The Midnight Mission 100th Anniversary Gala And Golden Heart AwardsCan you believe it's been a year?

On December 27, 2016, fans learned that Carrie Fisher had died. The accomplished writer and "Star Wars" icon had suffered a heart attack on December 23 during a flight from London to L.A. She was rushed to the hospital where she remained until her death. She was 60. The very next day, her mother -- screen icon Debbie Reynolds -- died at age 84, after suffering a stroke.

Fisher had already filmed her role as Princess/General Leia Organa in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," which was just released on December 15. Watching Episode VIII gave fans some bittersweet, heartbreaking final moments with the legend.

On the anniversary of her death, fans -- and her on-screen twin, Mark Hamill -- paid tribute, getting #CarrieonForever trending:

That last one. So perfect. Mark Hamill may regret what he said about Luke Skywalker's storyline in "The Last Jedi," but he said just the right thing to honor Carrie.
