Melissa Rivers Remembers Mom Joan on First Anniversary of Her Death
Melissa Rivers took to Twitter on Friday, Sept. 4, to share a touching tribute with her fans in remembrance of her mom Joan Rivers.
“Today marks one year since my mother passed,” Melissa wrote. “This was the year of firsts: first holidays, first birthdays, first everythings without mom, without grandma. While it’s been difficult, I’ve been amazed by the outpouring of love and overwhelming kindness we’ve received from family, friends, and people whose lives were touched by the woman they knew as Joan – a woman we all miss so very much.”
Joan, who was 81 at the time of her death, passed away tragically last year following a botched throat surgery procedure.
