Yes and No

My mother's father was perhaps the greatest man I've ever known. He was patient beyond belief, a mechanical and engineering genius (though severely underappreciated here in America where immigrants tend not to get a fair chance), a brilliant father and grandfather, and a gifted farmer. He died miserably in a home with dementia and anxiety disorders and it breaks my heart everytime I think about the years I have and will have to live without his guidance.

 

My father's father is a despicable nazi (literally) with preposterous standards. He's sexist, a lazy and absent father and grandfather and truly has very few redeeming characteristics. The fact that he is here to bother us and Pappy is gone reduces my faith in a diety down to grains of sand.
