On Wednesday morning, actress Debbie Reynolds was making funeral arrangements for her daughter, Carrie Fisher. The 60-year-old star of “Star Wars” had passed away on Tuesday.
Then, as her son Todd Fisher told TMZ, Reynolds “cracked.”

As they were discussing Fisher’s funeral, Todd Fisher said his 84-year-old mother turned to him and spoke what would become her last words.
“I miss her so much, I want to be with Carrie,” Fisher said his mother told him.
Only a few minutes later, Reynolds suffered a massive stroke. Although she was rushed to a hospital, she died later Wednesday.
Fisher said that his mother had made plans for her own funeral, but had never made any for the death of her daughter. He indicated that the family will likely have a small private service for his mother and sister and a larger, more public service as well.
The Telegraph reported that Reynolds is survived by Fisher and her granddaughter, Billie Lourd, who is also an actress. It reported that Lourd will inherit Reynolds’ California estate.
Fisher told the Daily Mail that Reynolds had suffered multiple strokes during 2016, but that Fisher’s death was more than she could bear.
“She’s now with Carrie and we’re all heartbroken,” Fisher told TMZ.
“The only good thing about this is that my mom wanted to be with my sister,” he told ABC.
My sister has graduated to heaven, but she has left us all with so much of her,
It is a very sad time for my family and all her friends.

“The only thing we’re taking solace in is that what she wanted to do was take care of her daughter, which is what she did best,” he said.
Last Friday, Carrie Fisher suffered a massive heart attack while flying into Los Angeles.
