I only have one thing to say about this:


Still shocked that this happened. My mom got to meet her a long time ago.

I thought of going back to the beginning of the year here, page 145 with Natalie Cole, and listing
everybody gone from us, in this one post. But it's just too depressing to go through. Or post.

We lost a lot of artists, thinkers, sports heroes, politicians. It's a real Baby Boomers List, this past year.

I just heard about Carrie's passing like an hour ago, and I'm completely shocked and heartbroken. Not only was she amazing in Star Wars, but also in The Blues Brothers and SNL. Way to go off on a high note, 2016. :cry: :x

I was hoping that she'd pull through, but this is just horrible. I wonder how they're going to handle it either in this upcoming Star Wars, or the next.

^ In one of the reports that came out, she apparently had already filmed her parts in the next Star Wars film (#8).
And what she was currently involved with, was a book tour of her 8th (and last) book. It's actually based on the
diaries she kept as a young actress, in the first Star Wars! Poetic timing. Great person she was.
