Equipped with smiles and punch lines, he explained to attendees that the public event "is a show and not a memorial, because my mother didn't like memorials and funerals".

"We shouldn't be here so soon in our lives", Aykroyd said of the woman who brought the iconic Princess Leia to life.

The ceremony started with a video montage using "Star Wars" music to show Fisher from infancy, displaying tender moments with her and her mother interspersed with highlights from her career.

Aykroyd recalled how he once saved Fisher's life, applying the Heimlich manoeuvre to dislodge a brussels sprout. I knew Carrie for a short while.

In an earlier interview, Todd said that "The last lyric in the song, it's a attractive song, is 'I'm here to let you know".

"We Remember Them", Hamill wrote in his first post.

During the ceremony, Reynolds was lauded for her work with the Thalians, an organization that has raised millions of dollars to help those suffering from mental health issue. "She gave her heart to everything".

After the first screening, they both knew she had been wrong.

It was a fitting tribute for two greats, who created some of Hollywood's most unforgettable characters.

Actress Ruta Lee sang "I'll Be Seeing You" in honor of Reynolds and there was even an appearance onstage by R2D2, the famous robot from "Star Wars".

Reynolds and Fisher often attended galas, red carpets and other events together.

Debbie Reynolds' son Todd Fisher told those who had come to celebrate the stars' lives at Forest Lawn Cemetery on Saturday that there were "no finer people" than his mother and sister. But before you get upset, there seems to be a solid reason. Her mother, Reynolds, who also had her breakout role at 19, in "Singin' in the Rain", passed away the following day at 84. "It was a very peaceful exit that only my mother could've orchestrated". Kathleen Campbell of Hollywood said, despite not knowing them personally, she "decided to come out and let them know that they had a lot of friends that they didn't know they had", according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Noticeably missing from the joyous and often emotional memorial at Forest Lawn Cemetery were Carrie Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd and the Star Wars actress' beloved French bulldog companion Gary.

"I feel they are part of my family".

Fisher's brother, Todd, who arranged the memorial, said: "This entire thing I'm calling a show, not a memorial".
