“She is the kind of grandma that was and is modern,” said Flego. “She likes to joke, she is really kind and friendly, and recognizes beautiful stuff.

“She is not ashamed of her wrinkles and age. But she says, ‘Why wouldn’t I go to the nursing home ball with full makeup and look 30 years younger?’”
