Debbie Reynolds was all set to spend Christmas 2016 with her family when Carrie Fisher, an actress, had a heart attack on a trip on December 23. Fisher passed away on December 27, a week later. The following day, Reynolds, her mother, suffered a stroke and died. Todd Fisher, her son, attributed his mother’s passing to grief.
Reynolds’ close friend Sue Cameron described that heartbreaking holiday season to People magazine, saying that the 84-year-old “Singin’ In the Rain” actress had a tree up all year and had even prepared the dinner when she learned that her daughter had become critically ill.
“When Carrie was flying in on the plane [from London], Debbie had already made sure the table was set,” Cameron said. “The menu, everything.”
According to People, Fisher, 60, had a heart attack while returning to Los Angeles on that flight. Days after her mother died, the “Star Wars” actress died in the hospital. You must see the Robbie Knievel De@th: Son of Evel Knievel, Dies At 60!
“There was no Christmas dinner. The table just sat there,” Cameron told People.
The holidays, according to Cameron, are bittersweet because they serve as continual reminders of Reynolds and Fisher.
“It’s almost as if they’ve never really gone. ‘Star Wars’ is back, and Carrie’s daughter, Billie, is becoming a star,” she said.
With a throwback image of herself as a baby with Reynolds and Fisher posted on Instagram, Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd paid tribute to her late mother and grandmother. Lourd urged anyone grieving the loss of a loved one to reach out to their friends and acquaintances for assistance in the caption.

“Happy holidays! (But also sad/emotional/weird/stressful holidays!) Sending my love to everyone who has lost someone they loved and is missing them a little extra today,” she wrote. “I see you. … Don’t grieve in silence. You’re not alone.”
She also shared an Instagram video of herself singing John Prine’s “Angel from Montgomery.” You can check below:

“You will lose someone you can’t live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up,” the caption read.
