Carrie Fisher’s brother is still “not so okay” with her death, and we wholeheartedly agree
It seems like just yesterday the world received the heartbreaking news that Star Wars actress and epic human being Carrie Fisher had passed away. But, as we approach the three month anniversary of her death, her brother Todd Fisher discussed the upcoming memorial and how he’s feeling after suffering such tragedy.
On December 27, 2017, Carrie Fisher, best known for her role as Leia Organa in Star Wars, passed away and just a day later, her mother and star in her own right Debbie Reynolds died as well. Of course, this was shocking and heartbreaking to the world but even harder to their family. Debbie’s son and Carrie’s brother Todd Fisher spoke to Entertainment Tonight about how he’s dealing with his grief for both his mother and sister three months later:
"I'm really OK with Debbie's exit, not so OK with Carrie's exit, 'cause Carrie was in the middle of what was, I thought, her finest hours," He explained. "Her creativity was peaking, the 'Star Wars' thing was obviously back in spades. Everything that she was doing was turning to gold."
We totally agree! Fisher said he was able to spend time talking to his mother after Carrie’s death and felt that “she was, like, asking [his] permission” to leave. Reynolds also changed her mind and decided last minute to be buried alongside her daughter. They’re relationship was totally Mother/Daughter Goals.

There will be a public memorial at 1pm on Saturday, March 25. You can stream it live on DebbieReynolds.com. Just make sure you’ve got your tissues ready!
