LOS ANGELES Stars and fans will gather Saturday for a public memorial to honor late actresses Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher almost three months after their deaths. The Singing In The Rain star's shocking death comes one day after her daughter, Carrie, died at the age of 60 due to a heart attack. A day later, her mother, Reynolds - who was 84-years-old - died following a "severe stroke'".

Taking the opportunity to correct a widely reported misconception, Fisher, 59, told "Entertainment Tonight" Wednesday that his mother did not die "of a broken heart". Todd Fisher described the artwork as the ideal lasting image of his mother and sister.

A public memorial service for Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher is underway and live streaming so fans around the world can be a part of it.

"It looked like she asked permission to leave, told me she was going to leave, told me she loves me, closed her eyes and went to sleep", he said in an interview with USA Today.

Mourinho: Premier League don't care how we do in Europe
Every other country gives its support to teams playing in Europe but I don't think the Premier League gives an "S". In an apparent reference to United's domestic fixture schedulers, Mourinho complained: "We have lots of enemies ".

"I don't want to leave Bryan Lourd out of this. [She's like], 'You're going to take my dog, ' and, you know, all these little instructions", he recalled.

He also pointed out that Debbie's friend and mentor Bette Davis and her buddy Liberace are buried nearby.

"When I was standing in the room the day after my sister died and we're in the hospital and my mother was dying, I mean, I was more heartbroken watching my niece than I was for myself". If you had told me this story and I wasn't there, I would have a very hard time believing what I saw. In the months since they have made a decision to give fans the chance to say their goodbyes. She reprised the legendary role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2016.

Another person struggling significantly following Carrie and Debbie's deaths is Billie - who lost both her mother and grandmother in the space of two days. "Everything that she was doing was turning to gold".
