Are your grandparents alive?

All 4 of my grandparents are alive, even one great-granparent at the age of 91. He was a soldier in WWII, but he actually didn't do anything but waiting just in case the Germans attacked because he was a Turkish soldier.

I'm 14. I used to wish they died so I could inherit their money, but grandpa (paternal) got heart disease and it's horrible to see how he's suffering.

Updates:
The poor soul who blocked me:

Uhm, I never said they were going me a big chunk of money and say "Do what you want with this". I'm saying that if the money is theirs, it's mine. I ask for money, they give me. We inherit a lot of money, they save some for my education later on. Also, you're horribly American-centric. You don't get any rights at 21 here, it's at 18.

  • They were all dead before I was born. So I never had any grand parents. My grandfather on my dad's side was born in 1868 so he'd be 147 if he were still alive. I'm not sure of the dates of the others, but I think they were all born between 1870-1895.

    • Holy shit. Where were they from?

    • Both on my Dad's side were from England. They met and were married there. They moved to Canada in the early 1900s. Then to the US shortly after that, I think around 1908-1910.

      Both on my Mom's side were born in the US. They are also of English ancestry.

      My father was in WW2 but didn't fight. I had a first cousin who fought in the Pacific island campaigns. He was in some of the really nasty first wave island landings. I have no idea how he survived with the stuff he was involved in. Just luck I guess.

    • Wow, just like Lena! That's so exciting

  • I only have my paternal grandma, she's like 82 and I rarely ever see her, but I almost feel like she doesn't even recognize me as her granddaughter anyway, unlike with my brother.

    Oh please trust me when I tell you, no amount of money inherited makes up for not having your grandparents, it's horrible to know you don't have them to simply hug or ask questions to. My maternal grandma's death has been the hardest for me so far since it was the most recent one and I knew her the most because I was a bit older. She was a beautiful woman inside and out and I really miss her and regret not spending enough time with her. I wish I could've learned more about her life through her and that she could've stayed for a bit longer, to see me graduate high school and just know how I'm doing and stuff.
    There's this song that reminds me of her and every single time I hear it I burst out crying because it reminds me of her for some reason, but it's the only time when I allow myself to cry because then it'd get pretty bad, I think. So yeah, this is the song which probably nobody even cares about:

    Sorry for the paragraph, but I've been really sensible and thinking about this today so yeah, just needed to vent, ig.

  • Hmmm... Yes my Dad's parents are alive. My mother's parents are alive, and my step dads parents are alive (I've known them since I was 3). I don't technically have a stepmom, but the lady my dad has been with for the past 10 years lost her parents to a car accident when she was much younger.

  • The money will be inherited through their own kids so your mother or father. That's a really sweet attitude.

    • What does it take to show you I regret it now? Don't be sarcastic to me.

      (By the way, even I still thought that way, I live with my parents. They buy stuff for me. The money is ours as a family.)

    • They are not going to give a 14 year old the inheritance. Unless you come from A Blair Worldorf family you will more likely get a big sum of inheritance after college or 21.

  • Most of my grandparents are alive.
    However I lost my grandfather (Very beloved and close with him) 15/06-15
    He died of terminal cancer, so I saw how the cancer drained his poor soul.
    I miss him very much.
