Although I was never the biggest fan of her work, the fact that she was from all accounts and from all we saw a tremendous individual, made me a huge fan of Joan Rivers the person. And what a great friend of Israel she was. These past months when Israel so badly needed support from all of us, Joan Rivers was a loud, clear and proud spokesperson for Israel and the Jewish people, leading the charge and using that voice that made her famous for the ultimate good. She spoke her mind with passion and without apology. She wore her heart on her sleeve and shared her most personal triumphs and tragedies with the entire world with a unique type of dignity. She will be remembered by many as a great entertainer, but more importantly she leaves us being remembered as a great person.
Rest in Peace Joan Rivers. You left us far too soon.
