It’s never easy losing loved ones, especially when it’s your mother and your sister.
On Friday’s episode of 20/20, Todd Fisher tells ABC News that it was his mother Debbie Reynolds‘ “destiny” to be with Carrie Fisher after the Star Wars actress passed away on Tuesday following a heart attack on a plane.
“From the family’s perspective, this is Debbie’s destiny… She didn’t want to leave Carrie and did not want to her to be alone.”
While we assume Debbie was absolutely distraught after losing her daughter, Todd paints a different picture.
“It wasn’t that [Reynolds] was sitting around inconsolable, not at all… She simply said that she didn’t get to see Carrie come back from London, she expressed how much she loved my sister… She then said she really wanted to be with Carrie… In those precise words, and within 15 minutes from that conversation she faded out and within 30 minutes, she technically was gone.”
Although the family is mourning the loss of the two actresses, they take comfort knowing they are together.
“We’re broken-hearted, those of us that are left behind… We also are happy that they’re together. It’s horrible, it’s beautiful, it’s magical they are together, it’s beyond words, it’s beyond understanding.”
