It was a show, not a memorial. That’s how Todd Fisher described the general public service he arranged for his sis Carrie Fisher and mommy Debbie Reynolds in Los Angeles on Saturday.
Held at the Forest Lawn Cemetery, the occasion drew more than 1,200 buddies and fans, or “extended family,” as Fisher put it. Those who couldn’t participate in had the ability to view online or follow along from a screen outside the event.
The event, held 3 months after Fisher and Reynolds’ deaths and two months after their real burial, was actually designed as a celebration instead of a somber memorial.
It was as joyous and theatrical as you ‘d expect for 2 Hollywood icons, together with some personal moments of reflection.
