"He is survived by his wife Tasha and his son Hunter and his daughter Kaylee."
Stone emotionally thanked friends and fans for their support during such a difficult time:
"Like any family, we thank you for your love and support in this time of immeasurable grief, and we appreciate all of your condolences."
"Yes we've had a tremendous amount of loss in these last couple of years, as so many of you also have, and we do greatly understand that the losses are ours here on Earth."
"I thank you very much for the love and support that you're showing us. We just ask you to continue to be kind. Thank you."
She captioned her post:
"Godspeed Patrick Joseph Stone. 💔"

In a separate post, Stone shared photos of her brother.
The caption read:
"RIP my brother Patrick Joseph Stone. 🕊️"
TMZ reported that Patrick's wife Tasha shared the news with friends on social media.
"My heart feels like it's been ripped out of my chest. Patrick went to be with our sweet River... I don't know what else to say, he was my world."
"I'm not sure what life is supposed to look like without my husband by my side and quite honestly I don't want to, but I will of course. I just hope that you always stay by my side watching over Hunter, Kaylee and I."
"Until we meet again I will forever hold you and our wonderful (and some not so wonderful but just as important) memories close to my heart and will visit those memories always."
"I love you honey babe. My wish through all of this is that now at least River has his daddy with him and I hope the two of you are having the best time."
Our sincerest condolences to the Stone family—may Patrick rest in peace.
