“Not really, I just know that she always had red lipstick and she had these lovely sunglasses. She used to do yoga, and she was a healthy person. She loved Paris and history and culture which just makes me feel a lot of FOMO (fear of missing out) because I think I would have really enjoyed and appreciated growing up with somebody like that. Also, it would have given my mom a lot more support because she has done it all alone. That’s all I really feel.”
