Carrie Fisher And Debbie Reynolds' Shared Tombstone Is A Testament To Their Love

The screen legends died within a day of each other.

Not even death can break the incredible bond between Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds.

The mother-daughter duo, who died within a day of each other last December, were laid to rest at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills the following week in a joint funeral service with friends and family. 

Now, the two have a resting place that speaks to their love for one another. Instead of two separate tombstones, Reynolds and Fisher share a large marble memorial that features a sculpture of two figures embracing one another. 

Fisher was reportedly cremated with some of her ashes placed inside a giant Prozac pill and buried with Reynolds.

Etched on the front of the headstone is, “Debbie Reynolds April 1932 - December 28, 2016” and “Carrie Fisher October 21, 1956 - December 27, 2016.” 

Mourners have covered the front of the memorial with flowers and candles in honor of the late screen legends. 

The Forest Lawn cemetery is also the final resting place to Hollywood greats like Liberace and actresses Bette Davis and Lucille Ball.

After experiencing a cardiac event on a plane, Fisher died at age 60. One day later, Reynolds was rushed to the hospital and died of a stroke at age 84, after helping organize plans for her daughter’s funeral. 

“She wanted to be with Carrie,” Todd Fisher, Debbie’s son, told Variety at the time. “In fact, those were the last words that she spoke this morning.”

And now she is forever.
