May The Force Be With You Always, Carrie!

Like many of you TransGriot readers, I was shocked to hear that Carrie Fisher had suffered a heart attack while in the final phases of a flight to LAX.a few days ago and died today at age 60.

I am a huge Star Wars fan, and loved her as Princess and now General Leia Organa, but also enjoyed the other roles she was in during her career.

She was not just an actor.  Fisher was multitalented as an author, screenwriter, and producer who was also brutally honest and candida about her own life and other issues of importance.

One of my faves is from the Blues Brothers movie, when she played the M16 toting left at the altar fiancee of Jake Blues and ambushes him and Elwood as they are trying to stealthily escape through a utility tunnel at the Palace Hotel Ballroom packed with blues fans, police, and the Good Ol Boys Band.

Episode VIII is coming out sometime in 2017,  and it's going to be sad to see her in it knowing she is no longer in the same plane of existence with us.

May The Force Be With You Always, Carrie!   You'll definitely be missed by you family and your legions of fans around the world.

TransGriot Update:   Sadly, to make this story even more tragic, a little over 24 hours later, Carrie's mother Debbie Reynolds passed away due to a stroke at age 84..
