The late and very great, Carrie Fisher, took her leave among the greats in 2016 but left us with so much beauty in the world. Known for her spectacular roles in Star Wars, Harry Met Sally, and her steel wit on Twitter, the world was to, say the least, shocked from her passing. And in SF style, the people memorialized her passing with beautiful flowers and portraits from her many roles in life and on-screen.

A lightsaber tribute is said to be going up on 18th and Castro later this week. The LucasFilms HQ however had many visitors who lined the Yoda statue with letters, flowers, and tributes to the late actress. Covered in diet Coke cans, handwritten letters, and memorabilia from the film — the die-hard fans felt a blow to the chest with the news. Fisher passed from a heart attack earlier this week.

On Sunday at 6:30 p.m., the Roxie Theater will be screening the film based on Fisher's semi-autobiographical novel Postcards From the Edge, starring Meryl Streep.

We thank Carrie Fisher for giving girls a voice to be powerful, brave, and above all — accomplish their goals.
