I feel the same way. But I think Mom and Dad would understand because I think they would pick each other over their parents, too.

My grandma. We were extremely close, I was over at her house almost daily growing up. We had a perfect relationship together and we always made each other laugh. She also always took time to play games or bake with me and we had many sleepovers.

I thankfully haven't lost many people in my life so far.. Both my parents are still here, and I'm an only child. But by far my grandma would be who I'd love to spend another day with. Mainly because now, that I'm a grown adult, I would love to talk more deeply and ask her about her life. Never did that when I was a child, now wish I could.

I know very few people who would not like to have appreciated their grandparents more. I wish I had taken the time to learn knitting from my Grandma, taken more time to ask about all the adventures and events of her life, listened to her wisdom, written things down, even, or recorded her voice. Actually, my grandfather, too. But when we are young, we don't think about things like that. We are just concerned with our own lives, and don't have much of a concept of the fact that our grandparents will not be there for ever. And it seems only as we get older that we realize how much wisdom they must have had. With grandparents, it seems often be the common condition that "you don't know what you've got til its gone."

I chose friend and was shocked to see that this group is in the minority. When I read the post I immediately thought of my best friend from school. I'm close with the other two, but there's something about a close friend relationship. We told each other things we would never tell family or lovers. So, don't feel left out; I'm here...

Why and when did your friend die, if you don't mind me asking?

It would be my Dear Uncle Luchy - may His Soul eternally RIP.

He took me by the hand during my wayward teenage years. He made time to teach me what every father is suppose to teach a son: to never fear or run from hard work; to embrace discipline; to love your job and give it your absolute best.

Thank you for those valuable life lessons, Uncle Luchy.

I chose lover, because another day with my husband would be wonderful. But my adult self would like to spend time with my maternal grandfather, who died when I was 6, or my paternal grandfather, who died when I was 9. I was lucky enough to know my grandmothers as an adult, so the opportunity to know my grandfathers as an adult, even for just one day, would be pretty cool.

A friend who killed herself. There were so many things I wish I'd said to her.
