I never knew my grandparents either. Only one surviving died when I was very small. Wonder sometimes, what it would have been like. Then again, when I was a child situations we had to deal with were quite tough; just hoping things would be okay on a day-to-day basis pre-occupied me too much to reflect on grandparents at the time.

I am sorry for those that grew up without grandparents.<br />

Both my grandfathers were important to me as a child. My grandmothers also but because I saw more of them the time spent with my grandfathers seemed special.<br />

krysta182, you may be able to learn some things about your grandparents from family history and some of the genealogy sites. It's not the same as knowing them however you may be able to trace your heritage.

Both my grandfathers died before I was born and one of my grandmothers died when I was quite young. I only had one grandmother that I got to know and love. I Too wonder what I might have missed out on. Now I'm 50 and old enough to be a grandmother myself.
