Tasha wrote, per Page six“Until we meet again, I will forever hold you and our wonderful (and some not-so-wonderful, but equally important) memories close to my heart, and I will always visit you. I love you sweetheart. For all that, my wish is that at least River has her father with her now, and I hope you two had the best time ever.”

Sharon first revealed to fans that River’s body went into full organ failure just days before her death. She posted a photo of her nephew in his hospital bed on Instagram and wrote: “My nephew and godson River Stone was found in his crib today in full organ failure.”
The “Casino” actress asked fans to “Pray for her,” saying their family needs a miracle. When River sadly died days later, Sharon posted another video to announce his passing and honor the memories of his short life. Caption: “William Stone River 8 September 2020 – 30 August 2021”.
In the video posted by Sharon, River can be seen laughing and smiling with her family while wearing only a diaper and a floral shirt. He used Eric Clapton’s “Tears In Heaven” as the soundtrack for the tribute clip, a song Clapton wrote after the tragic death of his son.
