Debbie Reynolds Had Christmas Dinner Table Set for Carrie Fisher Before Their Deaths

It has been three years since the deaths of legendary actresses Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds and now more details have been revealed about their final days.

Carrie suffered a medical emergency on an airplane from London to Los Angeles on December 23, 2016 and she died four days later. Her mother Debbie died the next day after suffering a stroke while planning Carrie‘s funeral.

Now, a friend of the family has revealed that Debbie had already set the dinner table for their Christmas celebration before the tragedy happened.

“When Carrie was flying in on the plane [from London], Debbie had already made sure the table was set. The menu, everything,” writer Sue Cameron told People. “But there was no Christmas dinner. The table just sat there.”

Sue also opened up about Debbie‘s love of the holiday.

Debbie kept a Christmas tree up 24 hours a day, all year,” she said. “Debbie just loved Christmas.”

“I think in a way they’ve never left because there are constant reminders about their lives,” she added. “It’s almost as if they’ve never really gone. Star Wars is back and Carrie’s daughter, Billie, is becoming a star.”
