As the world learned of actress Carrie Fisher’s tragic death, tributes poured in from fellow thespians, fans and friends.

One of those tributes came from Fisher’s sister, actress Joely Fisher, the daughter of Eddie Fisher and Connie Stevens.

“Breaking my silence with a broken heart,” Fisher wrote on Twitter along with a broken heart emoji. “The Unfathomable loss…the earth is off its axis today…how dare you take her away from us.”

Throughout the rest of the evening, Fisher retweeted several tributes to her sister, and later posted a photo of their family.

“I am the tallest in this tribe (Connie and Eddie and Tricia not pictured) Still always tallest,” Fisher wrote.

Carrie Fisher died Tuesday at age 60. She had been hospitalized late Friday after suffering cardiac arrest on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
