This has been a difficult week for Billie. This is the first birthday of either her mother or grandmother since they passed away. Billie’s uncle Todd Fisher, 59, hosted a public memorial for Debbie and Carrie on Mar. 25. Bille declined to speak at the event because it would be too painful for her. “There were no finer people I had ever know,” Todd told the audience at the memorial which was held in Forest Hills cemetery in the Hollywood Hills. “This show was designed for you to be in our living room as if we were all a big family,” he explained.
The memorial consisted of numbers from the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and Debbie Reynolds Dance School. James Blunt, 43, a longtime friend of Carrie’s, debuted the recording of a new song he wrote for her. Meryl Streep, 67 and Ed Begley, 67, were among those who attended as well. R2-D2 from Star Wars also made a heartbreaking appearance as the robot searched for Carrie’s character Princess Leia across the stage.
