"If life's not funny, then it's just true – and that would be unacceptable," Lourd said, echoing a maxim of Fisher's. "Even when she [Fisher] died, that was what got me through that whole thing. When Debbie died the next day, I could just picture her saying, 'Well, she's upstaging me once again, of course – she had to.'"
Fisher died after suffering a heart attack on an airplane from London to Los Angeles. After her death, a toxicology report revealed the late actress had drugs in her system at the time of her death. One day after Fisher died, Reynolds suffered a stroke and died.
Both actresses were buried at Hollywood's Forest Lawn Memorial Park. A large marble memorial sculpture of a mother and daughter was unveiled in their memory in May.
