Mark Hamill paid tribute yesterday to his late co-star Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds whose public memorial was held on Saturday in California.

Hamill tweeted out images of Fisher and Reynolds along with the touching caption:

“We Remember Them… As long as we live, they too shall live. For they are a part of us all.”

In a separate tweet, Hamill shared more images of him and his late co-star having fun behind the scenes of the classic Star Wars trilogy as he recalled Fisher’s sense of humor:

“Then there was the time she promised if I went 1st-she’d heckle my funeral. Fiercely funny-I know she would also like us all to laugh today.”

Fisher — the glue that held the rebellion together — passed away at age 60 after suffering a major heart attack while on a transatlantic flight from London to Los Angeles in December. Reynolds, who became a Hollywood icon after her role in Singin’ in the Rain tragically passed away at 84 due to a stroke just one day after the death of her daughter.

The event, organized by Reynold’s son and Fisher’s brother Todd Fisher, took place at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills with over a thousand in attendance. The two stars were celebrated with a dance tribute from Debbie Reynolds Studio and music from Star Wars composer John Williams, the Gay Men’s Chorus of L.A. and singer-songwriter James Blunt. Gary the Dog, R2-D2, and Dan Akroyd were also in attendance.

Fisher will be seen on the silver screen later this year as she reprises her role as General Leia for the last time in Star Wars: The Last Jedi when it hits theaters on December 15, 2017.
