Joint Funeral Planned for Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher
A joint memorial service for Debbie Reynolds and her daughter Carrie Fisher is reportedly planned by their family.
Debbie Reynolds, 84, died from a suspected stroke on December 28, while grieving for her daughter Carrie Fisher, who died on December 27 at the age of 60.
Carrie Fisher, best known for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars series, died after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to LA.
Her brother, Todd Fisher, told the New York Daily News a joint service was “likely”.
Debbie Reynold’s son said: “It’s what we want to do, but we’re still working on the mechanics.
“We like the idea, if it’s at all possible. I think it’s appropriate.”
Todd Fisher has posted a cartoon depiction of his mother and sister together, reprising their most famous roles, alongside the caption: “This is a beautiful love story to witness in my 58 years. I miss them both so much. Love is everlasting.”
He announced his mother’s death on December 28, revealing that her last words were: “I want to be with Carrie.”
Todd Fisher confirmed to ABC News that there is currently no date or location for the mother-daughter funeral, but plans are in process.
Bruce Bozzi, the stepfather to Carrie Fisher’s only child Billie Lourd, said he was “honored” to be part of the Fisher and Reynolds family, posting a graduation picture of the 24-year-old Scream Queens’ actress alongside her late mother and grandmother.
He wrote: “It’s an honor to be your stepfather.
“As Carrie said to me years ago <<I’m a good stepmother>> I promise I will always be & the strength of these women live so vibrantly in you.”
