The world is still reeling from the sudden losses of two of the most iconic women in Hollywood history, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. As devastated as we feel by the absence of the beloved and wildly talented mother-daughter duo, it cannot touch the grief felt by Billie Lourd, their daughter and granddaughter. For the first time publicly, Billie Lourd has talked about losing Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, posting a stunning photograph of the three amazing women together, taken years ago when Billie was a child.

Carrie Fisher passed away on December 27th at age 60, and Debbie Reynolds passed away the very next day at age 84.

Across the world, people have taken to social media to grieve these important and unforgettable women, and to send Billie as much love and strength as possible right now.

After her first days of mourning, the Scream Queens actress has shared this beautiful message and equally beautiful photograph on Instagram:
