Selma Blair Mourns the Death of Her Mother with a Touching Note

Selma Blair is mourning the death of her mom, Molly Cooke, who passed away this weekend at her home at the age of 82.

The 47-year-old actress took to Instagram to share a touching tribute to her mom, who she called her “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,” Selma wrote in her post.

She continued, “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.”

Selma also wrote about her eight-year-old son Arthur Bleick‘s love for his grandmother.

She wrote, “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.”

We’re sending our thoughts and condolences to Selma during this difficult time.
