My grandma was 81 when she passed away in 1995. The first president she could remember was Woodrow Wilson.
This reminds me of something else that makes me feel older: none of my grandparents was born in the 20th century. They were born between 1892 and 1899. My longest-living grandparent was my maternal grandmother, who lived from 1899 to 1990, passing away just before her 91st birthday. When I think of all she witnessed in her lifetime, from two world wars to the technological innovations and medical advances, my mind boggles.

Thank you, guys, for your condolences.
