No, all my grandparents died a long time ago. My last grandma died in 1996.

Not since I was a kid. When I met my husband he still had two grandmas, a grandpa and a greatma. I was amazed. He's since lost all three.

Nope. I lost my dad's dad in 1993, my mom's mom in 1998, my dad's mom (my Granny ) in 2001, and my mom's dad in 2005. I was close with my dad's parents, but no so much with my mom's parents.

Since my family tends to start young, yes, I'm pretty sure they're all still kickin'. I have my maternal Beemaw & Peepaw in Florida and Mom's mom in Oklahoma. Not exactly sure where Dad's parents are but there's Grandma & Grandpa Becker and Grandma Maryann and Grandpa Somethingoranother. Dad doesn't really talk to his parents all that much.

Gene! Dad's dad is Gene!

My bio paternal family ... I have absolutely no idea.

I only have 1 grandmother left, and she's not doing so well. She never remarried after my Dads Father was killed in 1958 (He was in the Airforce). Although she had a really close 'friend' when I was small, Sam passed away before I turned 2. She must have really liked him because everytime she see's Matt she calls him Sam.

My Mom's parents were always my favorite. My Grandpa Cliff passed in 1997, and my Grandma Ruby (my favoritist of all) passed away July 06.

All of my grandparents have moved on. I lost three of the four in one year - Mom's dad in Jul 1989, Dad's mom in Dec 1989, and Dad's dad in Feb 1990. Mom's mom held out until Apr 1999 - she knew Joey was on his way, but couldn't wait for him.

My Grandfather on my mother's side is still living as is my Grandmother on my father's side.

I'd love to be the ideal mother but I'm too busy raising my kids.

No

My mom's parents passed when she was a kid, my dads mother passed when I was born and my grandpa passed when I was about 14 or so.
