Carrie Fisher was a magical person on a mission.

She was best known for her role as Princess Leiaher sharp wit and her self-deprecating humor. 

She was far more than a princess-turned-general

She was an actress, a producer and an unapologetic author.

She was an advocate for mental health, addiction recovery and women.

She embraced her flaws and made the human experience fun.

Carrie Fisher died at 60 years old.
