It has been two years since the world lost its princess and general with actress Carrie Fisher’s death. The actress’ sudden death took everyone’s breath away and left the world reeling and mourning for days. Fisher died in 2016 after suffering a heart attack during a flight from London to Los Angeles.

Tragedy struck again as one day later, Fisher’s famous mother, the legendary actress Debbie Reynolds, passed away.

Both Fisher and Reynolds are greatly missed but not forgotten, especially by the loved ones they left behind. Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd, in remembering her mother, posted an Instagram video of herself singing, writing that this was an activity they had both enjoyed doing together.

“It has been two years since my Momby’s death and I still don’t know what the ‘right’ thing to do on a death anniversary is (I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way about your loved ones),” Lourd wrote in the Instagram caption. “So I decided to do something a little vulnerable for me, but something we both loved to do together – sing. This is the piano her father gave her and this was one of her favorite songs.”

“As the song says, we must ‘keep on moving,’” Lourd wrote in the caption. “I’ve found that what keeps me moving is doing things that make me happy, working hard on the things that I’m passionate about and surrounding myself with people I love and making them smile. I hope this encourages anyone feeling a little low or lost to ‘keep on moving.’ As my Momby once said, ‘take your broken heart and turn it into art’ – whatever that art may be for you.”

While the world did lose its Princess, its General, its hero and has been definitely a little darker without the light of her life, laugh, sass, we can take great comfort in knowing that she did leave behind one incredible talent and resilent daughter in Lourd. We also know for a fact that Fisher would  be 100% proud of her right now.
