Todd Fisher: Debbie Reynolds Asked 'Permission to Leave' After Carrie's Death

LOS ANGELES Stars and fans will gather Saturday for a public memorial to honor late actresses Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher almost three months after their deaths.

Reynolds suffered a stroke and died at 84 on December 28, a day after Carrie Fisher died at 60 of cardiac arrest.

Reynolds' son, Todd Fisher, told Variety not long ago that the memorial was what his mother would have wanted.

Regime retakes rebel-held areas in Damascus
Syria's conflict erupted in March 2011 with protests against Assad's rule but has evolved over the years into a complex civil war. Military experts said the rebels are trying to make a morale gain, and to release pressure on their comrades in other areas.

Todd Fisher organised Saturday's memorial to give fans an opportunity to honour his mother and sister.

In addition to Blunt's song, the memorial will also include a dance tribute by The Debbie Reynolds Studio, and a performance by the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles. "I have film of that and it will be in the memorial.' And when I was editing that, it ripped my heart out". I don't know for sure when I [will] go.' I was like, 'Well, look, fortunately we don't have to face that right now, you know, we just face this.' But then she was like asking my permission [to go]. "And she really just said to me, 'You know, I know that was really hard on you losing your sister". He said: "The public is invited because that's how my mother would want it". The idea that somebody would have to deal with that kind of loss back to back, moment to moment - I mean we'd just had this terrible loss and then here you are just a handful of hours later standing in a different hospital in a different room. In the months since they have chose to give fans the chance to say their goodbyes. She also finished her part in the upcoming "Star Wars" film "The Last Jedi" before she passed away according to Comic Book. "I can assure you that there isn't going to be a dry eye in the house at different times". Costumes and memorabilia will be displayed, and the public will be permitted to visit the pair's gravesite following the service. "Her creativity was peaking, the 'Star Wars" thing was obviously back in spades.
