“My mother and sister were magnificent collectors, they amassed an amazing and diverse collection in their lifetimes,” Todd Fisher said in a statement (via Entertainment Tonight). “The size and scope of their collection rivals most museums. So in keeping with my mother’s wishes we have decided to share part of their magnificent collection with all their friends and fans.”

A portion of the proceeds will support two charities – The Thalians and the Jed Foundation.

Once the auction has been completed, the Fisher-Reynolds compound in Beverly Hills will be put on the housing market.

Todd Fisher speaks on stage during the memorial service for his mom Debbie Reynolds and sister Carrie Fisher on Saturday afternoon (March 25) at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles.

Carrie‘s daughter Billie Lourd decided not to attend the public event, members of the press in attendance tweeted moments before the service started.

Todd spoke about his mom’s heartbreak after Carrie passed away and how she asked for permission to leave this world.

“When Carrie died, my mother decided to change her plans a bit. My mother always said to me, ‘I never want to go to my daughter’s funeral service. I would like to be buried with Carrie.’ I didn’t know she was going to leave us that very next day and when she looked at me to ask permission to leave, she said she wanted to be with Carrie, and she closed her eyes and went to sleep. It was a beautiful exit,” Todd said.

Todd encouraged fans in attendance to visit Debbie and Carrie at their final resting place at the cemetery and he also told the story about how he picked the plots.

Todd Fisher Says Debbie Reynolds 'Asked For Permission' to Be With Carrie

Todd Fisher is recounting his final moments with his mom Debbie Reynolds, following the untimely passing of his sister Carrie.

The 58-year-old filmmaker told ET that after Carrie‘s death, Debbie began to run him through her own estate and made major changes about where and how she wanted to be buried.

“My mother said to me the night that Carrie died…we were talking that night and I didn’t know what was happening, but she was setting me up for her leaving the planet…My mother said, ‘I know that’s tough. It might be tougher even, you know…I don’t know for sure when I [will] go,’” Todd explained.

He added, “I was like, ‘Well, look, fortunately we don’t have to face that right now, you know, we just face this. But then she was like asking my permission [to go]…The next morning, we had a little further dialogue and she chose to leave the planet in front of my face two feet away…She literally looked at me and said, ‘I want to go be with Carrie‘ and closed her eyes and went to sleep.”

Debbie and Carrie‘s public memorial service is set to take place on March 25th at 1 PM PST and will be live-streamed on DebbieReynolds.com.
