Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds' Family Considering a Joint Funeral, Todd Fisher Says
TMZ reported the Hollywood icon’s family members are leaning toward a dual service for the mother/daughter team, with a private, small ceremony staged before a larger memorial service.
“That is my preference,” Reynolds’ son Fisher, 58, told E! of the joint plans. “Obviously it’s not finalized, but I think that sounds like a grand idea given the beautiful story between them.”
Todd explained that while there is currently no date and no confirmed location for the mother-daughter funeral and memorial, plans are in process, ABC News reported.
Carrie, 60, was aboard an 11-hour flight from London to Los Angeles on Friday when she went into cardiac arrest. She later died Tuesday in the hospital.
Reynolds died a day later at the age of 84. According to reports, she was only thinking about daughter Carrie in her final moments. Todd said she told him hours before she was rushed to the hospital: “I miss her so much, I want to be with Carrie,” according to TMZ.
After their deaths, Todd tweeted a touching drawing of his mother and sister — writing, “This is a beautiful love story to witness in my 58 years. I miss them both so much. Love is everlasting.”
In addition to Todd, both are survived by Carrie’s daughter Billie Lourd, 24.
