Joan Rivers’ Ashes Scattered In Wyoming
According to reports, Joan Rivers’ daughter, Melissa Rivers, scattered some of the late comedienne’s ashes in Wyoming after taking her first family vacation there without her mother. The funny-woman died on September 4, 2014 after a botched throat operation in New York City, and as the first anniversary of her passing looms, Melissa Rivers reveals she and her 14-year-old son, Cooper, recently found a special way to honor the funny-woman during their annual summer holiday.
Rivers told Entertainment Tonight, “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.” And Melissa admits she and her boy will be keeping things low-key as the world mourns the loss of her mom this Friday on the first anniversary of her passing away. She said, “He (Cooper) is going to go to school, I am going to go to work and come home and light a candle and have a glass of wine.” She added, “For my mother… the most important thing this year (is) 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.”
