Billie Lourd Honors Mom Carrie Fisher on Emotional Trip One Year After Her Death
Billie Lourd honored her mom Carrie Fisher with an unusual, emotional voyage. The 25-year-old actress revealed she took a trip to Norway to see the northern lights with her father, Bryan Lourd, as a tribute to the late Star Wars actress on the anniversary of her death. Fisher died last December at age 60 of a cardiac arrest. “My momby had an otherworldly obsession with the northern lights, but I never got to see them with her,” Lourd wrote next to two pictures showing green flashes lighting up the sky. “We journeyed to northern Norway to see if we might ‘see the heavens lift up her dark skirts and flash her dazzling privates across [our] unworthy irises.’ And she did.” “I love you times infinity,” she concluded. ?????????? ????®???????????????????? ???? ??????????????????????????, ??????®?????????????????????? ????????? ??????®? ??????????? ?????®??????

Kevin Sumlin, Butch Jones could be candidates for Arizona job
Kevin Sumlin and Butch Jones are two early names being mentioned in connection with the head coaching vacancy at Arizona.
