Melissa Rivers Shares Sweet Throwback Photo of Mom Joan Rivers With Son Cooper

Melissa Rivers is using #ThrowbackThursday to remember some of the really good days.

The 46-year-old shared a sweet photo--of her late mother, Joan Rivers, who passed away on Sept. 4, playing with her son, Cooper--on her WhoSay page, writing, "Connecticut, 2004. Mom + Cooper = BFFs... A perfect day. #TBT."

Melissa's snapshot shows Joan (who was wearing denim jeans, FYI) pushing Cooper on a swing that hangs from a big beautiful tree in what we can only assume is a neighborhood park, unless it's their backyard, in which case, wow. Little Coop flashes his mom a grin as he enjoys the air he's getting on the swing with the help of grandma.

The New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner recently revealed Rivers' cause of death, issuing the following statement: "OCME has completed its investigation. The cause of Ms. Rivers' death is anoxic encephalopathy due to hypoxic arrest during laryngoscopy and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy with propofol sedation for evaluation of voice changes and gastroesophageal reflux disease. The manner of death is therapeutic complication.

"The classification of a death as a therapeutic complication means that the death resulted from a predictable complication of medical therapy."

Following the news, Melissa wrote on Facebook, "In response to today's release of the New York City Medical Examiner's report, we continue to be saddened by our tragic loss and grateful for the enormous outpouring of love and support from around the world. We have no further comment at this time."
