Todd Fisher has announced that his mother and sister will be buried together in a joint funeral. The mother and daughter, both iconic actresses are to be buried at Forest Lawn-Hollywood Hills. This is the site of many a celebrity grave, including Bette Davis, Lucille Ball, Liberace, Florence Henderson, Dick Van Patten and David Carradine. The date for the funeral has not been confirmed as yet but it will be a private affair.

There is talk of a public memorial but this too is still to be confirmed. Fisher’s body was released to the Family on Friday by the Los Angeles coroner’s office. Chief of operations, Brian Elias said that an examination had been done but did not refer to it as an autopsy and did not provide any further details except to say that there was no time frame for when they expected to complete the official determination of Fisher’s death.

Fisher, most famous for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars movies passed away on Tuesday aged 60. This came after the star suffered a heart attack on Friday during a flight from London to Los Angeles. Wednesday we received news that her mother, Debbie Reynolds, suffered a stroke and died in the hospital a short while later. Reynolds, 84, shot to fame after her legendary role in Singin’ in the Rain. The film legend was rushed to the hospital after suffering a stroke. She died that night.

Carrie’s brother, Todd Fisher, had reported that the death of Carrie was more than his mother could bear. “She said, ‘I want to be with Carrie,'” he said. “And then she was gone.” Todd posted this touching message and tribute to his late sister and mother on social media, together with a drawing of Reynolds in a Singin’ in the Rain outfit and Fisher in her Princess Leia costume: “What a glorious feeling. I’m happy again,” he shared lyrics from his mother’s movie then added, “This is a beautiful love story to witness in my 58 years. I miss them both so much. Love is everlasting.”
