Sharon Stone took to social media with a touching message dedicated to the memory of her late nephew River who tragically passed away earlier this week due to organ failure.
In the post that the actress put on Instagram Thursday was a photo of a couch and three pictures on the wall inside a hotel room, shared with the caption ‘The stages of grief.’
This poignant message comes only days after Stone’s younger brother and his wife announced the tragic news of their son’s passing.
“He was our tiny jokester, our water baby, our little foodie,” the family said in a statement to the organization CORE, the Center for Organ Recovery and Education. “Now, River has also become a hero. In death, he made a far greater contribution to this world than most of us could ever hope to ourselves.”
“And he proved that the shortest of lives can also be the most meaningful ones. As an organ donor, River saved three lives,” the mourning family added.
As RadarOnline.com reported earlier this week when the heart-rending news broke, Stone posted several video clips showing her tiny godson smiling and laughing. She also had Eric Clapton's song Tears in Heaven playing in the background.
