The Family Guy Carrie Fisher Tribute Melted Our Cold Hearts

"I may have lost a boss, but heaven has gained a princess."

It has been two years since Carrie Fisher died unexpectedly at age 60, but as Family Guy proved, we're all still feeling the massive void Fisher left behind. In a touching tribute to the Star Wars leading lady and Family Guy guest star, Peter (Seth MacFarlane) gave a eulogy at his boss Angela's (voiced by Fisher) funeral.

Though it starts out in typical Family Guy fashion -- an incorrect definition of a word, non-sequitur, off-key theme song, non-sequitur -- at the very end of the eulogy Peter says, "I may have lost a boss, but heaven has gained a princess."

Through Peter, MacFarlane talks about what an inspiration Fisher was in his own life. "Fearless, spontaneous, honest about herself just as much as she was about the world around her. She had grace, courage and unmatched zest for life," says Peter.

"She may be gone, but her voice will live on in DVD and Hulu Plus and tiny droid-projected messages."

Fisher voiced Angela for 25 episodes of Family Guy since 2005 and will be seen onscreen again via previously shot footage in Star Wars Episode IX.
