Hollywood favorite Debbie Reynolds and her equally iconic daughter Carrie Fisher may have a joint funeral service, after passing away within one day of each other.

Debbie's son and Carrie's brother Todd Fisher has said that a shared memorial service would be the most "appropriate" thing to do, given the closeness of their relationship.

"It's what we want to do, but we're still working on the mechanics," Todd told New York Daily News. "We like the idea, if it's at all possible. I think it's appropriate."

As the world continues to pay tribute to both Debbie and Carrie, Todd shared a poignant sketch of the two on Twitter recently, saying he will "miss them both so much".

"This is a beautiful love story to witness in my 58 years. I miss them both so much," he wrote. "Love is everlasting."

When Star Wars legend Carrie died earlier this week, her mother Debbie reached out to fans on Facebook, saying: "Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter.

"I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop."

When news of Debbie's death broke following her hospitalization from a suspected stroke, her son Todd simply said: "She wanted to be with Carrie."
