For some of us out there, myself included, we do not have warm and fuzzies about our grandparents. One set of my grandparents passed when I was too little to remember them. They were wonderful and loving people, from what I'm told, and I hate that I did not have a chance to get to know them. On the other side, just a grandmother remained and she was not a great person. She suffered from a terrible alcohol and prescription pill addiction, which made her an abusively belligerent and paranoid woman - obviously not someone a child would want to be around, or the kind of person a parent wants their kids around.
