He was in the hospital recovering from a toe amputation due to his diabetes. His grandson could not have gone to the prom without his grandfather around.

Leon goes to the elderly man and embraces him. Following the warm hug, he kisses his grandfather’s forehead.


Everyone in the room is overcome with emotions even as Leone and Miranda continue to shed tears of joy and hug each other. Fearing she would ruin her makeup, Leon’s date tries to hold back her tears.

The teenager's mother said, "When we opened the door and he saw Felipe, it was priceless."

His mother also appears teary-eyed witnessing the bond between the grandfather and the grandson. The two will undoubtedly remember the moment for a long time to come.
