Monologue Mania Day #1050 For Carrie   by Janet S. Tiger (c) Dec. 28, 2016

I am saddened by Carrie Fisher's death.

For a few reasons.  She was actually younger than I am - 60 to my now just 61.

She was a part of my youth - Star Wars.  Never my favorite movie, but a good one, and I thought she was a funny lady.  With a lot of life and now that is gone.

Of course, she will never be gone to the world as long as video exists.  She will always be Princess Leia to most, but to me, I loved her in other films, especially WHEN HARRY MET SALLY.  

Whatever role she was in, she was perfect for - and because I know actors, I know that was not a mistake or luck, but a lot of very hard work.

But the main reason I am sad is because......we were related.  My mother's sister, my Aunt Miriam, was married to my Uncle Henry (may they both rest in peace)  and my Uncle Henry had a brother, Art Cohn, who was killed in a plane crash with Mike Todd, the producer, who was married to Elizabeth Taylor, who, after Mike Todd, was married to Eddie Fisher who was married to Debbie Reynolds......who were the parents of .......Carrie you can see ...we were just like family!

May she rest in peace, my distant, related by......something or other......good night, sweet Princess....
