If you could share a meal with any 2 individuals, living or dead, who would you choose and why? She said, “I’d choose my paternal grandparents, who both died when my father was an adolescent; I’d choose them as I remember stories my father shared with me about them when I was young and I always felt a sense of loss at not ever having a chance to know them. It’s made me committed to make sure my own children share quality time with their grandparents!”
