It's been one year since Sarah Silverman's mother, Beth Ann O’Hara, passed away. The 45-year-old comedian sweetly marked the anniversary of her mother’s death with a touching Twitter post on Friday.

Silverman shared throwback photos where she sits on a porch with O'Hara, who is rocking her signature overalls.

"A year ago my mom left her human shell," she wrote. "So many times I went to all her this year, forgetting,"

O'Hara, 73, was a theater director and artist born in Connecticut. She founded the New Thalian Players in Manchester, New Hampshire, where she produced and directed 50 plays over the last 25 years.

Silverman opened up about one of the many lessons she learned from her mom in an ET interview last September.

"One time, she said, 'Sometimes all you have to do is be brave,'" she told ET as she wore overalls to honor her mom. "Just meaning [that] sometimes you just have to exist through things and they pass or you get to the other side."
