About fifteen years ago, I was browsing the internet and I saw carfish21 online from Beverly Hills. I thought to myself that that might be Carrie Fisher, and I asked her if she was indeed Carrie Fisher. She admitted that she was. We chatted for a few minutes. I told her how much I enjoyed Star Wars and her performances therein. She thanked me for the compliment. I told her that I wanted to read one of her books and asked for a recommendation. She said that all the books were good. I chose to read Postcards from the Edge.

Not only was Carrie Fisher an excellent actress, she also was a skilled writer in several genres. Carrie Fisher passed away suddenly yesterday. It is my hope that when I must exit this world, it will also be a sudden departure. I do not wish to linger becoming a burden to my family. Fisher timed her departure well; she will not be a witness to the Trump era. She lived a difficult life, in part because her mother was the superstar Debbie Reynolds
