    Amazing people! My Grandpa was always trying to make us laugh! My Nana was sweet and was an amazing cook. She even made a bowl of cereal taste better than when we poured it ourselves. I don't know how she did that!

    Pretty old, in fact I can only remember the paternal grandmother as being alive. My maternal grandpa died from TBA at 27, his wife joined him 4 years later in the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918? My paternal Granddad died young in a oilfield accident.

    My grandfather was a polyglot engineer and university professor in Estonia. My grandmother was a poetry writing artist who could sing songs from an entire opera she only heard once before. They were very reserved but direct people in many ways, though my grandmother was emotional at times. Neither of them ever hugged us. They just didn't do physical contact. They showed their love in other ways. I'm in my 50s, so they've both been gone for over ten years...

    I only saw my paternal grandfather twice and my paternal grandmother once. My maternal grandparents hated each other. When we would to go their home we were never allowed to sit on the furniture or touch anything at all. So, they were "great" grandparents...

    according to my Uncles He was a kind soul and a Gentle heard thou he never went to school he was very educated my Grandfather never stuck his kids EVER his form of discipline was make them Read Books any kind of book espally Dictionaries etc


    my mothers Father was a World war 2 hero he was on the The Indianapolis which was sunk by the japanese


    The USS Indianapolis carried the trigger and radioactive core of the atomic bomb later dropped on Hiroshima (the Little Boy device). The Indy is also well known for the circumstances of its sinking, on the return voyage from dropping off the bomb components. The Indianapolis was torpedoed on 29 July, and sank quickly with the second greatest overall loss of life for any single US Navy ship sinking -- approximately 800 men in total.

    The Indianapolis disaster is also known for the huge number of shark related deaths as a large compliment of the crew remained alfoat in excellent survival conditions for about 3 days. It turns out that the Indianpolis' cargo had been so secret, there was no record conveyed to its destination, and thus the ship was not reported as overdue, and no rescue was started until the remaining crew were spotted on August 2 by a passing patrol plane. Shark deaths were roughly 500 souls.

    My grandpa lived with us and watched over the kids while my parents worked the farm. He taught me to help too at an early age, feeding the chickens and ducks at age 4. He had a beautiful voice and sang songs from his homeland, Switzerland. He was a good, kind man. I don't remember the grandmas or other grandpa from Germany.

    I lived most of my childhood with my maternal grandparents, and they were the best. Grandpa was a railroad detective, and he spent most of his spare time making and fixing things in his workshop for my brother and me (crystal sets, a car made from a lawn mower, etc.) Grandma had a huge garden and was the best cook in the world. I still miss them every day.
