Many have expressed their love and support for actress Billie Lourd as she deals with the death of both her mother and her grandmother.
Lourd had the unimaginable burden of losing her mother, Carrie Fisher, and her grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, over the course of two days last week. Prominent stars and everyday people have all expressed their support and sorrow for Lourd throughout the week, as the actress stayed silent on social media.
The 24-year-old has now broken her silence, posting a new photo of herself with Fisher and Reynolds.
Receiving all of your prayers and kind words over the past week has given me strength during a time I thought strength could not exist. There are no words to express how much I will miss my Abadaba and my one and only Momby. Your love and support means the world to me.

"Receiving all of your prayers and kind words over the past week has given me strength during a time I thought strength could not exist," Lourd wrote in the photo caption. "There are no words to express how much I will miss my Abadaba and my one and only Momby. Your love and support means the world to me."
Lourd followed her mother and grandmother into show business. In Fox's Scream Queens, her character Chanel #3's appearance was largely modeled after Fisher's Princess Leia, with the actress frequently wearing earmuffs in a similar style as Leia's hair buns. She also had a small role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens as Lieutenant Connix, co-starring alongside her mother, who reprised her own iconic role.
Fisher and Reynolds will be buried together in a joint service, with a date not yet known to the public. A larger memorial service is expected as well. Fisher died at the age of 60 after suffering from cardiac issues on a plane the previous week. Reynolds died one day later, with son Todd Fisher telling the press that the iconic Hollywood legend said, "I want to be with Carrie." Reynolds was 84.
While Fisher and Reynolds would become estranged when the former became a superstar in her '20s, the pair ultimately reconnected and bonded like never before. Their lives are chronicled in the upcoming HBO documentary Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, which will premiere this Saturday on the channel.
