The sisters say they were at Fishers bedside in the hospital after her heart attack. "I sat with Debbie and she said to me that she was praying for more time. I knew that if Carrie wasn't going to survive this that Debbie would not," said Joely.
A private joint memorial is scheduled for Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds on Thursday in Los Angeles.
