  • Lucky for me, they are only 65 and 68. I hope they last to be 104! :)

  • All my grandparents, except my paternal grandmother, were gone long before I was ever on the map.

    She died when I was about 13.

  • Three are dead, and my grandmother who is still living is 87. And in pretty rough shape, unfortunately.

  • My Grandma Dot is 83 I think...and my Grandpa is a little older...not sure. My Granny May is 91. I never met my other Grandpa. He passed away from TB when my mom was very young.

  • Mine are all gone, but my husband has 3 living grandparents ranging from late 70's to late 80's.

  • My maternal grandma is turning 93 next month. She has Alzheimers and is in a nursing home. Her husband died of lung cancer in his 50's. My dad's parents have been gone for 30+ years, and I think they both lived into their 70's.

  • I am 35.... IF my parents were alive they would be 67 and 74. My grandparents IF they were alive would be in their 90's.

    Every one in my family seems to kick off in their 70's or early 80's at the latest. Which means I probably shouldn't count on having more than 35 years or so left myself.

  • Oh my goodness!

    Well, my paternal grandma is going to be 82 this year. My paternal grandpa is 81.
    My maternal grandma is about 72, I'm not quite sure. My maternal grandpa is about 71.
    My maternal grandma's mom is about 86 (she had kids very young). My maternal grandpa's mom is about 95.

    I am *so* incredibly lucky to be 20 years old and still have all four of my grandparents and two great grandmas. I'm the only person I know like this.
