Carrie Fisher's Ashes Placed in Giant Prozac Pill Urn

In true unique Carrie Fisher form, the beloved actress's ashes were laid to rest in a giant Prozac pill-shaped urn on Thursday, January 5, during a private memorial service in Los Angeles.

Her brother, Todd Fisher, was seen leaving the service carrying the giant pill with the ashes inside.

Carrie, who shot to fame as Princess Leia in Star Wars, died on December 27 aged 60 after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles four days earlier.

The pair were both buried during a double funeral on Friday (6 January) at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills.

'We couldn't find anything appropriate. Carrie would like that. "Even the biggest stars were starstruck by her. Carrie would walk around barefoot with a can of Coca-Cola, making sure everyone was having a good time, saying the funniest things you've ever heard", the source said.

"My mother loves hummingbirds, and had hummingbirds in her yard", Todd told ABC News. Carrie Fisher herself referred to them in her autobiographical novel "The Best Awful" in 2004, in which she also mocked her many depressive sequences and clinic stays that followed.

The funeral came a day after the two actresses were eulogized by family and close friends at a private memorial service at their neighboring homes in Coldwater Canyon, about 10 miles west. The actress of Singing in the Rain did not wish to be cremated, unlike her daughter. In 2013, she told People Magazine that others should seek treatment. "It's about a very strong woman".

'We'll have a bigger service down the road for the public and all the family friends, but this was a private family and we're - it was fitting and it was handsome.

Todd Fisher said there will be a public memorial for his mom and sister a little later. They were very, very strong women right to the end'.

"I miss her so much", were her last words to her son, Todd. When WebMD asked her what it was like to be the poster child for bipolar disorder, she said, "Well, I am hoping to get the centerfold in Psychology Today".
