Todd Fisher Talks About Carrie Fisher’s and Debbie Reynolds’ Final Moments

ABC News got a chance to speak with Todd Fisher about his incredible loss. In just two days he lost a mother and a sister. The way Todd handles this loss is really inspiring, making you to believe that Carrie and Debbie are in a better place and most importantly they are not alone, they have each other…



From ABC News:




We all want to believe that there is something more after the end of the road. There probably is. We no longer mourn the loss of Carrie. We rejoice that we lived in the time of her path. We’re happy to have known her, even though it was only from the big or small screen.

Thank you Carrie and Debbie. Clear skies and see you on the other side…

    Wow !

    Todd says, Debbie didn’t die of a broken heart. I disagree. Carrie was the world to her and she also had stated just a little while before, that she wanted to be with Carrie. Then the stroke. IMO, she died to be with Carrie, which to me, her death broke her heart.

      If that was true, that would prove that indeed you can die by “losing your will to live”, just like Padme in III

      • December 31, 2016 at 10:36 pm

        padme was supposedly physically healthy… and 50 years younger.

          In my head canon it is the effects of Anakin’s force choke, her drop on the metal floor and the strength of the dark side force within him that killed her off.

            either way works for me, i never lost any sleep over it.

        • January 1, 2017 at 1:31 am

          I guess the force choke can do some physical damages…

          • January 1, 2017 at 2:12 am

            yes but briefly being choked isn’t akin to suffering a stroke while already in ill health. further, if healthy people could drop dead because they simply “lost the will to live” then all people suffering from crippling depression needn’t bother with suicide. george was going for Shakespeare in that moment, not reality.

    • December 31, 2016 at 9:33 pm

      I agree. Her last words were “I want to be with Carrie”, reportedly.

    • December 31, 2016 at 11:50 pm

      While I am sure that it did indeed break her heart, it is far more likely that her age and the pressure of the events generated the stroke that claimed her life and her desire to be with Carrie was just a very well timed coincidence.

      Having said that, there are many documented cases of elderly spouses passing away very soon after the other spouse dies, so perhaps there is something in it after all….although in reality it probably again boils down to the stress put on the body.

        The stress of a broken heart


    • January 2, 2017 at 5:28 am

      TL;DR: “I know better than her son.”

  • December 31, 2016 at 11:04 pm

    Debbie sort of looks like a younger, more attractive version of Doris Roberts there.

  • December 31, 2016 at 11:16 pm

    That was really touching. For as sad as this whole event was the way he explained it made it feel better. I know I’m going to be getting extra feels when seeing Episode 8 though.

  • January 1, 2017 at 1:21 am

    I don’t necessarily believe in the afterlife but I have to admire the strength of this guy. This is an incredible reaction.

  • January 1, 2017 at 6:02 am

    Moved by this. I hope they are together,

  • January 1, 2017 at 8:27 am

    Hopefully this does not sound incredibly insensitive, because that’s not how it’s intended. I was just thinking that Padme (Leia’s mother) died of a broken heart.

    • January 1, 2017 at 7:03 pm

      I was thinking the same thing. Life imitated art.

  • January 1, 2017 at 9:54 am

    Does anyone at this site edit the content for things that may be offensive. I don’t think the shot at those of faith in this article was very smart. It was insensitive for someone to decide to throw shade at people who believe in an afterlife. “There probably is,” are you kidding me.

    For religious folks you just said their beliefs are probably true, maybe.

    Do anyone even think how that sounds to people of faith like Christians, who not only believe in an afterlife, but that Jesus rose from the afterlife… You know the story.

    Look, I’m not even deeply religious that this offends me. I have a PR guy who looks over content for a few nonprofits to make sure we do our best not to offend our supporters.

    I hope this site starts being more careful, people read articles not for personal messages about politics or religion.

    Last week an article denigrated millinials and anyone who accepts that phycology of handing out participation awards. As if telling a child they did well for trying is such a bad thing. Didn’t like the political message.

    • January 1, 2017 at 10:28 am

      I tried to write a reply that wouldn’t offend you and realized that wasn’t possible. Calm down, fella.

    • January 1, 2017 at 12:16 pm

      Here’s a suggestion for you when you feel offended: harden the fuck up. Ever heard the phrase “offense is taken, not given”? If you expect to go through life with everyone watching what they say in case they may offend someone, then you’re looking at a life of disappointment.

    • January 1, 2017 at 1:34 pm

      I’m an atheist, according to your logic, I should be offended by the very concept of including religious references in such an article by the author.

      But I’m not, do you know why? Because it’s stupid to get offended by such a bullshit. If you get offended by that, you WANT to get offended, just to have a reasons for whining and bitching.

      This crappy attitude diminishes the concentration of fighting real problems.

    • January 1, 2017 at 3:31 pm

      And that’s what you took from the article was it? Carrie Fisher, our Princess, has passed away and you’re worried about offending a few Christians? You throw a stick in the air and you’ll hit someone who is offended.

    • January 1, 2017 at 5:57 pm

      what a stupid selfish post get over yourself

    • January 1, 2017 at 6:43 pm

      What political message? You’re free to believe whatever you want. Your beliefs remain yours. You’re offended by “There probably is” when this sentence is partially biased at your advantage? I don’t get it.

      Personally I would have said “It’s a possibility.” Because we cannot go any further than that in our assertion concerning life after death. Do you have evidence? No. So, it’s a possibility. It’s up to you whether you choose to believe in it or not.

      In no way does that invalidate your belief. It’s a general way of saying things, that encapsulates all beliefs, and that remain neutral, out of pure respect for everyone.

    • January 1, 2017 at 7:02 pm

      It doesn’t matter. This isn’t about you. This is about Carrie.

    • January 1, 2017 at 9:59 pm

      Have you ever considered how it feels to everyone else when Christians proclaim their own beliefs to be true and all others to be false?

      And then you are offended when anyone questions your beliefs?

      You have a major blind spot….

    • January 2, 2017 at 12:11 am

      I am a Christian myself and an ordained baptist minister. And while I edit and write many articles for this site, I didn’t take a look at this one. That being said, I see absolutely nothing offensive in this post. (Using old Jedi mind trick) Move along. Move along…

    • January 2, 2017 at 1:24 am

      Carrie Fisher was an Agnostic of Jewish decent. In Judaism, there is no affirmative belief about the afterlife, and agnostics are unsure about the afterlife as well. The article matches her beliefs and culture. That’s called being respectful.

    • January 2, 2017 at 5:27 am

      That’s not even close to a shot. If that is something you find offensive, you must be offended all day long.

    • January 2, 2017 at 5:18 pm

      So “respect” is about acknowledging that the beliefs of some are accurate? What about other people’s beliefs?

    • January 3, 2017 at 7:12 am

      What is offensive in this article?
      Or Political?
      Clearly is an editorial/opinion from who has written it. And it is very respectful and well-meaning.
      They have their beliefs, they write about it, just respect them as we respect everyone beliefs.
      Christianity, Islam… is all about propaganda, so the rest of the world cannot express their thoughts to not offend the official point of view of religions?

  • January 2, 2017 at 2:42 pm

    “We all want to believe that there is something more after the end of the road. There probably is”

    oh, come on…

    • January 2, 2017 at 7:06 pm

      I always thought star wars let people indulge themselves in faith/hope albeit for those few hours we immerse ourselves. A kind of faith for those of us that are faithless. The truth about the universe is that no cocky scientist or preacher has the answer for the big questions, like the how’s and why’s of existance itself and the universe, so you never know what the true nature of these things could be, it could be one of an infinite number of posibilities, religion as we know it being one of the more unlikely posibilities. who knows maybe the force isn’t such a wacky fantasy after all. All i know, when i watch star wars It may as well be real, the force, the characters. In my mind Leia will live on.

      Thanks for sharing that.
