Actress and comedian Joan Rivers passed away peacefully on September 4th, 2014 surrounded by close family and friends. Rivers pioneered the way for many of today's most successful comedians. She was a trailblazer, an innovator. Rivers brought laughter to the world for over 50 years with creative and daring statements that pushed the cultural boundaries of our time, opening the doors and minds of millions. Her unique blend of humor and fashion gave us thousands of hours of joy, goodwill, and entertainment, and we gladly welcomed her into our hearts and homes. Joan Rivers is an icon, a legend, and should be remembered as such. Creating a national Joan Rivers Day in her honor on September 4th will forever keep her spirit and memory in our hearts and minds forever.   Thank you for your support!
