    my mom side, I really respect my grandad he was top governer of long Lartin prison. No body escaped while my grandad was in charge .he was govener 4 . he retried at 55because of pension he took home 2000 English pounds a month as a pension . He traveled world and lived good life . But he died last year cancer. His wife my nan died at 47 from cancer .
    My grandad lived a wild life for 20 years after my nan died. and the whole family fell out.
    He remarried family fell out. And most of family resented him. It was only me my sister and mum who went to funeral.
    What I'm saying is your grandparents love them . I regret not spending more time with them.
    My dad side I lost my nan last year.
    They are different breed. Miss them

    Father -
    Grandad was a lawyer and later a judge. Grandmother was a house wife. They were both very formal and we never became close. I don't know a lot about them.

    Mother -
    Farmers. Immigrant mentality. Tough love but very warm. I never met my grandad but I feel like I do, the stories I heard about him.. he seemed like a great guy. My grandma was very special and I miss her a lot. She had a great sense of humor, witty and legit funny. She had a very tough life but maintained an optimistic approach to everything. She was very inspiring. Great woman!

    Yikes. I actually expected the reverse mother/dad parents based on what you wrote previously about your dad.

    It's a shame. Reading posts . I only had close relationships with dads side. Mums side the governer only last few years and wish had more years previous. Nan dieing at 47 I was only 8 and grandad went of rails
    But dads side always close both nan and grandad
