On Friday the Los Angeles coroner’s office released Carrie’s body to her family. “My mother and my sister are together right now,” Carrie’s bother Todd told the Associated Press. Todd said before his mother passed, Debbie told him, “I want to be with Carrie.”
Carrie passed away at age 60 after falling ill while on a flight from London to Los Angeles. Her mother, 84, died a day later after being rushed to the hospital, reports Mashable.
Debbie is best known for her leading role in the 1952 musical “Singing in the Rain,” opposite Gene Kelly. Recently she had gained recognition among younger viewers from her role as Aggie Cromwell in Disney’s Halloweentown films.
Debbie and Carrie had a close relationship, and often worked together on stage shows and talk show appearances.
Todd told 20/20, “We’re broken-hearted, those of us that are left behind. We also are happy that they’re together. It’s horrible, it’s beautiful, it’s magical they are together, it’s beyond words, it’s beyond understanding.”
Rest in peace, mother and daughter. Do you know anyone who has died of a heartbreak?
