Obituaries are usually a way to honor people after they've passed away. Well, this Galveston, Texas family sort of took a different approach, and wrote one of the most brutally honest obituaries I've ever seen.
The death this week of writer, actor, and advocate Carrie Fisher has come as a devastating blow to her fans at the end of a difficult year. Best known for her performance as Princess Leia in the Star Wars movies, Fisher was a pop culture icon, and one of the most inspiring figures in the sci-fi canon.

To honor the passing of a legend, and to thank her for the role she played in our lives, we've collected some of our thoughts and reflections on the many different sides of Carrie Fisher.
