The public is invited to pay their respects to two beloved stars Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher this Saturday (March 25th 2017 at 1 pm) at Forest Lawn Memorial Park-Hollywood Hills.
Todd Fisher made an announcement on his Website in regard to the upcoming memorial service:
“On Saturday, March 25th, there will be a public memorial for my Mother, Debbie Reynolds, and my sister, Carrie Fisher at Forest Lawn Cemetery Hollywood Hills at the Hall of Freedom. We will be celebrating their lives with friends, family members, and the people who loved them, you.
The service will begin at 1:00 pm and immediately afterwards, those who want to walk to their final resting place are welcome to do so. There are a limited number of seats available, and it will be on a first come first come, first seated basis. There are no tickets, it is first come, first seated. There will be room for overflow in the huge lobby as well as the outside with screens to watch and hear the service.
The event will be livestreamed at www.debbiereynolds.com”
Just to clarify, the public memorial service for both stars who have died only one day apart and are buried together will take place at the Hall of LIBERTY (not Freedom!) at the Forest Lawn Cemetery Hollywood Hills. The Hall can seat up to 1,000 people however those who arrive too late to be seated will still be able to follow the service on screens from a large lobby as well as from outside.
Among those expected to pay tributes to the stars are James Blunt who will premiere a tribute song, Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and Debbie Reynolds dance school’s students.
A true Hollywood royalty, Debbie Reynolds will always be the sunshine in “Singing In The Rain”. Carrie Fisher – an accomplished and successful author and an actress – will forever be remembered as Princess Leia. Understandably, the funeral services were private. This mother and daughter however played a role in the lives of millions of their fans, too. Now is our opportunity to say goodbye and pay our respects to both stars. Be there to honor the stars who passed on AND to let Todd Fisher and Carrie Fisher’s daughter (Billie Catherine Lourd) know that their loved ones touched MANY lives….
