“There are a limited number of seats available, and it will be on a first come first come, first seated basis. There are no tickets, it is first come, first seated. There will be room for overflow in the huge lobby as well as the outside with screens to watch and hear the service.”
Fisher was aboard an 11-hour flight from London to Los Angeles on Dec. 23 when she went into cardiac arrest. She died four days later at UCLA Medical Center. She was 60.
Fisher’s cause of death was listed as “cardiac arrest/deferred,” according to her death certificate.
Reynolds died a day later, on Dec. 28, at the age of 84. She suffered a stroke at her and Fisher’s property when she was rushed to the hospital. The Singin’ in the Rain star died from a blood vessel that ruptured and caused bleeding in her brain.
Her official cause of death was an intracerebral hemorrhage.
The actresses, who were featured in HBO’s Bright Lights documentary, were laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles on Jan. 6. Reynolds was buried with some of Fisher’s ashes, which were in an urn shaped like a Prozac pill.
