Wednesday marked one year since we lost Carrie Fisher, the actress, writer, and icon best known as Princess (later General) Leia Organa in the Star Wars films. The anniversary came less than two weeks after the world got to see Fisher's final performance in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, so it was naturally an emotional time.

As a result, tributes poured in on social media from fans, co-stars, and friends, often using the hashtag #CarrieOnForever. Mark Hamill, who played Fisher's onscreen brother Luke Skywalker and has often spoken about how he considered her a real-life sister, posted an image to Twitter depicted her as a saint. Then there's Billie Lourd, Fisher's daughter known for co-starring in Scream Queens and appearing alongside her mother in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi

Lourd has often posted little tributes to her mother through her Instagram account over the last year, but on Wednesday she revealed something particularly special to honor Fisher one year after her death. She — alongside her father, the talent agent Bryan Lourd — traveled to Norway to fulfill one of Fisher's greatest wishes: Seeing the Northern Lights.

The touching message also begins with a phrase spelled out in emojis, something Fisher often enjoyed doing on Twitter. It reads "She drowned in moonlight, strangled by her own bra," an adaption of Fisher's own famous quote about how she'd like to die.

If you're crying right now, you're not alone.
