“I miss her so much, I want to be with Carrie.”
Reportedly, those were Debbie Reynolds last words before succumbing to death on Wednesday, December 28, after daughter Carrie Fisher’s death.
According to her son Todd Fisher, his 84-year-old mother who was distraught with Carrie’s passing was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday morning with a suspected stroke, as they were talking about Carrie’s funeral arrangements.
Family sources revealed Reynolds actually had several strokes this year and was in failing health.
Discovered on a beauty pageant at age 16, Reynolds was one of Hollywood’s screen legends, skyrocketing her career in the 50’s and 60’s with remarkable musicals “Singin’ in the Rain” and “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.”
Aside from having a successful film career, Reynolds also made waves in the Broadway stage with several productions like “Irene,” “Debbie,” and a stage production of “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.”
