The year has ended in true tragedy: taking the lives of one of Hollywood's most legendary mother-daughter teams.
To add to the heartbreaking news, Debbie's son Todd reportedly told TMZ his mother's last words were,"I miss her so much, I want to be with Carrie."
Carrie died earlier this week at the age of 60 after suffering a heart attack.
Reports state Debbie suffered a stroke while at Carrie's home in Beverly Hills and was subsequently rushed to hospital where she passed away.
Ellen Degeneres was one of the first famous fans to express her sympathy to Debbie and Carrie's family.

William Shatner has also been closely following the news, stating Debbie was one of "the last of Hollywood royalty."
Debbie Reynolds was one of the last of Hollywood Royalty. It breaks my heart that she is gone. I'd hoped that my grieving was done for 2016.— William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) December 29, 2016
Debbie will be remembered for her brilliant contributions to the big and small screen, most notably in the musical Singin' in the Rain.
