Miss You Carrie! So much so that three days after seeing The Last Jedi, I went to see it again….and am going again this week. I’m drawn to her in ways I’m still trying to understand. I will be looking for her image in the upcoming Women’s March in a few weeks. Maybe this is why. She has become my beacon of hope. Gone, but never forgotten. Long live the resistance!
Billie Lourd has offered a moving tribute to her mother Carrie Fisher on the anniversary of the former Star Wars actress’s death.
Lourd, 25, travelled to Norway to witness the Northern Lights in memory of Fisher – an adventure she never had the opportunity to complete while her mother was alive.
She wrote: “My momby had an otherworldly obsession with the northern lights, but I never got to see them with her.
“We journeyed to northern Norway to see if we might “see the heavens lift up her dark skirts and flash her dazzling privates across [our] unworthy irises”. And she did. I love you times infinity.”
Carrie Fisher loved her dog Gary. And he knew it. In fact, he still feels her presence. Gary was taken to see a screening of The Last Jedi and recognized Carrie Fisher as General Leia, according to a tweet from an ABC reporter. As reported by Veronica Miracle, Gary watched the movie on Fisher’s former assistant’s lap and his ears perked up each time Leia appeared onscreen. No, we’re not crying, we just have some Tatooine sand in our eyes. The screening was likely a highly anticipated one for the pooch, as he previously shared an Instagram photo of him watching the trailer for the film with the caption, ““Just watched the new trailer of The Last Jedi and my mom looks more beautiful than ever. #garymisseshismom#garyloveshismom #garyloveshisfans.” …
Our fur babies miss us when we’re gone. Gary was with Carrie on her fateful flight home last December. He was her therapy dog to help her stay calm by his steadfastness and unconditional love. He’s since become a celebrity in his own right and was a sell-out at the recent San Diego Comic-com this past July.
The dog has become even more popular since Carrie died. He recently surpassed 150,000 Instagram followers with help from posts including a touching tribute to Carrie on what would have been her 61st birthday last month. He followed up his San Diego Comic-Con appearance at Kansas City Comic Con and at L.A. Comic Con. A portion of the money the dog gets for appearances goes to charity.
Carrie’s long-time assistant, Corby McCoin is Gary’s new mommy and is doing great, according to Carrie’s half-sister Joely Fisher, whose new book Growing Up Fisher: Musings, Memories, and Misadventures, has just been published.
