Todd Fisher Hoping Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds Will Have a Joint Funeral


Carrie Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, may be laid to rest together.

Todd Fisher -- Carrie and Debbie's brother and son, respectively -- says in a new interview that a joint funeral is what he is hoping for, though the decision hasn't been finalized. Todd was spotted on Thursday at the Westwood Village Memorial Park and the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

"That is my preference," he told E! News about a joint funeral. "Obviously it's not finalized, but I think that sounds like a grand idea given the beautiful story between them."

A source close to the Fisher family tells ET that the family is in the process of making funeral plans. However, the source says that there is doubt that Debbie and Carrie will be laid to rest by each other's side.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles Coroner officials tell ET that they are in possession of Carrie's body. The autopsy is currently on hold due to the family now dealing with Debbie's death as well, according to TMZ. Families can contact the Coroner and ask that they not perform an autopsy.

On Wednesday, a source close to the late Carrie said that the Star Wars actress' friends and family were stunned over her death. "[Carrie's] close friends were all hoping she'd pull through," the source said. "They are in shock."

Carrie died Tuesday morning after going into cardiac arrest aboard a flight from London to Los Angeles last Friday. She was 60 years old.

Todd previously ET that his mother told him that "she missed Carrie and wanted to be with her" on Wednesday -- one day after Carrie died -- and then 15 minutes later she had a stroke. An ambulance responded to a medical call from Reynolds' Beverly Hills home at 1:02 p.m. and transported the Hollywood legend to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, though she died shortly after at the age of 84.

"She missed her daughter and wanted to very much be with her and she had discussed some other things," Todd told ET. "She had been very strong the last several days, [there was] enormous stress on her, obviously. And this morning she said those words to me and 15 minutes later she had a stroke and virtually left."

On Thursday, Todd tweeted a moving drawing of Carrie and Debbie's iconic big-screen characters -- Star Wars' Princess Leia and Singin' in the Rain's Kathy Selden -- embracing one another.

"This is a beautiful love story to witness in my 58 years," Todd wrote. "I miss them both so much. Love is everlasting."
