Carrie Fisher's ashes placed in Prozac pill urn

by Emmy Griffiths

Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds were laid to rest at a joint funeral service on Friday, and the Star Wars actress's ashes were placed in an urn the shape of a giant Prozac pill.

The late 60-year-old's brother Todd Fisher opened up about the unusual choice, explaining to Entertainment Tonight: "Carrie's favourite possession was a giant Prozac pill that she bought many years ago. A big pill. She loved it, and it was in her house, and Billie and I felt it was where she'd want to be. We couldn't find anything appropriate. Carrie would like that. It was her favourite thing, and so that's how you do it. And so they're together, and they will be together here and in heaven, and we're okay with that."

Debbie and Carrie had a joint funeral

Over a hundred people gathered to say goodbye to the famous mother and daughter at their memorial service at the Hollywood Hills' Forest Lawn Memorial Park on Thursday, where stars including Carrie's daughter Billie Lourd, Meryl Streep and Stephen Fry delivered eulogies. Carrie tragically passed away in December after suffering a cardiac arrest, and Debbie passed away just one day later due to a suspected stroke. Todd spoke about sitting with his mother before she died. "She just left to be with Carrie," he told ABC News. "It wasn't that she was sitting around inconsolable, not at all. She simply said that she didn't get to see Carrie come back from London, she expressed how much she loved my sister. She then said she really wanted to be with Carrie. In those precise words, and within 15 minutes from that conversation she faded out and within 30 minutes, she technically was gone."
