I’ll be quite honest and say right off the bat that I don’t even know how to write the following words. It saddens me beyond measure to report that Carrie Fisher, Princess Leia, has passed away.

Star Wars has been such a huge part of my life and all of us here at DFAT for so long that its in the very fiber of our beings. A couple days ago she had a heart attack but was reported to be in stable condition; today it seems that she has become one with the Force and was taken from this world.

Fisher was not only a fantastic actress and best known for her role in the Star Wars franchise, but she’s also gone on to be an amazing comedian and author. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her friends and family and even though she’s now in a galaxy far, far, away; we will forever remember her impact on our geeky universe.
