Patton Oswalt shares a powerful message from his daughter after his wife's sudden death

Writer Michelle McNamara, Wife Of Patton Oswalt, Dies At 46

Following the death of Michelle McNamara, the wife of comedian Patton Oswalt, social media has been flooded with condolences for the funnyman.

Though Oswalt has been mostly quiet since his loss, on Sunday he did tweet out the touching words his and McNamara's seven-year-old daughter Alice said about her mother.

That's a powerful way of looking at death and how to move on, especially from such a young mind.

McNamara, a true crime writer, died in her sleep on April 21 at the age of 46. Oswalt's publicist told People that her death "was a complete shock to her family and friends, who loved her dearly."

No cause of death has been given.
