"She is a one-of-a-kind, that girl," said Julia. "We were Facetiming actually right before they went out. And she was lying on the bed, and I said, 'What time is it? What are you guys doing?'

"She goes, 'Oh, Dad's, you know, just putting his tie on. We're getting ready to go.' And I said, 'Oh, are you ready?' 'Yeah.' Like, she didn't really look ready to me, you know, ponytail? And I was, like, 'Hmm, little eyeliner?'
