A very close family: Mother Debbie Reynolds and her two children, Carrie and Todd Fisher.
Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher: Their funerals; the HBO documentary that had already been filmed about their lives; and Todd Fisher – Debbie’s son and Carrie’s brother – is paying tribute to them on Twitter.
After dying one day apart from each other (December 27th, 2016 and December 28th, 2016 – respectively), Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds have left behind a very close family member – their brother and son Todd Fisher. He is now tasked with deciding if he should plan a joint funeral for his sister Carrie Fisher and mother Debbie Reynolds.
“That is my preference,” he shared with E! News. “Obviously it’s not finalized, but I think that sounds like a grand idea given the beautiful story between them.”
Oddly enough, both Reynolds and Fisher were set to star in the HBO documentary, Bright Lights: Starring Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher. HBO has yet to announce an air date for the documentary, but Todd Fisher thinks it’ll be a great way memorialize his mom and sister, “Remarkably enough, the [Bright Lights] documentary is the greatest tribute you can imagine to both of them.”
Todd has shared some beautiful tributes to both his mom and sister on Twitter…
