Melissa Rivers has been through some incredibly sad times lately – the rather sudden death of her mother Joan Rivers must be very hard to deal with, to say the very least, but she’s been so overwhelmed by the love and support from fans that she’s spoken out for the first time since Joan’s passing to offer her appreciation in a new WhoSay post.
As my son Cooper and I mourn the loss of my mother, we want to thank everyone for the beautiful cards and flowers conveying heartfelt messages and condolences, which continue to arrive from around the world and through social media. My mother would have been overwhelmed by the scope and depth of the love that people have expressed for her. It is certainly helping to lift our spirits during this time.
We are forever grateful for your kindness and support in continuing to honor my mother’s legacy, and for remembering the joy and laughter that she brought to so many.
Unfortunately, this is something she’s not likely to find much peace on for a while, given the recent revelations about Yorkville Endoscopy, the clinic that performed the procedures which led to Joan’s cardiac arrest and eventual death.
