    My grandmothers & grandfathers all passed in the 70's too. I miss them alot, but what I miss most is that my children and husband didn't get to know them. So many of the kids mannerisms and their sense's of humor remind me of my grandfather. It makes me hope we will all be together some day.

    I can't wait to be a grandma too. My kids are 21 and 25 so hopefully it won't be tooooo long.

    Have a good day

    I missed out on the whole grandparent thing because I was a baby when both my grandfathers died. My paternal grandma died years before I was born and the only remaining grandma really just didn't know who I was! Everytime we saw her we would have to explain to her because she couldn't rememher!

    Now that I have a grand daughter I can appreciate what I missed! I love being a grandma! I hope I have many more grandkids to come!
