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. ?????????? ????®???????????????????? ???? ??????????????????????????, ??????®?????????????????????? ????????? ??????®? ??????????? ?????®??????
