If you were a kid in the 90’s there was one thing that you loved, Disney channel original movies. There are a few that I remember like ‘Brink’ and ‘The Color Of Friendship’ but there is one that seemed to outshine them all. ‘Halloweentown’ was one of the best Disney channel original movies and I think most people would agree.
The movie starred Kimberly J Brown who was in many Disney Channel original movies, and the legendary Debbie Reynolds. Debbie played the grandmother who loved magic and all things Halloween.
Today, Debbie took to Facebook to write an emotional tribute to her on screen grandmother.
What do you say about a woman who had such an impact on your life both professionally and personally?
Debbie lived her life like all of us should, to the fullest. She was bold, funny, and had the biggest heart.
Her sparkly smile warmed every room she was in, and her jokes about her amazing career and life would make your stomach hurt with laughter.
Making people happy through her performing was her favorite thing to do, and she showed me at a young age what a gift it is to be able to do that for people. She was so talented and wise, which easily could have gone to her head, but instead she went out of her way to help others shine as brightly as they could. She’d try to move huge ladders on set just to help the crew, and looked out for every actor no matter the size their role. Her humility, grace, and care for others inspired me so much as a teen and is something that will always stay with me.
“Being normal is vastly overrated” is a quote from “Halloweentown,” and how fitting it is that her character spoke it. Her generosity, talent, and loving spirit made her anything but normal. Thanks for the magic, Debbie. Rest in peace. (credit)

Debbie Reynolds, thank you for all you did to entertain us.
