Billie Lourd shared another musical tribute to her late mother Carrie Fisher on the third anniversary of her death, this time with a cover of John Prine’s “Angel From Montgomery.”

Along with the cover, shared on Instagram on Friday, Lourd posted a quote about loss from author Anne Lamott: “You will lose someone you can’t live without and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly–that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”

Lourd, who also lost her grandmother, actress Debbie Reynolds, on this day in 2016, has often turned to music as a form of tribute. She’s previously shared covers of Tom Petty’s “American Girl” and Glen Campbell’s “These Days.”

On Christmas Day, she posted a photo of herself as a baby with Fisher and Reynolds, wishing her followers a happy holidays and saying, “It’s okay if everything ain’t all merry and bright. It can be a mix of all of it. And it’s all okay. Feel all the feelings – the good and the not so good.”

“Be kind and patient with yourself,” she wrote. “Don’t grieve in silence. You’re not alone.”

Fisher died Dec. 27, 2016, at 60 after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles. She recently made her final on-screen appearance, alongside her daughter, in director J.J. Abrams’ “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” Reynolds died a day later after suffering a severe stroke.
