DEBBIE REYNOLDS FOLLOWS HER DAUGHTER, DEAD AT 84.
ICHEOKU says were William Shakespeare penning this, he would mold it in the character and plot of Romeo and Juliet; except that this time it was a mother's love for her child. Her beloved daughter succumbed to a massive heart attack and a distrust mother who finds completion in her deceased daughter found no reason to go on keep on living. She went to bed and woke up to a massive stroke; and the rest as they say is now history as she too has also transited to the world beyond, hopefully to rejoin her daughter. Whether the dead knows that they are dead and recognizes themselves over there is one thing; but regardless, Debbie Reynolds did not want to remain an earthling going through the pangs of mourning the loss of a beloved daughter. Icheoku says she is probably happier now that the burden of pinning away because of Carrie Fisher's death has been lifted off her shoulders.
One of her Icheoku's favorite statement: “I’m very religious. I believe that things happen and you have to go along with them. You don’t have to be angry and become an ugly person. You don’t have to become what the people are, who are attacking you. Love blinds all. I just had to grow up and realize that.”
Her daughter, Carrie Fisher, 60, died of massive heart attack on Tuesday December 27, 2016 and at 84, Debbie could not bear it and wished death would also take her away; and less than 24 hours later, her wish was granted as a massive stroke claimed her life. Now, instead of supervising her daughter's funeral arrangements and burial, she will most likely be laid side by side with her daughter in a wake keep and buried alongside each other. Icheoku says what a life we all live, which end or how it will end, none of us knows a jack about; and here, a mother's love has once again prevailed. This is atypical of together in life and together in death, as what love binds together, not even death can put asunder. May their souls Rest In Peace.
