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.”
