Our dear friend, Joan Rivers, died today. We’ve known Joan for years and have moved her nearly a dozen times, the first time being from her home in Connecticut out to her daughter’s home in California. Alex and Dionte, one of our father and son moving teams went out on that first move and they were saddened to hear the news today. Whenever a crew would come back from her home (every single time), there was an amazing smile on their face. She treated them like royalty.
While her red carpet persona as the “Queen of Mean” is well known, she was far more than the woman who called Kim Kardashian’s baby ugly and lamented a thousand Oscar night dresses. When the camera stopped rolling and the lights went out, she was a truly kind woman. If there’s one thing we know about Joan Rivers, it’s that she would want people laughing, as we’ve done so because of her so many times. We at All My Sons Moving & Storage would hope that you join us in honoring one of our favorite customers by appreciating the best joke of her entire career, that of all the comedians in the world that could have a vicious stage persona, she was the least suited.
