Lee and Julissa, there are no words that can express how truly sorry I am for the loss of your sweet girl. My memory of Paloma is at the last TM cookout she was singing "Born in The USA" very loud over and over. At Gavin's house. And seeing her happy as Steve drove the kids in his Hummer. This made her happy! She will be missed.
