This is a sad, sad ending to this mother and daughter. Two very well known actresses gone within a day of each other. Reynolds’ last words might explain why she passed away… grab a tissue. You will need it.
…only one day after [Carrie Fisher’s] death, her 84-year-old mother, Debbie Reynolds, died from stroke-related conditions Wednesday.
Reynolds started her career at just 16 years old; she’s best remembered for her role in “Singin’ In The Rain” where she sang and danced alongside Fred Astaire.
According to the Daily Mail, Reynolds suffered multiple strokes this year, her son Todd Fisher said. And while her health was beginning to fail, her family believes it was her daughter’s death that ended her time on Earth so abruptly.
Todd told TMZ that Reynolds “cracked” early Wednesday morning from grief.
He said as they were discussing funeral arrangements for Fisher, she said one final sentence… and it broke his heart:
“I miss her so much, I want to be with Carrie.”
Just 15 minutes later, Reynolds suffered a stroke. She was rushed to the hospital, but passed away hours later.
