Journalist Alicia Quarles said it best on Instagram, “I believe you can die from a broken heart. They say the greatest pain a parent can feel is having to say goodbye to their child.” Those words rung true as she posted a photo of a young Debbie Reynolds lovingly holding her daughter Carrie Fisher, who died yesterday following suffering cardiac arrest on a flight back home to L.A. over the weekend that rushed her to the hospital.
Just a day after the world had to process losing Princess Leia, now another staple actress in Hollywood is gone. Debbie Reynolds was 84. After suffering a stroke on Wednesday, Reynolds was taken to the hospital where she later died. Reynolds’ son Todd Fisher told Variety, “She wanted to be with Carrie.”
For many Debbie Reynolds was known as playing Kathy Selden opposite Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor in “Singin’ in the Rain,” while newer generations loved her as the beloved grandmother Aggie Cromwell in “Halloweentown.” No matter what project her face was attached to, her talent and remarkable grace is the legacy she passed through to her daughter Fisher and granddaughter Scream Queens actress Billie Lourd.
My heart just breaks for Billie right now. My deepest prayers are with her during this difficult time. Billie there’s many people who love you who are with you in prayer. Stay strong babe!
