💋My first person. 💋. My deepest heart still beats with what you gave me. I worship you , Mom. ❤️ Molly Cooke died yesterday. In her home. She was formidable, funny, quick , striking and generous. She often gave the shirt off her back, a trait I have adopted. Gifts of herself. My mother was a brilliant judge and one of the only women in her law school class. She was my first style icon, my muse , my prize. My whole life, I kept my eye on the prize. And , now, it is a very queer feeling to soften my gaze. She had many friends and admirers, cousins nieces, (and a nephew) a sister, a son in law. most of all, she had us, her girls, her grandchildren ,Jim, Nicholas, Frances and Arthur Saint. My sisters and myself, we loved her so much. Our lives will never be the same. Mom, Arthur understood you so sweetly and I am grateful and pleased you loved him. I wish I could pay a back at home tribute to you … to be in the company of my sisters: Lizzie, Katie, Mimi. Thank you for your love , your loyalty . Usually, it is when us girls are Together as sisters , when we can better show what an original you were , Mom. A great. I hold you from here. Oceans of love, Baby bear, the original Saint. #mollycooke 💛 #magistrate #mymoon #mymom #howardsternfan 🤷♀️😂⭐️ #enjoyedeverysecondofseinfeld #thankyou

#fbf When I was in isolation this summer, I imagined peace. In all ways. A reckoning. An understanding. Of time alone. Of the help I was asking for. For my son. I could not be with him. I held this #frownyfacedolls of my son. I acknowledged it’s normal to not always have a smile. But I learned to Smile. For real. And I thank you all for your support. And kindness. I am here. I am adjusting. And I have hope we can all adjust. And give care to all who need in your life. Thank you to all the nurses at northwestern with #stemcelltransplant team of #drburt @frownyfacedolls ☹️. Ps. My heart is with @amandakloots and @nickcordero1 . They are a light. Praying with all the sincerity and joy I know for strength and healing and miracles for this fight of their lives. #powerofprayer 🙏 @cassblackbird I think you did take this. 🤎
She thanked fans for their “support and kindness” and also praised the nursing staff at the hospital where she was receiving the treatment.
