"Two years ago today my mom left her earthly shell. I feel like I'm just beginning to understand her," the 46-year-old comedian wrote on Instagram on Saturday alongside gorgeous pics of her mom. "She had so many struggles and over her years persevered through all of them. She was raised in a time when girls were seen and not heard and went to college to find husbands instead of themselves."
"But she found her voice and she found her immeasurable strength and had great years after allowing herself her full potential," she continued. "And then her body was the fight and she battled for decades before that took her too. I miss you mom. You are a warrior."
