We all saw it coming but we didn’t want it to be true. Carrie Fisher suffered that massive heart attack on a plane as she was coming home for Christmas. She was described as “unresponsive” when she was removed from the plane. What exactly does that mean? Unconscious, or no signs of life? After she was whisked to the hospital we were told that she was “stable.” Days later George Michael suddenly died and attention turned to him. Now Carrie is gone and we fondly remember laughing uproariously at her stage show “Wishful Drinking.” Carrie had plenty of problems in life and dealt with them all with her brilliant sense of humor. Not many children of famous parents achieve their own success like Carrie did. She was one of a kind. Hopefully her dog Gary was right beside her at the end.

    Well, from the sound of things, Carrie may have gone into cardiac arrest—that is, died–well before she was probably discovered to be unresponsive by a flight attendant, 15 minutes before landing.

    It was a long-haul flight–London to LAX–and it’s likely she was simply thought to be napping, for any length of time up to that point.

    In any case, she was oxygen-deprived for at least 10 minutes, which didn’t bode well. She never regained consciousness; the family obviously decided to end life support at some point.

    Luckily, Gary was with her throughout (and may have been dozing, too). They sure were sweet together. And she was AMAZING. She had that rare talent in Hollywood: true, sparkling,WIT.

    She will be missed.

    We were at the Simon & Garfunkel reunion concert at Dodger Stadium in 1982, when “a very special guest” popped out on stage: it was Carrie, who had just been married to Paul.

    She was a tiny, itty-bitty, young woman (our seats were practically in Orange County, but still); anyway, the packed stadium ERUPTED.

    It was a memorable affirmation. And it wasn’t hard to imagine how good it must have felt to be the recipient of it.

    So very sorry to see her go, but no one can deny that she–and her wonderful mother–had an incredible run.

    They are both irreplaceable.
