I think it’s easy for most people to forget that celebrities are human beings. They live every day, eat, sleep, drink, make terrible personal choices, make wonderful decisions, fall in love, are blessed with beautiful babies, suffer illnesses, and die.
Carrie Fisher struggled with illness most of her life and I have no doubt her mother felt her every pain, as well as her own. That’s how it is for mothers and we never grow out of it.
Love your mother, love your daughter, while you still have them with you in this world. There is no escaping the heartbreak in this life, but the love and joy make it worth the ride. Please send up a prayer for Carrie’s daughter, Billie. She came from these two powerful women, but she lost them both almost at once.
