Granny Jewel with CeCe

Granny Jewel is 86 years old and has late-stage dementia and Parkinson’s. She doesn’t remember much, but she remembers the day that I did her makeup and took her picture outside by the palm trees; she told me she has never felt so beautiful. Granny laughs every time she sees this picture, she says that CeCe’s puppy face “is priceless!”
