by at .

Carrie Fisher was laid to rest on Friday afternoon.

As previously reported, the iconic actress shared the sad occasion of her funeral with Debbie Reynolds, Fisher's beloved and famous mother who incredibly passed away just a day after her daughter.

The Star Wars favorite died on December 27, from complications related to a heart attack; while Reynolds died on December 28, from complications related to a stroke.

The joint funeral was held in Los Angeles.

What no one knew headed into it, however, was how Fisher's family had chosen for Carrie spend all of eternity.

She was cremated... and her ashes were placed in a gigantic Prozac-pill urn. For real!

"It was a porcelain antique Prozac pill from the '50s that was one of Carrie's prized possessions," Todd, Fisher's brother, explained The Hollywood Reporter.

Leave it to Fisher to keep us cracking up, even in death.

The actress, of course, was very open throughout her adult life regarding her mental illness.

She suffered from anxiety and Bipolar Disorder and was never seen without her therapy dog, Gary, by her side.

Todd Fisher spoke to reporters moments after the funeral in Los Angeles yesterday, which took place one day after his sister’s private memorial.

He went into further depth at the time regarding the unusual urn selection.

"We couldn't find anything appropriate. Carrie would like that," he said of the choice, adding again of the antique pill box:

"It was her favorite thing, and so that's how you do it. And so they're together, and they will be together here and in heaven, and we're OK with that."

Fisher died at age 60 and Reynolds at age 84.

Todd also said that Carrie's daughter, Billie Lourd, as on board with the urn.

As for everyone else in the family?

"Everybody's as settled as we can be, and we're not going to go any further," he shared.

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

Continued Todd Fisher:

"We have so much of them that was left behind. All of my sister's words and all the movies, and all the things that they created. That's what we need to remember."

And just like Fisher's fans, who can sit back and at least watch her work at any time, Todd has ways he can remember his loved ones.

"They were both Molly Browns of sorts,” he said fondly, expounding:

“Molly Brown's a movie my mom made years ago and it's about a very strong woman. They were very, very strong women right to the end."

That's for sure.

We miss them.

But we know they are together and happy in heaven.
