On the third anniversary of Carrie Fisher's death, her daughter, actress Billie Lourd, shared a video of herself singing "Angel from Montgomery," along with a quote by author Anne Lamott about loss.
Lourd shared a similar video -- from what she's called the "TakeYourBrokenHeartAndTurnItIntoArt Bathtub Sessions" -- a few months ago, on what would have been Fisher's 63rd birthday.
In 2017, Meryl Streep gave a speech at the Golden Globes in which she said the late "Star Wars" actress once told her, "Take your broken heart; make it into art."
"You will lose someone you can’t live without and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up," Lourd wrote. "And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp."
Fisher was 60 years old when she died unexpectedly after suffering cardiac arrest; her mother, actress Debbie Reynolds, died the next day from a stroke.
On Christmas, Lourd, 27, penned an honest message about grief to her 1.3 million Instagram followers.
"Sending my love to everyone who has lost someone they loved and is missing them a little extra today. I see you. It’s okay if everything ain’t all merry and bright. It can be a mix of all of it. And it’s all okay," she wrote. "Feel all the feelings - the good and the not so good. Eat something delish they used to love. Put on one of their favorite songs. Tell a story about them. Cry about them. Call one of their friends you haven’t talked to in a while. Be kind and patient with yourself. Don’t grieve in silence. You’re not alone."
