Almost a year after Joan Rivers’ death, daughter Melissa Rivers has finally found a place to scatter some of her mother’s ashes. The TV personality also revealed how she plans to honor her mother’s first year death anniversary.
The executive producer and her 14-year-old son Cooper decided to scatter a few of the iconic comedienne’s ashes in Wyoming, where the family would usually have her annual vacation, according to Entertainment Tonight (ET). It was the first annual family trip that Melissa and Cooper took without Joan, said the TV personality to ET, which is why they decided to bring a part of her along with them.
Melissa explained, "Coop and I took our annual family vacation to Wyoming. The first without my mom and scattered some of her ashes there so we can still be together every August as a family."
The comedy legend’s first year death anniversary is also just a few days away, however, Melissa revealed to ET that she does not have big plans for Sept. 4. The “Fashion Police” new host mentioned that she will be spending the day with her son, wherein Cooper is expected to go to school on that day, while she will also report for work. Melissa added that after work, she plans to “light a candle and have a glass of wine."
Melissa also explained that being “OK” is the most important thing, not only for her and Cooper, but also for her deceased mother. She said, "For my mother, that would be the most important thing this year, that Cooper is OK. ... Cooper and I talk about what would be the best way to honor her legacy, and the best way to honor her legacy is to be OK."
Earlier this summer, Melissa shared how she was coping without her famous mother. According to E!News , Melissa told the AARP The Magazine how much she misses Joan and how she has been “trying to find her voice” after being a part of a comedy tandem.
Joan Rivers died on Sept. 4, 2014 following complications from a routine vocal chord surgical procedure. She was 81.
