Carrie Fisher & Debbie Reynolds Growing Up Together In 31 Touching Vintage Photos

Carrie Fisher and her mom Debbie Reynolds, who recently passed away just one day apart, didn’t always have a smooth relationship. “I found it difficult to share my mother with her adoring fans who treated her like she was part of their family,” said Fisher while presenting her mother with a lifetime achievement award at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Still, the two screen legends grew closer in the years before their deaths, and when Fisher died, aged 60, from a heart attack on December 27th, TMZ reported that Reynold’s parting words to her son, Todd, were, “I miss her so much. I want to be with Carrie.” Just fifteen minutes later, Reynolds suffered a fatal stroke at the age of 84. In tribute to this much-loved, and much-missed duo, see below for a heartwarming and occasionally heartbreaking collection of photographs of mother and daughter throughout the years.
