    Really not sure why this has hit me hard, I am really having trouble accepting she has gone. Not sure about you lot, but to me Carrie was incredible. Gone too soon, and will be much celebrated by me. Oh my, gone far too soon. RIP, and I'm sure that you are raising hell beyond the rim

    Carrie was often a keynote speaker at the Maui Writers Conference back in the nineties. I was usually assigned to "baby sit" her. She was a really good ****, witty and usually the smartest person in any room she walked into. Had a lot of laughs with her. I'm very sad. RIP.

    I agree. Woke up to here the news. In rather odd timing I was already set to see Rogue One with my Brother and Nephew. The last scene of the movie brought a tear to my eye. The first movie I ever saw in the theater was Episode IV. I grew up watching her.

    Thats a real bummer. While she will be remembered for star wars, her real legacy is her advocacy for mental health and specifically for people who are bipolar.

    Agreed, Steve.

    As a side note, she was one of the best "script doctors" in Hollywood. So many scripts went to her to fix something that didn't work, it would be hard to keep track of them all.

    Carrie's mom, famed actress Debbie Reynolds, just died of a stroke this afternoon. Oh, man.
    RIP

    According to the wishes in her will, Carrie Fisher's ashes were placed in a 1950's porcelain antique Prozac pill that was one of Carrie's prized possessions." (Her brother, Todd, shown below)

    Funny and witty in life, despite her demons. Funny and witty in death. Rock on, Carrie Fisher.
