Debbie Reynolds and her daughter Carrie Fisher‘s deaths over the span of two days have left the world reeling — and mothers, grandmothers and daughters everywhere are shocked and saddened by the news.

The Hollywood tributes have been steadily pouring in, and on Thursday Kris Jenner took to Instagram to share an emotional post honoring the two icons and mourning the tragic loss.

“Absolutely heartbreaking and unimaginable,” she captioned a picture of Fisher, Reynolds and Reynolds’ son Todd Fisher in 1972.

“As a mother I cannot imagine the pain and heartbreak of losing a child,” she continued. “A loving and devoted mother, grandmother and a true Hollywood legend… Debbie Reynolds, you will be forever missed but never forgotten!! My love and prayers are with Debbie and Carrie’s family…”

Reynolds was rushed to the hospital from her home in Beverly Hills Wednesday afternoon for treatment of a possible stroke. The star, who was 84, died several hours later.

Reynolds’ death came just one day after Fisher died on Tuesday. The star had previously suffered a massive heart attack while flying from London to Los Angeles on Friday.

On Tuesday, Reynolds had taken to social media to thank fans for their support in the wake of her daughter’s death.

“Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter,” she wrote on Facebook. “I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop.”
