Thank You, Carrie Fisher, For Being My Inspiration

Carrie Fishe

My heart is broken this morning due to the news that Carrie Fisher has died. I wish I had let her know what an inspiration she was to me, even if it was just through a letter.

I would write more about her, but that’s going to have to wait for another day. I feel like I lost a best friend and it’s hard to type through the tears.

Goodbye Carrie. I miss you already.

      Yes, it’s very sad. Her son said her last words were that she wanted to be with Carrie. A little later she had a stroke. I can’t imagine what it would be like to lose a child. Apparently it was more than she could bear.

    A remarkable woman, writer, mother, dog mama, advocate, actress, and so much more….our world has lost an extraordinary light.

      Yes she was, all of the above. I think we can best honor her by all being extraordinary lights as well. It’s a tall order, but I’m going to do the best I can.

    There is a hole in my heart. She made a difference in the MH community. She had chutzpah. I still want to be like her when I grow up.

      I want to be like her when I grow up too. I’m sorry you’re also grieving.

    I’m sorry. Our community lost a valiant leader, and we’re all feeling it. I think our blog community would make her proud, though, and I think every time we support each other we help to continue the work she started. Hang in there.
