Do you have grandparents?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
My dad's mom died before I was born and so did my mom's dad. So I have a Grandma who I live with and a Grandpa who got married to this weird fat woman...my family doesn't talk to them anymore.

Are your grandparents still alive?

    I've still got two grandmothers.
    My dad's dad died in 1993 and my mam's dad died in 2001.

    I have a grandma whose alive and lives 100 metres from my home. I have another grandma who had a stroke and can't really talk anymore, and I have a grandad who is in Spain who I've never seen once. C'est la vie!

    I've got two Grandparents left, both my nan's. My Mum's dad died of stomach cancer when i was about 7, and we lost my Dad's dad last year after a brain haemorage. I loved them loads and miss them. I'm very glad i got to know them both, my brother was only two when my Mum's dad died and doesn't remember him at all.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    My mum's parents are still alive and my dad's mum are still alive.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I have 2 grandmas (one of which I haven't seen for years) and one grandad - maybe 2, but I don't know if my mum's biological dad is still alive.

    One, my dad's mum. Both on my mums side died, my dad's dad did too. :(

    I miss them! It happens to us all one day, one way, or another. But we still feel grief.

    I have two grandma's. Both my grandpa's died before I was born.

    My moms mom, I see her alot. She lives inbetween me and my parents so I visit every time I go home. She is very young at heart.

    My dads mom, It was just her 87th birthday. I love her to bits. I very rarely see her. She's sick. She's very bad artrithus and had her second heart attack not too long ago. I wish I could see her more.

    Tomorrow is a mystery
    But today is a gift
    That’s why it’s call the present
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Yep, my grandparents are alive on both sides of my family.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Never knew my dad's side.

    My Grandpa (we called him Granda) on my Mam's side I sort of remember getting me into trouble once, but he died when i was about 6.

    My Granny I was really close to, died when I was 16.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    One left, my mum's mum.

    At one point I had a full set, and great-grandparents, but alas time takes its toll.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I've only got one left, my Dads dad.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Only my dad's mum. She's 82 and as cool as they come :cool:

    Mum's dad died when she was 16, and her mum 7 years ago. My dad's dad died just about 2 years ago.

    I had a great-grandma (dad's mum's mum) til I was 3 too :D


    It's a horrible fact of life though, when you get to a certain age, no matter how healthy your grandparents are, they just start to die. :/

    One Grandad died before i was born, one was i was 11, one Granny died there 2 months ago and one is still alive, she just turned 91.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    both my grandma's are alive, and one of my grandads, my dads dad died (he doesnt deserve the title grandad... anyways..) and my great grandma is still alive
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
