Sorry to hear that Les. I had 4 great-grandparents still living when I was born, lost the last one when I was 24. Got a picture of my daughter sitting on her knee. That's something a lot of people never got to enjoy.

Very sorry. Probably the biggest influence in my life was my Grandmother. They are treasures.

I'm sorry to hear that Les. Who lost a grandmother, you or your wife?

Les    Posted 03-02-2003 at 12:24:20       [Reply]  [No Email]
Neither. My daughter in law's grandmother (her father's mother) died.
We haven't had grandparents alive for many years. I think my mother's mother was the last one and she died in '76. If my father's father was alive, he would be 127 as he was born December 10, 1875.

It is highly unusual but my sons kids have one great great grandmother still left. My grandmother is still doing well and lives mostly on her own at 97. Naturally she no longer drives and someone usually my mother or one of my aunts goes by the house a couple of hours each day to visit and help out.
My grand kids just think of her as a weak wrinkely old lady that sits and smiles a lot. but I remember a strong classy lady. Grandma could fit in at any level of society with ease but I remember once as a child that a couple of the Herfords got themselves mired in mud/quicksand and her getting gramps old willy's jeep and winching them out on her own. What a century she has seen gone from horse and mule power to seeing the space shuttles become almost a non event,she went form cooking with wood to microwaves lived through two world wars. I wonder if there ever will be another generation to experience so much change.

There is no greater thrill to me than sitting down and talking to one of our older folks about their experiences. I used to sit and listen to my 98 year old neighbor reminisce. She would close her eyes and lean her head back against the head rest of her chair and go back to being a child and so on. She would talk til she fell asleep and then I would quietly leave. I miss those sessions, they were good for both of us I think. She's been gone three or four years now.
