Todd Fisher organized the event and when asked about it during a Variety interview he said, “The public is invited because that’s how my mother would want it, she was very connected to her fans and felt they were a part of her, so we’re opening it up to the public.”

The son and brother revealed heartbreaking and touching words with the audience, “When Carrie died, my mother decided to change her plans a bit. My mother always said to me, ‘I never want to go to my daughter’s funeral service. I would like to be buried with Carrie.’ I didn’t know she was going to leave us that very next day and when she looked at me to ask permission to leave, she said she wanted to be with Carrie, and she closed her eyes and went to sleep. It was a beautiful exit.”
