On Friday, Sharon Stone shared that her young godson and nephew, River, was found in his crib in "total organ failure."

Three days later she announced the devastating news that the baby has died.

"River William Stone Sept. 8, 2020 - Aug. 30, 2021," she captioned a video tribute to the 11-month-old on Instagram, set to the tune of Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven."

In her previous post, Stone, 63, shared a photo of River in a hospital bed, intubated and surrounded by wires and other medical equipment.

"My nephew and godson River Stone was found in his crib w total organ failure today," Stone wrote, alongside a series of emojis. "Please pray for him. We need a miracle."

River is the son of Stone's brother Patrick and his wife, Tasha. They live in Ohio. River is their third child.

In an emotional post on Monday, Tasha wrote that "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," she wrote. "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. River William Stone you were loved beyond measure. Leaving your hospital room today was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I will ALWAYS love you my sweet baby boy."

Previously, Tasha had written that River falling ill was "literally killing" her.

"...I am dying. Every single second of this is literally killing me," she said. "I just want my sweet sweet boy back ... I am beyond heartbroken."

Stone's sister Kelly also posted on Monday, writing, "Fly with the angels my sweet boy RIVER" on Facebook with a video of the baby.

Proud godmother and aunt Sharon has shared images of baby River in the past, starting shortly after his birth. "Look who's going home," she posted in September 2020, with a sweet photo of the infant in his carseat.
