But while fans mourned the loss of the cultural icons, Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, mourned the loss of a mother and a grandmother.
On Monday, the 24-year-old Scream Queens actress broke her social media silence to share a heartbreaking tribute to both beloved women and thank everyone for their support during this difficult time.
"Receiving all of your prayers and kind words over the past week has given me strength during a time I thought strength could not exist," Lourd wrote alongside an old photograph of her, Fisher and Reynolds.
"There are no words to express how much I will miss my Abadaba and my one and only Momby. Your love and support means the world to me."
Fisher passed away on Dec. 27, several days after suffering a heart attack on a plane. Her mother, Reynolds, passed away the following day on Dec 28.
Both actresses will have a joint funeral and be interred at Forest Lawn-Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles. According to Reynolds' son, the funeral will be private.
