A PRAYER FOR CARRIE FISHER'S FAMILY

  • By Jesse Jameson
  • 29 Dec, 2016
Carrie Frances Fisher (October 21, 1956 – December 27, 2016) was an American actress, writer, producer, and humorist. She was the daughter of singer Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds. Fisher was known for playing Princess Leia in the original Star Wars film trilogy. Her other film roles included Shampoo (1975), The Blues Brothers (1980), Hannah and Her Sisters (1986), The 'Burbs (1989), and When Harry Met Sally (1989).
Fisher wrote several semi-autobiographical novels, including Postcards from the Edge, the screenplay for the film of the book, an autobiographical one-woman play, and a non-fiction book based on the play, Wishful Drinking. She worked on other writers' screenplays as a script doctor. In later years, she earned praise for speaking publicly about her experiences with bipolar disorder and drug addiction.

Fisher died at the age of 60 on December 27, 2016, four days after going into cardiac arrest near the end of an airplane flight. Her mother, Debbie Reynolds, died the following day of a suspected stroke.

PSALM 55
My heart is severely pained within me,
And the terrors of death have fallen upon me.
Fearfulness and trembling have come upon me,
and horror has overwhelmed me.
(Psalm 55:4-5 NIV)
