This weekend, Carrie Fisher was laid to rest alongside of her mother, Debbie Reynolds who passed away on December 28th. Fisher was open about her mental health issues and would often make jokes about her struggles. Her humor was apparent at their private funeral when her ashes were carried in an urn that was the shape of a Prozac pill.

Carrie’s brother Todd was spotted at her mother, Debbie Reynold’s service with a giant porcelain Prozac pill-shaped urn. He told reporters that, “Carrie’s favorite possession was a giant Prozac pill that she bought many years ago. A big pill, she loved it, and it was in her house, and Billie and I felt it was where she’d want to be.”

The family of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher wanted to make sure that they were buried together. Todd added that Fisher and her mother were now “together, and they will be together here and in heaven.”

Fans agreed with the family’s selection on the urn. Many of which believed that the legend would have wanted to be buried in this manner.

Carrie was prescribed Prozac in order to treat her bipolar disorder. The anti-depressant drug was introduced in 1988 and has helped defined how people think about mental illness. In books, interviews, and even movies, Carrie has talked about her struggles with the disorder, as well as her struggles with addiction.

Todd told reporters that a public memorial service will be announced for the two actress soon.
