Sarah Silverman pays tribute to late mother

Sarah Silverman has paid tribute to her mother on the first anniversary of her death.

The 45-year-old actress' beloved mother, Beth Ann O'Hara, died in August 2015 at the age of 73 and on Friday (19.08.16) Sarah took to Twitter to reveal how much she misses her.

She tweeted a picture of them together and wrote: "A year ago today my mom left her human shell. So many times I went to call her this year, forgetting (sic)."

Sarah was extremely close to Beth Ann and praised her "know-it-all" parent's outlook on life after her death last year.

She tweeted: "She was a know-it-all in overalls & two different colored socks. And defiantly, no bra.

"The woman who, when I was little, gave me detailed directions to a restaurant ladies room then secretly watched as I found my way to it on my own.

"The woman who went back to college at 42, and skinny dipped in ponds, and told me never to protect myself from a broken heart because it was so very worth the pain to get to experience love (sic)."

Sarah also publicly praised her mother - a producer and director known as 'mom' to a number of aspiring actors - when presenting her with a lifetime achievement award at the New Hampshire Theater Awards in 2003.

She said at the ceremony: "[She is] loving, nurturing, caring, colourful - she used to wear two different colour socks, I'm not sure she was aware of that - supportive, honest, strong and with endless creativity and energy.

"She gives us the feeling that we fill her heart with love and I think it's because we fill her heart with love. Mom ... we feel the same. you fill our hearts, as well."
