Carrie Fisher's brother knew how the Star Wars star wanted to be laid to rest. 

Todd Fisher spoke to reporters moments after Debbie Reynolds' funeral in Los Angeles, one day after his sister's private memorial, where he explained the choice of urn that was selected to hold Carrie's ashes.

Todd also gave an update on how the family is holding up during this difficult time.
