#ripcarriefisher😔💔 we will miss you and your smile more than you will ever know. Thank you for making the world a better place and for creating one of the greatest heroines in film history. You will live on in our hearts and on our screens for years to come. 2016 has stolen so many treasures, but in my humble opinion, the shiniest gem in the lot was just taken from us and in what has been an already heartbreaking year, this one truly hangs heavy. Thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time.
