The public memorial service for Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds has concluded, and once again social media has been flooded with touching tributes to the late, great mother-daughter duo. Amongst them was Mark Hamill, Fisher's co-star from the original Star Wars trilogy and a lifelong friend.

There's no doubt the pair were as close as real-life siblings, and Hamill's tributes to her following her untimely death were enough to bring a tear to any self-respecting fan's eye.

Now, Hamill's gone and triggered the waterworks yet again with another tribute, whilst revealing a surprisingly funny memory from his on-screen twin.

Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds may have be gone, but they're certainly not forgotten. Both women left their mark on not only the entertainment industry, but their friends and fans.

Hamill shared this moving tribute to the pair commemorating their close connection, and reminded fans that their memory would live on with their legacy:

"She'd Heckle My Funeral"

Hamill also revealed that Fisher had made quite the threatening promise to him before her passing. Apparently, she'd threatened to "heckle" his funeral if he died before she did.

Considering Fisher's wicked sense of humor, this threat is hardly surprising— after all, this is a woman who was buried in a Prozac-shaped urn!

By sharing this memory, Hamill reminded Fisher's fans that the date of her memorial service wasn't a day to grieve, but to laugh. Fellow Star Wars actor Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) definitely took this on board, sharing a poignant snap of him carrying the princess in his giant arms, with massive smiles across both their faces:

There's no doubt Fisher's fans are going to miss her infectious smile and wicked sense of humor; but thankfully, we'll always have those typical Carrie anecdotes to laugh about.

Do you think Carrie Fisher really would have heckled Mark Hamill's funeral?
