Debbie Reynolds, known for her musical and dance talents as well as peak-Golden-Age-of-Hollywood films like Singin' in the Rain, passed away at the age of 84 on Wednesday, 28 December, just a day after her daughter Carrie Fisher died of complications from a heart attack.

Debbie's son Todd confirmed the news, and told NBC News: "She's gone to be with Carrie. She loved taking care of her and now she's gone to be with her." Debbie reportedly suffered a stroke that resulted in her being rushed to a Los Angeles hospital where her condition was said to be "fair to serious."

The year couldn't get more heartbreaking.
