Carrie Fisher And Debbie Reynolds Are Honored With A Heartfelt Public Memorial

"These were my girls", Todd Fisher, who helped organize the public memorial, told those who had gathered to honor the memory of his famous sister and mother.

The event, featuring humour, music and dance, was a chance for fans to remember the legendary Hollywood pair following a private service earlier in the year. "Because my mother didn't like memorials or funerals". Family, friends and fans attended the service, which was public. "I've dedicated my life to sharing this joy with the world through Debbie Reynolds Dance Studio".

Before her death, Fisher had completed filming for her part in the latest "Star Wars" episode, "The Last Jedi", which is due for release in December. Across the stage, near a piano, sat an empty chair with Reynolds' name on it.

The very next day, Carrie's mother, the legendary Debbie Reynolds, died after suffering a stroke.

Three months after Carrie Fisher and mother Debbie Reynolds were laid to rest side by side, their family invited the public to join in the celebration of their life. It was a very peaceful exit that only my mother could orchestrate.

Pausing for effect, he added, "She was trained in Hollywood, where they teach you to make a great entrance and a great exit".

Didi Gregorius will miss Yankees opener, likely more time
NY could slide Starlin Castro over to shortstop, or use Ronald Torreyes or Tyler Wade to fill in while Gregorius is on the shelf. Gregorius is among a handful of major-league players to leave their WBC team because of injuries.

Comedian Dan Aykroyd and actresses Rene Russo, Ann Blyth and Beverly D'Angelo were among the attending stars. It was a lesson she drilled into her kids and one that Carrie practiced when she found fame at the age of 19 as Princess Leia. He recounted Fisher's assessment of the film: "It's stupid and it's bad". "We knew movies would never be the same, and you just knew Carrie's life would never be the same". Fisher's friend James Blunt, who wrote his hit "You're Beautiful" in the piano-graced bathroom of Fisher's home, contributed a new recorded song that was played during a photo montage.

Actress Ruta Lee delivered a touching eulogy about Reynolds and her philanthropy. Carrie Fisher battled mental illness and addiction, exploring her struggles in the book "Postcards from the Edge". "I might have been able to save her again".

Within his turn at the podium, he also jokingly told how despite being briefly engaged to him, Carrie openly tried to rekindle her romance with singer Paul Simon, 75. He recounted how Fisher took him on worldwide trips and "gave me so many firsts". "It wasn't with Carrie, but she arranged it".
