Sharon Stone is once more mourning a tragic loss after her brother, Patrick Stone, died on Sunday morning.
As per reports, Patrick’s passing was confirmed by his wife, Tasha Stone, on Facebook. He was 57 at the time of his death.
The bitter blow for Sharon comes a year and a half after the passing of her nephew, River (Patrick’s son) who died of total organ failure in August 2021 aged 11 months.
As per ET Online, Patrick died of sudden cardiac death due to heart disease.
His wife, Tasha, took to social media to publicly mourn her partner’s death, writing:
“My heart feels like it’s been ripped out of my chest. Patrick went to be with our sweet River around 3:30 this morning.“
She continued: “He gave me 3 beautiful children that he loved and adored.
“He made sure to make it a point to let me know how much he loved me and how much I meant to him… I knew the very first day that I saw him that I was going to marry him. I felt an immediate connection to him and for 20 years we drove each other absolutely crazy but we also loved each other so deeply. I feel lost without my best friend.”
Tasha added that she takes comfort in knowing her husband’s last few days were filled with joy.
“What if I am meant to carry the memory of our near perfect day so that I can smile and feel love when I think of him and he was able to take the memories with him knowing without a shadow of a doubt that he was immensely loved.
“I don’t want to accept that though even if that is the purpose of his passing. I wanted a lifetime with him and even though 20 years is a long time it wasn’t enough time. He was my soul mate. We just got each other even at our ugliest.”
Late on Monday, 64-year-old Sharon posted her own tribute to Patrick, writing simply: “RIP my brother Patrick Joseph Stone. 🕊️”
The actress accompanied the text with a picture of her and her brother in better times.
Back in 2021, Stone told People that “nothing helped” her family to “sustain the tragic loss” of her nephew like organ donation.
“The fact that my godson was able to save three lives, two infants and a 45-year-old man was sanctuary for our family,” she told the publication at the time.
“I can only say that you never, never know when a tragedy will happen in your life or in your family, but this opportunity be an organ donor, it saved us, saved our family.
“Many people have many different thoughts about this, but in the end, it gave us some peace.”
Rest in peace, Patrick. We’re sending our love and hugs to Sharon in the hope that she can find the strength to get through this.
