In his emotional Instagram tribute to his grandmother earlier this month, Flagg wrote that "the Queen has passed" before reflecting on her enduring legacy, including a long history of philanthropy.
“Margie was not only an incredible person but also a true role model,” he wrote, noting that his grandmother and her late husband Herman Platt, who died in 2005, both helped found and build Mount Sinai Memorial Park, a Jewish mortuary and funeral home, where she was laid to rest. “They were truly respected as one of the founding Jewish families of Los Angeles.”
Flagg went on to praise his grandmother’s sophistication and taste, which he says played a huge role in making him the man he is today.
“There is no question where I got my sense of style from,” the real estate agent wrote. “My grandmother was the only person I ever knew who would hold a party for 100 people on one evening followed by another party for a different group of 100 people the next night, which she called the ‘B’ night. Everyone knew that Friday was the ‘A’ list and Saturday was the ‘B’ list, but even so, everyone still felt lucky to be invited.”
“She truly was the epitome of THE social butterfly. This woman lived life more than anyone else I ever met,” he added, before reflecting on how the pair used to show their affection for one another: “Whenever I told my grandmother I loved her, she would respond with ‘I adore you darlingggg, and how much do you love me?' And I would say ‘all in the world.’”
“Sleep tight madam and have a fun night in heaven with grandpa,” Flagg wrote.
