Carrie Fisher’s death on December 27, 2016, is a pain that still hurts, and her mother Debbie Reynold’s death the next day was an emotional wallop that left most teary-eyed. They were best friends and family. Now they share a tombstone.
The tombstone, which was unveiled yesterday, has their names and birth/death dates carved into it. Atop it is a grecian-style statue of two women, one holding the other. It’s lovely.
Because they died within a day of each other, Reynolds and Fisher were memorialized together. Only Fisher, keeping with her mordant wit, was cremated and her ashes placed in an urn shaped like a Prozac pill. And only Fisher had pre-written her obituary notice as “drowned in moonlight, strangled by her own bra.”
Now that I think about it, I wonder what Fisher would say about the statue. Perhaps she'd want to encorporate another Prozac pill.
