      I remember 3 of my 4 grandparents and the roles each played in shaping my starter identity. One grandmother lived forever and had a hand in forming my adult identity as well. I think grandparents give us a bit more latitude than parents and that can provide the ingredients for something truer to put down roots and grow. Thanks cfk for reminding me.
