My heart feels like it’s been ripped out of my chest. Patrick went to be with our sweet River … I don’t know what else to say, he was my world.”
“I’m not sure what life is supposed to look like without my husband by my side, and quite honestly, I don’t want to, but I will of course. I just hope that you always stay by my side, watching over Hunter, Kaylee and I.”
“Until we meet again, I will forever hold you and our wonderful (and some not so wonderful but just as important) memories close to my heart and will visit those memories always. I love you, honey babe. My wish through all of this is that now at least River has his daddy with him, and I hope the two of you are having the best time,” she added.

Tasha previously shared the heartbreaking news of her 11 month old son River’s demise in August 2021 due to organ failure. “God needed River in Heaven. I can’t say more than I needed him here on Earth because my heart is shattered into a million pieces.”
“My days will never be the same and I have no idea how I am supposed to live my life without the sweetest boy in the universe. I am crushed,” she wrote at the time. Earlier, when the baby was rushed to people, Sharon prayed for a ‘miracle.’ After his tragic passing, she shared a clip on Instagram and wrote, “River William Stone. Sept. 8, 2020 – Aug. 30, 2021.”
