Definitely my Granny – she was very ill for a year and passed away in December. I wish so badly she was healthy when I moved out and got engaged, but she didn’t really understand what was going on. I know she wanted to see me grow up and get married. I’m having a pendant filled with her ashes sewn into my dress so she’ll be with me in my own special way.
If I chose someone living/famous I would choose Neil Young 🙂

Hillary Clinton or Obama or RBG. Really tough to choose. Really leaning towards HRC.

TheGridMonster : What if she chokes on a pea while we’re eating, or I accidentally trip her and she breaks a hip? I don’t want to go anywhere near her until January 20, 2021. After that I would love to be in her presence. 😂

I’m AMAZED at how many people chose a grandparent! (Not in a bad way; I just expected to hear more famous names!) I think there’s probably some insightful conclusion about human nature I could draw from this… but I have no clue.
I don’t think it’s fair to answer the question with more than one person, so I’ll say this much: out of Plato, Alexander the Great, Buddha, and Marcus Aurelius, I’d choose Emperor Marcus Aurelius.
Although each of these men are brilliant, philosophical, spiritual, powerful, wise, and talented, only Marcus is both a warrior, a philosopher, a spiritual leader, and an Emperor. He is one of the greatest [and famous] men to have ever lived. Also, I have a little bit of a crush on him. *swoon*!!!!
Do you know what he did, DO YOU EVEN, THOUGH?! Dude is ROMAN EMPEROR, right?! Okay, so he hears that some sneaky little fuck in the senate is screwing his wife. Now, you could just STAND there and have a misplaced hair, and goddamn Caligula or Nero would’ve had your head chopped off or have you thrown into the arena! But MARCUS. Weeeeeeeeeeell! He heard that someone was possibly screwing his wife, and he PROMOTED HIM to a higher position in the Senate! His Stoic practice was so authentic that he ruled and lived with unprecedented compassion and temperance. I think his life is a feat of humanity (albeit given the Roman Empire’s culture).

DeniseSecunda : Alexander the Great has always been my answer to this question, ha.

My mother’s mom, my gram…She died 3 yrs ago last month on the 14th – excatly 2 weeks after my family & I came back from vacation at the ocean that year. It was really strange bc she was fine at the time. It was hard to get over & still is at times. I love & miss her so much. The thing that really hurts me the most is that i didn’t even get to say goodbye to her! 😥 💔
Although I lost all of my grandparents & they were very special to me & still are…I truly miss them more than anything. My dad’s father had passed 21 yrs ago on December of ’95 (Christmas Eve) when I was only 9 years old. He had esophageal cancer & when the hospital operated (which they should never of done) it spread everywhere & he was gone just like that i have to say that was the hardest funeral i had ever went to in my life…

My mom. She passed away when I was a teenager and having had to navigate my late teens to early thirties without her I would be so interested in hearing her perspective on life and all the things. We didn’t get to talk about that kind of stuff while she was sick, since we were all just trying to live in the moment. It would be awesome if she could meet my son too. He has the kind of crazy curly baby hair that I did and that she always loooooooved. 😍
