Although I can relate to "Amy" Columbia's aritcle of "An Unhealthy Inheritance" of not knowing my grandparents, but not so much on the alcohol. I have never heard stories of my grandparents either. All of my grandparents have passed away before I was born except for my grandfather. My Grandfather was in the army during the Vietnam War and left my grandmother the day my mother was born. Even though I have a small piece of this fact, I don't even know his name.
