In true unique Carrie Fisher form, the beloved actress’s ashes were laid to rest in a giant Prozac pill-shaped urn on Thursday, January 5, during a private memorial service in Los Angeles.

The following day, her iconic Hollywood star mother, Debbie Reynolds, was honored at a funeral service, where Fisher’s brother Todd explained the eccentric choice for his sister’s final resting place to reporters.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Fisher revealed that “Carrie’s favorite possession was a giant Prozac pill that she bought many years ago.”

“She loved it, and it was in her house, and Billie [Lourd] and I felt it was where she’d want to be,” he said, explaining, “We couldn’t find anything appropriate. Carrie would like that. It was her favorite thing, and so that’s how you do it.”

In a poignant way, the urn makes sense: The adored Star Wars icon, who passed away at the age of 60 on December 27 after suffering a heart attack, not only had a slick sense of humor, but was also a longtime mental health advocate who openly discussed her battles with addiction, bipolar disorder and depression in an attempt to strip the shame and stigma attached to such issues.

Rest in power, Carrie—and may the force be with you.
