This morning, Leonardo DiCaprio is mourning the death of his grandmother, who passed away at 93 in her native Germany. Apparently Leo is close to heartbroken, which comes as no surprise, because they had always been very close.
As we all know, death is one of life's natural progressions, and for many people, losing a grandparents is their first experience with loss. The relationship one has with her grandparents can vary drastically from person to person. Some fear the elderly, while others completely relate. Some grew up with their grandparents acting as their parents, and other people barely know them at all. I've always been fascinated by my grandparents. I consider them a wealth of knowledge, and I could happily listen for hours to their stories about the good old days and how they met and fell in love. Do you, or did you, feel the same way about your grandparents? I'm curious, so tell me what they mean to you!
