Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds Get a Massive Headstone
After dying just one day apart from one another, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds were buried together at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood Hills. Placed over the weekend, TMZ and Daily Mail report that the mother-daughter duo now have a finalized headstone, and it’s massive.
The headstone features a yellow granite base with the legendary actors’ names and dates etched on the face. Pretty simple, all things considered. They just happen to be on a really, really hunk’a stone. Then there’s the monument at the top featuring two goddesses, presumably mother and daughter, holding one another.
Fans have already begun visiting the site and leaving flowers. One fan reportedly left a note saying “May the force be with you always.”

Fisher died at the age of 60 on December 27, 2016 after a cardiac arrest just days prior while on her way home from London. Reynolds died at 84 on December 28, 2016 after suffering from a stroke. The grief over her daughter’s death was believed to have taken a toll on Reynolds’ health. Her last words were “I want to be with Carrie.”
There was a public memorial service on March 25, 2017. Fans from all over the world paid tribute to one of Hollywood’s most prominent and beloved families. Per Carrie Fisher’s request, her remains were cremated and stored inside a container that looks like a giant Prozac pill. It was placed next to her mother’s remains.
Carrie Fisher’s final performance will be the reprisal of her iconic role as General Leia Organa in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, coming out in theaters December 15, 2017.
