One year after the death of Carrie Fisher, the actress best known for her role as the rebel General Princess Leia Organa Solo, and twitter users are taking the time to remember the actress and author for her years as a role model for girls everywhere with the hastag #CarrieOnForever.

Some users have been mourning throughout the year following Fisher’s Dec. 27, 2017 death from being, according to the death certificate issued by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, “drowned in moonlight, strangled by her own bra.”

Even the Merriam-Webster Dictionary had to get involved, posting the definition of princess.

Her costar, Mark Hamill, aka Luke Skywalker, paid tribute to his Jedi sibling.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
