Carrie Fisher popularly known as Princess Leia from the Star Wars franchise passed away on December 27, 2016, due to a sudden illness on the flight from London to Los Angeles at the age of 60.
To pay her a tribute, Billie Lourd, Fisher’s daughter, shared a clip on her social media platform, Instagram, in which she is singing “Landslide.”
Along with the video, the post said, “It has been 5 years since my Momby died (I don’t like to say lost – it makes it sound like I could find her like I find my car in a parking lot when I don’t remember where I parked it – I always find my car – I can’t find my Mom). “We loved to sing. We loved Fleetwood Mac. We loved this song. It echoed in our living room throughout my childhood, playing slightly too loudly as she scribbled her marvelous manic musings on yellow legal pads.”
Moreover, Lourd also said the lyrics, “well I’ve been afraid of changing ‘cause I built my life around you…but time makes you bolder” to mark the 5th death anniversary of her mother. Along with it, she added, “I’m working away from home right now and one night when I was having a particularly grief-y moment this song came on and the lyrics spoke (well actually sang) to me more than they ever had before. I didn’t know who to be or what to do after my mom died. I was afraid of changing because I had built my life around her. Then she was gone. And I had to rebuild my life without her. And it wasn’t (and still isn’t) easy. But time has made me bolder. I never stop missing her but I have gotten stronger with each passing year. And if you’re going through something similar time will make you bolder too. Sorry for this cheesy lyric analysis. But it’s true!!!”
Apart from Fisher’s daughter, Mark Hamil also paid a tribute to the princess with a screenshot of the “Last Jedi” credits, which read, “In Loving Memory of our Princess Carrie Fisher.”
