 yes.  I also still have one great grandparent living.  She hasnt met my kids because she lives half way across the country, but is aware of them.  Ds met my great grandpa, we have pictures of all five generations together, but he passed on when ds was 2 1/2. 

DS took a trip with my dad last wek to arzona to visit my grandparents actually.  My moms mom lives just up the street from us, as does dh's maternal grandmother.

My maternal grandparents did. My paternal did not. My grandfather died before I was born and my grandmother when I was 7. They are all gone now.

My dads parents are still alive. My dads grandparents, my great grandparents were still alive when my daughter was born. My great grandmother died last month and my daughter turned three this month. I am just glad she got to meet my daughter before she died.

Yes.  My one grandfather passed away when my oldest was 5, which was 4 years before I had my second.  All the rest of my grandparents are alive and got to see ME become a grandparent!  

My mom parents have 5 children, 9 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great-grandchildren

My dad's mom has two children, two grandchildren, 5 great-grandkids and 4 great-great-grandchildren.

Both of my maternal grandparents are still alive. My paternal grandfather passed away when I was almost 18 years ago.

My paternal grandmother was a live when both of them were born, but because of her advanced Alzheimer's disease, she didn't know who they were.
