    Debatable, her mother Debbie Renolds just joined her due to a stroke while planning Carrie’s funeral.

    Debbie Reynolds’ death is hard to take. She was always “alive,” in a survivor’s “I ain’t down yet” sense. She projected her Molly Brown persona onto her real self so well that no one outside of her circle could correctly differentiate them. I guess Carrie Fisher’s death did get her down, finally.

    While it seems acutely sad, and certainly was, there are also positives to see. One, they had a wonderful relationship for so many years, which is almost uncommon among “celebrities.” And two, she chose to die. Many people don’t have the opportunity to make that choice, but die in terror. Certainly we all are going to go when our time is up (if we don’t become aware of any more of these it means we’re next) and choosing to die isn’t necessarily bad. It’s at the least arguably better than being alive and wishing one were dead. It’s when generations die out of order that things become tragic. Depending on how much one cares for one’s pet, it’s not a dissimilar experience, even though less traumatic than a human death for most people.

    Carrie’s description of her father’s behavior is quite appropriate and sort of remarkable for the times in which it was said. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/debbie-reynolds-dead-singin-rain-724101

    Carrie was quite an interesting character. http://www.vanityfair.com/style/2016/12/carrie-fisher-parents-debbie-reynolds-eddie-hollywood

    Very interestingly, Taylor left her jewelry to Reynolds in her will. http://heavy.com/entertainment/2016/12/debbie-reynolds-elizabeth-taylor-eddie-fisher-carrie-death-dead-scandal-friendship-affair-love-marriage-husband-relationship/

    There was more to these people than I expected.
