One day after her daughter Carrie Fisher died, Debbie Reynolds, most famous for her comedic and musical talents in films like Singin In the Rain and The Unsinkable Molly Brown, as well as turns on Broadway and appearances on popular tv series like Will and Grace, has passed away from a suspected stroke. Her son Todd told the press that shortly before she died Debbie stated: “I want to be with Carrie.” While their relationship was rocky at times, it was clear that they had mended their fences quite awhile ago and were extremely close. If there’s any comfort that can be taken from this tragedy, it’s that they’re once again together.

I gave it all that I had, and it’s gratifying that others seem to be receiving it so well.
On Carrie Fisher:
People used to call her ‘Debbie Reynold’s daughter. Now they call me Princess Leia’s mother!
