Carrie Fisher's brother knew how the Star Wars star wanted to be laid to rest.

Todd Fisher spoke to reporters moments after Debbie Reynolds’ funeral in Los Angeles, one day after his sister’s private memorial, where he explained the choice of urn that was selected to hold Carrie’s ashes.

"Carrie's favorite possession was a giant Prozac pill that she bought many years ago. A big pill," Todd explained. "She loved it, and it was in her house, and Billie and I felt it was where she'd want to be."

"We couldn't find anything appropriate. Carrie would like that," he added. "It was her favorite thing, and so that's how you do it. And so they're together, and they will be together here and in heaven, and we're OK with that."

Todd also gave an update on how the family is holding up during this difficult time.

"Everybody's as settled as we can be, and we're not going to go any further," Todd shared. "We'll have a bigger service down the road for the public and all the family friends, but this was a private family service and we're -- it was fitting and it was beautiful."

"We have so much of them that was left behind," he added. "All of my sister's words and all the movies, and all the things that they created. That's what we need to remember."

Most of all, Todd will remember his mother and sister as strong, generous women.

“They were both Molly Browns of sorts,” he said fondly, explaining, “Molly Brown's a movie my mom made years ago and it's about a very strong woman. They were very, very strong women right to the end.”
