The night before the procedure she said

"I could go at any moment. I could lay here and go over... and it would be in the papers and you all could look at each other and say I was there the night Joan Rivers passed."

Joan rivers dies at 81, the plastic surgery on her face was 31.

Wait too soon to make jokes about her death? I think that is what she would have wanted.

Joan you were unique and will be missed.

We're all complex people. I laughed at her jokes, even though I knew that her jokes really hurt others. Maybe that says more about me than it says about her.

I think her jokes were a way to deal with the hurt she had inside her. Better to laugh than cry. Laughing with her showed compassion for her. And THAT says a lot that's good about you.
