Actress Ruta Lee delivered a touching eulogy about Reynolds and her philanthropy.

Dancers from Debbie Reynold's dance studio performed a tribute to Singin' In The Rain - the film that catapulted Reynolds to fame aged just 19.

Three months after their back-to-back deaths, mother-and-daughter actresses Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher were honored Saturday at a poignant public ceremony in Los Angeles.

"Here's a chance where we can all get together like family and have an event like family", Todd said.

There were speeches of remembrance from Aykroyd - who was briefly engaged to Fisher in the 1970s before she Wednesday singer/songwriter Paul Simon - and Turner Classic Movies host Ben Mankiewicz.

Todd also shared plans for a permanent tribute to his mom and sister, and revealed that he is planning to include rooms from the pair's adjoining L.A. homes - Carrie's writing room and Reynolds' bedroom - in the museum.

TCM host Ben Mankiewicz also attended the memorial. She was helping me with a book.

At the end of the montage, a working R2D2 unit came on stage and mournfully beeped at a picture of Fisher and at an empty director's chair with Fisher's name on it. Everyone's favorite space robot "wept" until Todd Fisher knelt down to comfort him.

Under clear blue skies, hundreds of fans made the pilgrimage Saturday to Forest Lawn's Hall of Liberty in the Hollywood Hills to pay tribute to actress Carrie Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds. Equipped with smiles and punch lines, he explained to attendees that the public event "is a show and not a memorial, because my mother didn't like memorials and funerals".

"She closed her eyes and went to sleep".

In an earlier interview, Todd said that "The last lyric in the song, it's a lovely song, is 'I'm here to let you know". I have film of that and it will be in the memorial.' And when I was editing that, it ripped my heart out. It might be tougher even, you know... I knew Carrie for a short while.

Fisher and Reynolds suddenly died within a day of each other back in December. They would go down the hallway together singing "Puttin' on the Ritz", her life was touched with glamour, he said. "I'm going to start to cry - she really meant a lot to us". "But instead the next morning, we had a little further dialogue and she chose to leave the planet in front of my face two feet away".
