Billie Lourd: Remembering Carrie Fisher 2 Years On

It was two years ago today that our princess, Carrie Fisher, died at the age of 60. Whilst Star Wars fans come to terms with the loss we should not forget her wonderful daughter Billie Lourd. Today Billie pays tribute to her late mother in the best way she can, through song, something that she did with her mother and grandmother. Her grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, died just hours after her daughter in 2016.

🎏🅾️®️ ♏️🅾️♏️🅱️🌱It has been two years since my Momby’s death and I still don’t know what the “right” thing to do on a death anniversary is (I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way about your loved ones). So I decided to do something a little vulnerable for me, but something we both loved to do together – sing. This is the piano her father gave her and this was one of her favorite songs. And as the song says, we must “keep on moving”. I’ve found that what keeps me moving is doing things that make me happy, working hard on the things that I’m passionate about and surrounding myself with people I love and making them smile. I hope this encourages anyone feeling a little low or lost to “keep on moving”. As my Momby once said, “take your broken heart and turn it into art” – whatever that art may be for you. ❤️
