Billie Lourd took to Instagram to pay tribute to her mother, Carrie Fisher, on the second anniversary of her death.

The actress posted a video on Wednesday night of her performing the song "These Days" by Jackson Browne on the piano.

"It has been two years since my Momby's death and I still don't know what the 'right' thing to do on a death anniversary is (I'm sure a lot of you feel the same way about your loved ones)," she wrote in the caption that accompanies the video. "So I decided to do something a little vulnerable for me, but something we both loved to do together — sing."

Lourd explained that her grandfather gave Fisher the piano featured in the video. "This was one of her favorite songs. And as the song says, we must 'keep on moving,'" she continued in the post. "I've found that what keeps me moving is doing things that make me happy, working hard on the things that I'm passionate about and surrounding myself with people I love and making them smile."

"I hope this encourages anyone feeling a little low or lost to 'keep on moving.' As my Momby once said, 'take your broken heart and turn it into art' — whatever that art may be for you," she wrote. The post concluded with a red heart emoji.

Fisher died on Dec. 27, 2016, at the age of 60, just days after suffering from a medical emergency while on a flight from London to Los Angeles. Her mother, Debbie Reynolds, died one day later.

It has been two years since my Momby’s death and I still don’t know what the “right” thing to do on a death anniversary is (I’m sure a lot of you feel the same way about your loved ones). So I decided to do something a little vulnerable for me, but something we both loved to do together - sing. This is the piano her father gave her and this was one of her favorite songs. And as the song says, we must “keep on moving”. I’ve found that what keeps me moving is doing things that make me happy, working hard on the things that I’m passionate about and surrounding myself with people I love and making them smile. I hope this encourages anyone feeling a little low or lost to “keep on moving”. As my Momby once said, “take your broken heart and turn it into art” - whatever that art may be for you.
