On her official website, catherinehickland.com, Catherine Hickland (ex-Lindsay, ONE LIFE TO LIVE et al) penned a touching memorial to her late mother-in-law, Debbie Reynolds, and sister-in-law, Carrie Fisher, who passed away in late December within a day of each other. Hickland, who married Reynolds’s son, Todd Fisher, in 2012, wrote an entry on her site called, “No Words Remembering Debbie and Carrie.” She writes, “My being hurts…. I’ve now been home for 5 days, the first three spent with my face planted in my pillow. My body finally fell apart. Three weeks of little to no sleep, incredible compounding stress, keeping emotions in check to get through what needed to be gotten through, all takes a toll. But then, you know all this. A broken heart is a broken heart, and who hasn’t had one of those? We are all in this life together.” She shares intimate memories of her life with the family, adding, “What’s happened has me contemplating life, and how tenuous it can be. These events have taught me the most valuable lesson anyone can learn through a crisis: life can change in an instant. In one single moment, life changed in an unspeakable way, as it does for millions of others, on any given day. To all of you, I say this: I spend a lot of time thinking about you. I pray for you and want you to know that your loved ones are at peace. They may have graduated to Heaven, but they never really leave us, because Love, is eternal. Our thoughts of them keep them alive in our hearts.” For the full story, head to Hickland’s site.
