Did/do you have a good relationship with one or both sets of your grandparents?

Nope... I had good relationships with my grandmas, but I felt pretty distant from both of my grandpas. I didn’t really feel comfortable being alone with either of them when they were alive.

My maternal grandma is my only grandparent that’s still alive, well, and my biological grandpa on my moms side is alive as well, but he abused my grandma, and I’ve never met him, so he doesn’t count. And I was really close to my dad’s mom. She was my grandma and best friend. I really miss her :(

Yes. I had a very close relationship with one of my grandmas. I miss her.

Yes, however brief the relationship was.

I don't know how to answer this. Both grandmothers were dead when I was born.

I adored my grandparents. My grandma was my mother figure.

Oh, yes. Although he was out golfing nearly everyday when we visited him, and was only here for a weekend when he came to us, I have great memories. We'd always catch lizards and frogs at his house in Hawai'i. I remember when he cut my hair and gave me a bald spot. I'll never forget that.

I only knew my dad’s mother, and she was a terrific woman.

I put no because all my grandparents have been dead for over 30 years.

I never met one set of grandparents. My grandfather was dead by the time I was 6. My grandmother died when I was 18.

My mother’s parents live/d in the Philippines so I didn’t see them often. My dad’s parents died before I was 10. I had a good relationship with my grandmother for that age but my grandfather had Alzheimer’s so I never really knew him.

My grandparents on my dad's side are from the Philippines, too!
