I meant to post this yesterday but had no time. Now, I have a few moments but wonder what is left to say. You didn't have to be a Joan Rivers fan to know that she was a force. You didn't have to like her to know that she was a pioneer, a true pioneer. You didn't have to like her to respect her work ethic, both overall and distinctly as a comedian.
This woman made me laugh, made me gasp and captured my attention for most of my life. Her impact on show business will remain in tact for ever but she will be missed, I believe even by people that may not necessarily identify as fans.
Best comment I heard yet, "she died doing what she loved, having surgery". I know she is laughing somewhere over that one!
