Patsit I really count on my living relatives and my memories to help my children remember or learn about my Grandfather and others.

I think people, like my uncle, live on in my father and my cousins (uncles kids) and my children have met my cousins and been able to hear about those people.

My grandfather (my children never met him) painted and wrote. I have his stories and one of his pictures. I share those things with my children and count on my father (his son) to talk about him to my children.

Does your husband talk about his father? Would he be willing to share those stories with your children?

My father-in-law passed away 3 years ago this month

My daughter was 8 and my son was 3. My newest addition was born 1 year and 1 day after his PopPop passed away.

I liked him. I even loved him at times. We weren't overly close but we had a fondness for each other.

What makes me sad is that my kids don't really remember him. I try to bring him up or show pictures of him because I dont' want my kids to grow up without knowing who he was.

My Mother-In-Law doesn't have much of a relationship with us anymore. Since her husband passed away she went from caring about us and the kids to mostly focusing on herself.

It's strange, I feel like my kids have lost both their grandparents with this. We're very close to my family but still, I want my kids to know my husbands family.

How can I make sure my kids still are aware of their PopPop and who he was?
