Zach Viramontes carefully picked through a pile of buttons next to June Wasko at the Belmont Village Senior Living in Rancho Palos Verdes.
“I found another bedazzled one for you,” the 17-year-old said. “Do you want that one?”
The elderly woman nodded thoughtfully, so Viramontes helped her carefully paint some glue onto the sparkly button and stick it on a cardboard tree.
