Todd keeps a legacy of both women alive through his memoir “My Girls” in which he tells what helped him cope with the tragic loss of his mother and sister.

In the book, Fisher recalls his last conversation with Carrie.

We were talking about traveling together and doing other things, and she was still a little angry at me because the party I had to sort of force down her throat, but my mom wanted it…



In his book, Todd described a special bond he shared with his late sibling.

The relationship between brother and sister, the bond, is so deep… I remember Carrie said 'We have to be OK with each other. It’s the foundation.'

Faith will help

Losing a mother and a sister in such a short period of time is devastating. But, of course, everybody has his/her own way to deal with a loss. Todd Fisher found comfort in faith.

Todd wrote in his book:

I’m a Christian. I happen to believe that we’ll all meet again… Carrie visits me in my dreams, and I appreciate that too… It was very heartbreaking, writing the book… But I had to do it. 



We hope Todd’s experience can help everyone who goes through the hard times or deals with a loss of their loved ones. Remember, there will always be a rainbow after heavy rains.
