Within 24 hours, Todd Fisher lost his mother and his sister.
The director and businessman is the 58-year-old son of Debbie Reynolds, and the younger brother of Carrie Fisher, who passed away on Wednesday December 28 and Tuesday December 27, respectively.
The impact of the family’s tragedy has reverberated throughout the world, with fans and peers paying tribute to the enormous contributions of the two Hollywood icons. But it was a drawing shared by Todd the morning after his mother’s passing that seemed to say it all.
“This is a beautiful love story to witness in my 58 years,” he tweeted. “I miss them both so much. Love is everlasting.”
Alongside the text, Todd posted a drawing, presumably made by a fan, of Carrie and Debbie together again. Carrie, wearing her Princess Leia costume from her break out role in Star Wars, and Debbie, dressed as Kathy Selden from her break out role in Singin’ in the Rain, walk side by side into the light, with their arms wrapped around one another.
