Melissa and Cooper on the Cover of AARP Magazine

Melissa and Cooper are gracing the cover of the June/July 2015 issue of AARP Magazine. Beyond the beautiful cover image is a candid interview with Melissa, where she opens up about dealing with the loss of her mother, grieving, moving forward and carrying on Joan’s legacy.

“My mother’s greatest legacy is laughter. You think of her and you laugh. Do I have plans to carry on that legacy? God, I certainly hope so. I’ll be out of a job if I stop making people laugh. Then she’ll come back to haunt me for sure!”

  1. Your mom is living on through the two of you and I know she is so proud. I know it’s been a tough year for you, but you have handled yourself with dignity and grace. God bless you. While you will never stop missing your mom, may the days become a bit less painful for you.


  2. God Bless you and Cooper wishing you peace. Joan will live in our hearts forever.
