A Dark Day For The Galaxy

Carrie Fisher, my all-time favorite actress (and the boyhood crush of every red-blooded American male my age) has passed away. She was only 60 years old.

Carrie Fisher, the actress best known as Star Wars‘ Princess Leia Organa, has died after suffering a heart attack. She was 60.

Family spokesman Simon Halls released a statement to PEOPLE on behalf of Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd:

“It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 this morning,” reads the statement.

Ironically, I heard the news as I walked in the front door after taking Erik and Kevin to see Rogue One. Fisher was the one Hollywood actress who could do no wrong in my eyes. I didn’t care about her drug abuse, I didn’t care about her politics, I loved her unconditionally. She was always Princess Leia to me, and barring that, at least the Mystery Woman from The Blues Brothers.

Fisher was the most beautiful actress I ever laid eyes on, and I was happy to see her again in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I will miss her terribly.

Honestly, I felt as if lost a family member. I guess that makes me insane, but that’s how I feel.

To respect Carrie’s passing, there will be no more posts today. Rest in peace, Princess.

UPDATE: Carrie’s mother, Debbie Reynolds, died today after suffering a massive stroke. God bless and keep them both.

    Song for Athene – John Taverner, Composer
    Alleluia, Alleluia.
    May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.
    Alleluia, Alleluia.
    Remember me O Lord, when you come into your kingdom.
    Alleluia, Alleluia.
    Give rest O Lord to your handmaid, who has fallen asleep.
    Alleluia, Alleluia.
    The Choir of Saints have found the well-spring of life and door of paradise.
    Alleluia, Alleluia.
    Life a shadow and a dream.
    Alleluia, Alleluia.
    Weeping at the grave creates the song Alleluia.
    Come, enjoy rewards and crowns I have prepared for you.
    Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.
