If you can believe it, it’s been a full year since we all received the terrible news that actress Carrie Fisher had passed away. On a flight back to Los Angeles from London, Fisher had reportedly stopped breathing, and she was taken to UCLA as soon as the plane landed. After four days of hospitalization, she died at age 60. The day was December 27, 2016.

On this anniversary of her passing, Star Wars: The Last Jedi co-star Mark Hamill took to Instagram to pay a tribute to her with three choice images. The first image is of the pair around the age they first became famous, the second of one of their last photoshoots during the production of The Last Jedi, and the third is of her in a Virgin Mary-type painting with her dog Gary, and her flipping off the audience in her trademark snarky style.

Hollywood indeed lost a legend that day, and with Star Wars: The Last Jedi having just come out, the loss of her has been a bit amplified in nature. As Mark Hamill stated in his post, no one ever truly dies, and the fact that she feels just as relevant now as she did last year or two years back is evidence of that.

Her legacy will continue on in the franchise that made her famous, as well as in the work she’s done and the lives she touched.
