Oh my dear, sweet Jean. It appears I forgot your birthday this year. I always try to spend a few hours on August 12 of each year, reading about you, looking at/learning about your work, and trying to learn new things about you. As if, somehow doing this makes up for how we tragically lost you at the ripe old age of 27. All of the the crowns for you tonight sweet prince.

Tonight is my Mum’s yahrzeit (the anniversary of her death). Tomorrow marks seventeen years since the day she died, Elul 16 5757 (September 18, 1997 on the civil calendar). I light candles in her memory on both the civil and Hebrew calendar anniversaries. Tonight, Dave lights one too. I wish I could light one for you every night, Mum. #mum #mummy #mom #mother #mothersanddaughters #yahrzeit #yahrzeitcandle #death #anniversary #memory #memorial #memorialcandle #deeharris #grief #neverforget #onlychild #kaddish #17years #seventeenyears #lazoo #glaza #deannabarbaraharris #bestmumever #cancersucks #thankg-dfordavefox #love (at Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles)

Thank you @janispug! You’re the best. We love you! 💛, Bella, Chunk, & Sprout

Dear @socalbrusselsgriffons and @lucalovessausages, WE ARE SO, SO SORRY that we were unable to attend the Griff Meetup this morning! We spent all last month in Lincoln, NE helping our Dad pack up all his belongings to move him out to LA with us, and then all last week (yes, 7 days) stuck in a moving truck with Mom and Dad in the most nightmarish roadtrip getting him here. It appears that we just haven’t quite recovered from the trip, as we just couldn’t get out of bed. Mom had a little bit of trouble too. Thanks again for the invite; we were delighted to be included! We would love to be invited to the next Griff Meetup. Please keep us on your invite list. 💗 #chunk #sprout #brusselsgriffonmeetup #brusselsgriffon #griffonbraxellois #petitbrabancon #socalbrusselsgriffons #sorry #lincolntola #roadtriphangover @blaine_griffon @boxerandthegriffs (at Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles)

On this, your first Friday as a Los Angeles Resident, I say to you my darling, Welcome Home. #iloveyoudavefox #welcomehome #lincolntola #losangeles #home #nomoreldr #budlight #flaskfinewines #thanksagainpeter (at Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles)

Since this morning, when the news broke that Comedian Joan Rivers had died today, I have been able to think of little else than what this day means for her daughter, Melissa. I know all too well how she will never forget this day, and yet, and the same time, will probably be unable to remember most of it. More importantly, I understand how this day will irreparably and irrevocably change her life forever. I hope she is stronger than I was when I lost my Mum. I hope it doesn’t break her like it did me. I hope she doesn’t fall apart, and spend decades trying to pick up the pieces … I hope, for Melissa’s sake, the fact that her mum was lucky enough to live twenty-five years longer than mine did, somehow softens the crushing suffocation of the blow an only child feels when her mother dies. Oh and they were so close. RIP Joan Rivers. RIP Mummy. #joanandmelissa #deeharris #mum #mummy #mothersanddaughters #rip #mourning #judaism #kaddish #shivah #worstdayofmylife #september181997 #thedaymyheartstopped #imissyoueveryminuteofeveryday #theywilltellyouitgetsbetterwithtime #theylie #itnevergetsbetter #itonlygetsdifferent 🐘 #mummylovedelephants 💗

Got my first pair of Gucci Horse Bit Loafers in 2000, when I was jusy a baby lawyer, at the Gucci Boutique on Rodeo Drive. I insisted on buying them in men’s sizes, rather than women’s, because I thought the women’s we’re so narrow they looked too much like those silly orthopedic shoes that old-lady nurses wear. Naturally, the shoes ended up being too wide for my feet. Nevertheless, I was so excited to show off my new loafers at my uber-conservative law office on the next business casual Friday … that is, right up until the moment I realized that they were so loose that the horse bits made a LOUD jingling noise with each step I took that sounded just like Christmas bells. SO embarassing. The newest, youngest, blondest, associate, just FREAKING JINGLING DOWN THE HALLWAYS. NO FREAKING BIGGIE. Needless to say, the teasing that went on after that episode was merciless and still gives me nightmares. 😢 (at Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles)
