today, as i left the funeral services, Jay–Z ‘s ‘forever young’ played softly. outside the church, the lyrics continued to play in my head. what exactly is forever young? is 9,172 days forever young? those were the days of paloma’s life. about a week ago, just a month after her 25th birthday, paloma de mazieres was killed in a boating accident. forever and ever, she will be forever young. she was love and loved. everyone who spoke at her service affirmed paloma’s zest for life. paloma lived to the fullest, she embraced life, and she seized every moment. she lived life. everyone repeated the unconditional love she gave to all who knew her, and her capacity to forgive anyone who hurt her. paloma was forever young, but wise beyond her years. i will be reminded, forever in my years, what was said about paloma. she has touched my life in a most peculiar way…the lyrics play on and she is forever young for thebestdressup now!
