Hollywood iconic actress Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds her mother will be having a joint funeral and be buried at the same cemetery, a family member said on Friday.
Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds will be buried together at the Hollywood Hills’ Forest Lawn Memorial Park.
Reynolds, who shot to stardom after her role in “Singin’ in the Rain,” and Fisher, known worldwide for her role as Princess Leia in the “Star Wars” franchise,” died one day apart this week.
After the joint funeral, they will be interred at Forest Lawn-Hollywood Hills, Reynolds’ son and Fisher’s brother, Todd Fisher, told The Associated Press.
The cemetery is the final resting place of numerous celebrities, including Lucille Ball, Dick Van Patten, Liberace, Florence Henderson, David Carradine and Bette Davis.
A date for the funeral has not been set but will be private, he said.
Carrie Fisher died Tuesday at the age of 60, four days after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
Her mother Reynolds died a day later at the age of 84, after being taken to the hospital earlier in the day.
Todd Fisher in an interview said that his mother didn’t die of a broken heart and wasn’t inconsolable.
” My sister Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds my mother are together right now,” Todd Fisher said Friday after the Los Angeles Coroners Office released Carrie Fisher’s body back to the family following an examination into her cause of death; the results of initial tests were inconclusive.
Todd Fisher continued saying that Reynolds said she didn’t get to see her daughter when she came back from London, and then said how much she loved her.
“She then said that she really wanted to be with Carrie, in those precise words, and within 15 minutes from that conversation, she faded out, and within 30 minutes, she technically was gone,” he said.
Todd Fisher added that while the family is broken-hearted by their deaths “We also are happy that they’re together.”
