    My maternal grandparents are divorced.

    My grandpa remarried, but my relatives lashed out at her, telling her 'she tore our family apart.' That effectively resulted in her shutting us out. I've never met my grandpa, and my mother hasn't seen him for at least a decade. My paternal grandfather has been in prison since...

    Or grandfathers they were

    Born Too Late

    I Never Knew He Existed

    Not until I was 14 years old. When I found out who my real father was, I also found out about him. And he was dying. At the time I didn't realise, but a few months after I'd first made contact I received a message saying that he'd passed away... just like that. I never met him...
