RIP Carrie Fisher

2016 is really ending on a sour note now. We've lost so many beloved people this year that it's downright depressing. For cripes sake, I'M 60! :o

Yeah, it's been a bad year for celebrity deaths. I had a feeling when I heard she has a heart attack on the plane that it wouldn't end well.

And the year isn't over yet.

I believe I watched one of her last interviews about a week ago on the Graham Norton BBC show. Creepy. She looked just fine then and still had her sense of humor. Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) released some of his old behind the scenes photos from some of the first three Star Wars movies. Gads he's tall. He made Fisher look downright tiny. He even makes Ford look stubby. :lol:

Debbie died of a broken heart from losing her child. And 2016 isn't over yet.

The news claimed she died of a stroke, but they didn't elaborate. It must have been the stress. No parent should have a child die before them.

My step Sister passed away 1.5 yrs ago at 52 from cancer. My step mom is still going but it took a lot out of her. Now her oldest daughter had breast cancer surgery. Not an easy time for sure.
