Carrie Fisher dies at 60, leaves a legacy of humanity

Monumental Post

We are very sad to hear of the death of Carrie Fisher, 60, who died earlier today after suffering a massive heart attack on a flight to Los Angeles on Friday.

Fisher also has the rare distinction of being one of the few Americans to have appeared on a US stamp while she was still alive. In 2007, the US Postal Service issued a set of 20 Star Wars stamps. One of the stamps depicted Fisher in the role of Princess Leia, giving the android R2D2 the blueprints for the Death Star.

Fisher also appeared on a Royal Mail stamp in the United Kingdom last year, as part of the build up to “The Force Awakens”.
