When Carrie Fisher died in December 2016, the world lost a great wit, searing memoirist, and kickass space Princess. But Billie Lourd lost a mother, and on Mother’s Day, the actor posted an Instagram photo remembering Fisher.
She also reached out to folks struggling on Mother’s Day, which is a great day for moms and florists, but often much less so for people without mothers, or with toxic mothers, or with mothers who fit lots of other categories you can’t find in a drugstore card aisle. “We are not alone,” Lourd wrote. “Sending all my love and strength to anyone who needs it.”
Earlier this month, on Star Wars Day, Lourd posted another photo of her and Fisher, this time on the set of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Meanwhile, Gary Fisher has not posted on Instagram since April 27, and I am worried.
