The pair took to Twitter on Tuesday, December 27, to share their utter devastation over Carrie’s passing.
“Breaking my silence with a broken heart,” Joely, 49, wrote along with a photo of her and her older sister smiling and hugging. “The Unfathomable loss….the earth is off its axis today…how dare you take her away from us.”
Tricia, 48, simply wrote: “Heartbroken @carriefisher @MsJoelyFisher,” and included a picture of herself with Carrie.
The distraught siblings, who are the daughters of Carrie's father, Eddie, and his second wife, Connie Stevens, aren’t the only family members to pay tribute to the star.

”It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother, Carrie Fisher, passed away at 8:55 this morning," the family spokesman Simon Halls said in a statement to Us.

As previously reported, Carrie suffered a massive heart attack on board a flight from London to Los Angeles on Friday, December 23.
But according to TMZ, she actually suffered cardiac arrest, meaning her heart just stopped, on the plane. She was hospitalized and placed on a ventilator, but on Tuesday her heart stopped suddenly again and she died.
She was 60 years old when she passed away.
