12/30/16 – The deaths of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds

Posted on December 31 2016 by admin2

This week saw the heart-rending deaths of two notable women who were also mother and daughter to one another. A�On Monday the world mourned for actress Carrie Fisher, daughter of Debbie Reynolds, known for playing Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy. A�The very next day, Debbie herself sadly passed away from a stroke, or what some might say a broken heart. A�Reynolds’ son, Todd Fisher, said the stress of his sister’s death “was too much” for Reynolds. A�“She said,A�’I want to be with Carrie.’A�And then she was gone.”

Both Carrie and Debbie were #13 FCIRs with personalities that differed and possessed similarities. A�Both were outgoing, smart, spry leading ladies who could hold their own. A�Reynolds, however, portrayed more of a smiley, “feeling” demeanor than Carrie, whose humor was often dry, especially as she got older. A�It’s no secret, of course, that Fisher suffered from substance abuse for many years. A�In fact, she “smoked pot at the age of 13, used LSD by 21 and went through electroshock therapy to treat her mental health issues.” A�She was diagnosed as bipolar at 24 (more common among #13s than any other design). A�She was brutally honest about her condition, however, writing several books and helping thousands of people deal with their mental health issues.

Carrie’s father, Eddie Fisher, was famouslyA�known for leaving Debbie and marrying actress Elizabeth Taylor (#11 FCAL).

Our thoughts and prayers go to the friends and families of these two memorable, talented women.
