It's been six years since the passing of Carrie Fisher and while fans still mourn the loss of the Star Wars icon, one can only imagine how tough of a pill it is to swallow for the family and friends she left behind. Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd, who portrayed a younger version of Leia Organa in The Rise of Skywalker took to social media on the anniversary of her death to pen a moving tribute for the late actress.

On Instagram, Lourd admits that although the last couple of weeks have been the most joyful time of her life since her passing, she still grieves the loss of her "Momby" up to this day. She wrote: "It has been 6 years since my Momby died (feels like 2 but also like 705 at the same time?). And unlike most other years since she’s died, this year, these past two weeks have been some of the most joyful of my life. Giving birth to my daughter and watching my son meet her have been two of the most magical moments I have ever experienced."

"But with the magic of life tends to come the reality of grief. My mom is not here to meet either of them and isn’t here to experience any of the magic. Sometimes the magical moments can also be the hardest. That’s the thing about grief. I wish my Momby were here, but she isn’t. So all I can do is hold onto the magic harder, hug my kids a little tighter."

Billie concluded: "Tell them a story about her. Share her favorite things with them. Tell them how much she would have loved them. For anyone out there experiencing the reality of grief alongside the magic of life, I see you. You are not alone. Don’t ignore either. Life can be magical and griefy at the same time."
