Todd Fisher has broken his silence on the deaths of his sister, Carrie and mother, Debbie Reynolds.

Star Wars Actress, Carrie Fisher passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest before her mother died from a suspected stroke. 

Speaking to ABC News, Todd has opened up about his loss. 

He said, "[My mom Debbie] said that 'she really wanted to be with Carrie' in those precise words,"

"Within 15 minutes from that conversation, she faded out. And within 30 minutes, she technically was gone"

He continued, "She started to have a stroke and effectively went to sleep and didn't wake up. She closed her eyes peacefully like you're going to sleep, and she literally went to sleep and left."

Todd also confirmed that his mother and sister will be buried in a joint private funeral for the family and a public memorial is also being considered.
