Four days after suffering a heart attack during a flight from London to Los Angeles, actress Carrie Fisher has passed away.
Sixty years old is far too young. We all curse 2016 for taking SO MANY high profile celebrities in 12 short months (including George Micheal who died on Christmas Day). Everyone wanted Carrie to beat the 2016 celebrity curse, and obviously, we wish she could have lived a much longer life; but if her heart attack complications would have taken her from us next week, 2017 would have started off just as crappy as 2016.
Many musicians, comedians and actors have taken to social media to pay tribute to the woman most famously known as Princess Leia.
Tribute included William Shatner, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie’s mother, Debbie Reynolds.
Carrie Fisher was smart, funny, talented, surprising, and always a hell of a fun time to be around. Family Guy will miss her immensely.

Carrie Fisher was so many things to so many people. Couldn’t simply label her one thing. She could do anything & will be missed by everyone

I saw Star Wars IV over 50 times in the theater in 1977. @carrieffisher helped shape my entire life! RIP 🙁

The fact that “Postcards From The Edge” inspired me even more than “Star Wars” is really saying something. #CarrieFisher

Brutal to have lost two of my first female and male crushes within days of one another. Rest in peace Carrie Fisher and George Michael.
