Melissa Rivers finally found a place to pay tribute to her mother.

Joan’s daughter said she and her 14-year-old son Cooper scattered her mother’s ashes while vacationing in Wyoming last month.

“Coop and I took our annual family vacation to Wyoming,” Rivers said during an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “[The] first without my mom and scattered some of her ashes there so we can still be together every August as a family.” (RELATED: Ben Stiller: I Never Got To Make Peace With Joan Rivers)

Joan died almost a year ago after a routine medical procedure went awry, and Melissa said she will spend the one-year anniversary quietly.
