“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. She passed peacefully at 1:17pm surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother.
Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated.
My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.”
We continue to pray for Melissa Rivers, Cooper and the rest of Joan’s family and friends. Joan Rivers was filled with energy and love, she was 81 but you could never tell. She was always laughing and working. She’d constantly be flying from New York to LA to film Fashion Police. Joan Rivers death is just completely shocking to me. I’m just heartbroken.
She was taken to soon. She wasn’t done.
