In the midst of mourning the loss of her mother, Carrie Fisher, and grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, Billie Lourd has shared her thoughts for the first time following both of their tragic deaths.

"Receiving all of your prayers and kind words over the past week has given me strength during a time I thought strength could not exist," Lourd wrote on Instagram Monday. "There are no words to express how much I will miss my Abadaba and my one and only Momby. Your love and support means the world to me."

The Star Wars star passed away Dec. 27 at the age of 60 after suffering cardiac arrest during an 11-hour flight from London to Los Angeles. Reynolds, 84, died one day later from a stroke.
