“My sister has graduated to heaven, but she has left us all with so much of her,” he wrote to his followers Wednesday morning, including a photo of a young Reynolds holding toddlers Carrie and Todd. “It is a very sad time for my family.”
Hours later, Todd Fisher announced to the media that his mother had died.
“She wanted to be with Carrie,” he told Variety.
Debbie Reynolds, Carrie and Todd Fisher, and their immediate family were very affectionate toward one another, as indicated by tweets shared by Todd throughout the year.
The 58-year-old film producer would often share photos of himself with his sister, mother or his in-laws on Carrie’s side.
In a post written earlier this month, he said his family had “always been close.”
“That’s why my mother had me,” he wrote in early December. “So Carrie would have someone to look after her.”
That tweet was in response to a fan who shared a photo of Todd and Carrie as babies.
