It is true that someone can die of a broken heart Debbie Reynolds passed away the next day after her daughter Carrie Fisher. Debbie’s final words were “I want to be with Carrie.” Yes, in a nutshell, my childhood took a beating in 2016. Personal I lost my grandpa Tyler and a dear school friend in 2016.
