These last 24 hours have been rough for Star Wars fans and cinema fans in general.

Yesterday, we lost the ultimate princess, Carrie Fisher. Fisher, of course played Princess Leia in all the Star Wars films, and was beloved by anyone who ever came in contact with her.

She suffered a massive heart attack last Friday while flying from London to Los Angeles, and passed away Tuesday after trying to battle back while in critical care in Los Angeles.

Her impact around the world was easy to see and on full display yesterday as celebrities and fans joined in mourning the iconic actress's death. Even here in the Ark-La-Tex, condolences were shared non stop as it seems no one could quite cope with her untimely passing.

I must say, something brought a bittersweet smile to my face as I ventured into Bossier City this morning. Just off I-20 eastbound at the Old Minden road exit sits a tribute to Carrie that warmed my heart.

Kudos to Bossier City and whoever made it possible for this billboard to go up in such a timely manner.
