Melissa Rivers leaves ashes in stores and restaurants

[ Edited ]

I'm pretty sure it is illegal to deposit ashes of a loved one in a store and in a restaurant. 

 

She scattered her mother's ashes to all parts of the world including inside stores and restaurants.  One cannot dispose of the deceased in this manner. 

 

Nearly two years have passed since Joan Rivers' death, her daughter Melissa has revealed she's shipped her mother's ashes to friends all over the world.

 

"She's in England and Scotland and Mexico and Wyoming and California, and stores and restaurants and studios. She is places nobody would expect her to be," Melissa told Matt Lauer Thursday on Today. "I think she'd be happy that what I still have is in my closet near my shoes."

 

The Fashion Police host also addressed the lawsuit she settled with the clinic where Joan stopped breathing during throat surgery in August 2014. She died a week later in a New York hospital.

If that's true it's totally disgusting. And yes, it's illegal in most public places unless she got permission which I seriously doubt.

I think Joan did the same thing with her husband? I also believe Joan would love it...now not sure how the law or others feel about this?

A bit irreverant, but how fitting for Joan.  Not too worried about the ash thing.

No one knows what Joan would think of it, do they?

It was probably Joan's wishes to have Melissa carry it out.
