When I was a young man, Carrie Fisher was the most beautiful creature I had ever seen. She turned out to be witty and bright as well.

And in a statement to Time, Tina Fey said, "Carrie Fisher meant a lot to me. Like many women, Princess Leia occupies about sixty percent of my brain at any given time. But Carrie's honest writing and her razor-sharp wit were an even greater gift. I feel so lucky that I got to meet her. I'm very sad she is gone."

Even Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed his thoughts on Fisher's death.

We’ll never forget you, Carrie. May the Force be with you always.

And Modern Family star Sarah Hyland seemed to sum up what was on everyone's mind.

I'm officially joining the bandwagon of how 2016 can go fuck itself. Don't let the door hit ya on the way out.
