Hollywood legends and famed mother-daughter pair Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, who died this week just one day apart, will have a joint funeral and be buried together, Reynolds' son Todd Fisher said on Friday, according to the Associated Press.

Fisher, 60, died on Tuesday, several days after having a medical emergency while on a plane from London to Los Angeles. Her mother, actress Debbie Reynolds, 84, died one day later after a stroke.

"She said, 'I want to be with Carrie,'" Todd Fisher, told the AP, speaking about his mother's death. "And then she was gone."

According to Fisher, the two will have a private, joint funeral and will be buried together at Forest Lawn-Hollywood Hills — alongside a number of other Hollywood icons who are interred there, including Lucille Ball, Liberace, Florence Henderson and Bette Davis.

Reynolds and Fisher were both known for iconic roles in film and television, as well as their outspoken personalities and personal activism.
