It’s been three years since the heartbreaking news that our Rebel Princess had left us. But it seems like there has been a repeat of that loss for two of the last three years. First, we saw her ‘last’ Star Wars film “The Last Jedi” and in it she flew into space, appearing to die. Gut-wrenching! Then she used the force to save herself. I still find myself getting choked up with the goodbye scene wIth General Holdo.
“So much loss,” Leia says at the prospect of losing yet another lifelong friend. “I can’t take any more.”
“Sure you can,” Holdo says, smiling sadly. “You taught me how.”
Then Carrie ended up appearing in The Rise of Skywalker. I was thrilled they used existing clips and not CGI. And her scenes definately tugged at my heart once again. I am not complaining that she continues to be in movies at all. But at the same time, each time seems like another goodbye. So maybe the answer is to never say goodbye to Carrie. After all, to quote Luke Skywalker, no one is ever really gone. #CarrieOnForever
Billie Lourd and the rest of Carrie’s family are in our thoughts today.
I never know what to say to mark this day. On one hand, its such a sad day for most of us because we miss Carrie. But on the other hand, we should celebrate her life. So like her daughter, Billie Lourd, I’m going to use music to remember her by.
I miss you Carrie.
Today would be Carrie’s 62nd birthday. I will never forget her wit and wisdom. She showed us that we could live with our traumas and our mental illnesses. She made us laugh and inspired us with her strength. She is missed terribly.
Welcome to the home for fans of Carrie Fisher. If you’re like me, you’ve felt a disturbance in the force ever since the news of her heart attack and hospitalization last year. As a kid, Carrie was the first movie hero I ever had. But as I got older, she became the first celebrity that I ever admired and hero-worshipped as a person. She wasn’t perfect, I never put her on a pedestal, I admired her so much for being honest about her flaws and mistakes. Her attitude about her mental health issues changed my life and the way I dealt with my own problems, my family’s, and other people in my life. Since she died, I’ve felt a little less light and hope in the world. So I wanted to hopefully help other people have a reminder of Carrie whenever they need it.
Please stop by the gallery and look at large collection of photos. Currently, there are only public appearances, photoshoots, and Star Wars photos but I will be adding a new section each few days or week until its complete. Also, drop by the Memorial Book and leave a few thoughts about Carrie. I’d love for this to be the haven of all of her fans to come to share favorite memories and bond with other fans!
