Mark Hamill's simple statement bring tears to everyone's eyes.

He later released a longer statement on Facebook that is a lovely example of their deep friendship.

Harrison Ford released a statement that highlights her bravery.

"Carrie was one-of-a-kind… brilliant, original. Funny and emotionally fearless. She lived her life, bravely…My thoughts are with her daughter Billie, her mother Debbie, her brother Todd, and her many friends. We will all miss her."

Peter Mayhew, who played Chewbacca shared his love for her

Her activism over the years is outstanding. She spoke out for mental health in ways that so many are afraid to do.

Her work over the years to bring light to mental illness is absolutely inspirational.

She had the greatest sense of humor and made the best demands for her obituary. In her one woman show "Wishful Drinking" she said this:

"George comes up to me the first day of filming and he takes one look at the dress and says, "You can't wear a bra under that dress." So, I say, "Okay, I'll bite. Why?" And he says, "Because. . . there's no underwear in space." What happens is you go to space and you become weightless. So far so good, right? But then your body expands??? But your bra doesn't—so you get strangled by your own bra. Now I think that this would make for a fantastic obit—so I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra."

Goodbye Carrie Fisher. Thank you for all you have done.
