Carrie Fisher and Sean Ono Lennon were actually good friends. After her passing, he posted several heartfelt photos on Instagram remembering his friend.
I can honestly say that Carrie was one of the best and closest friends I've ever had in my life. She was the smartest, funniest, kindest, and most generous person I have ever known. My heart is completely and permanently broken. This is the kind of loss that you never recover from. I know because I still miss my dad every single day. Carrie, I love you so much. I can't imagine living my life without you there to fix it. You meant more to me than just friend or family, I feel that you were part of me, and you always will be. I can never thank you enough for all those magical evenings. Thank you Debbie and Billie for sharing your prodigal princess with me. My thoughts are with you now and forever. R.I.P. Carrie Fisher.
Last night @rufuswainwright sent me this pic of Carrie and I at his and Jorn's wedding (thanks my brother). I hope you guys can see what I see, there's a closeness between us that I can't describe in words but it's all in this picture. Needless to say I burst into tears upon seeing this photo. I have some more pics of Carrie I took from that time I'm going to post soon. Once again sending love and light and strength to Billie and Debbie and Todd. And to Carrie, I hope you and David and George Martin and Prince and Leonard and the others lost this year are having the best party ever, and I hope my dad greeted you at the door. Love, Sean
Sean has now released a song called "Bird Song" which he had co-wrote with Carrie. On Soundcloud he explained, "Carrie and I used to stay up until dawn chatting and pontificating about life. They were the best moments. Anyway...we wrote a song about staying up too late and hearing the birds sing.
He recorded the song with Willow Smith.
