CARRIE FISHER & DEBBIE REYNOLDS PUBLIC TRIBUTE

Debbie Reynolds




E! NEWS -- Todd Fisher is ready to celebrate his mother and sister's lives with their biggest admirers.

Close to one week before Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds will be remembered at a public tribute, one family member is sharing new details about what fans can expect.

According to Todd, this event is not just being done for close friends. Instead, it's being held for fans to celebrate two special lives.

"Because of Debbie and her connection to her fans and Carrie and her connection to her fans, we thought it was very important to create an event that would be able to give them all an outlet and a place to express," Todd shared with E! News exclusively. "I know that's what my mother would want and I know that's what Carrie would want."

"We created this forum so that everybody could participate, say their goodbyes and have some closure," he added.

According to a family source, guests will have the opportunity to see never-before-seen footage and photos of the Hollywood stars. Fans who receive a program will be able to read an interview featuring Debbie that was done just two weeks before her death.

E! News has also learned that close family friend James Blunt wrote a song about Carrie that will be played during a montage for the very first time.

"It's going to just be a very meaningful tribute to them and I think it's going to be more positive than anything else," Todd shared with us. "I think everybody will be on a major rollercoaster ride."

Carrie went into cardiac arrest while onboard an 11-hour flight from London to Los Angeles on December 23. She died four days later at the age of 60. Debbie passed away one day later at the age of 84 after suffering a stroke.

"She went to be with Carrie. In fact, those were the last words that she spoke this morning," Todd previously shared with E! News. "More specifically, she said that she really, she was under a lot of stress."

He continued, "She held it together beautifully, obviously, for the last couple of days but she was under a lot of emotion and stress from the loss [of Carrie] and it's pretty much what triggered this event."

The whole memorial service, scheduled for March 25 at 1 p.m. PST, is expected to be streamed live on DebbieReynolds.com.

DEBBIE REYNOLDS WANTED TO BE WITH CARRIE FISHER


Singin' in the Rain



E! NEWS -- When it came to Debbie Reynolds' final hours, the Hollywood icon had one heartfelt wish: She wanted to be with her daughter Carrie Fisher.



Shortly after news broke that the Singin' in the Rain star had passed away, Todd Fisher opened up to E! News about his mom's mindset.



"She went to be with Carrie. In fact, those were the last words that she spoke this morning," he shared with E! News. "More specifically, she said that she really, she was under a lot of stress."



Todd continued, "She held it together beautifully, obviously, for the last couple of days but she was under a lot of emotion and stress from the loss [of Carrie] and it's pretty much what triggered this event."



Debbie was hospitalized Wednesday afternoon after suffering a stroke at Todd's Beverly Hills home. She was ultimately transported to Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles.



On Tuesday morning, E! News also learned that Debbie's daughter had passed away after experiencing a heart attack while aboard a flight from London to Los Angeles. According to Todd, Debbie expressed to family that she really missed her daughter and wanted to see her again.



"She didn't get to see her because Carrie was on her way back from England and none of us really got to see her other than in the hospital," he explained.



As the family continues to grieve in private, many fans are curious to know how Billie Lourd is coping with two close family loses.



"Carrie's daughter is 24 years old. To have to lose the girls, it's just horrible," Todd shared with us. "She's got their genes but you can't even imagine. I can't imagine being 24 and having to do this and I'm 59."



Our thoughts and prayers go out to Debbie's family and friends during this difficult time.
