      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

  1. What's In A Name?......Everything

    Not long before I was born, then Massachusetts State senator John Fitzgerald Kennedy and his wife Jacqueline visited the city where my family lived. My father, a local police officer at the time was on duty assisting with the security of this popular politician and his wife. I don't know why they chose our city but my guess would be to visit our waterfront as it boasts one of the oldest fishing ports in the country. After JFK's business there was complete my father had the opportunity to meet our future President and First Lady. It was a brief but memorable meeting for my dad for sure but it would be the senator's wife Jacqueline that would make a life long impression on him. He was captivated at first sight by Mrs. Kennedy's beauty and poise. He recounted many times her sweet and kind nature. So taken by her he would go on to name his fourth child, a daughter "Jacqueline" . That would be me. I always kew that I was named for Jackie Kennedy and I grew to love her too and was proud to be named after our First Lady. To me she epitomized grace, beauty and intellect. In my eyes she was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen. I was only 10 years old when our President was assassinated. A sad day that would be marked in history. Most people know where they were that dreadful day 50 years ago on November 22 1963 as do I. News coverage of the assassination broke my young heart but it would be the images of Jacqueline leaning into her injured husband and then frantically trying to escape the car that haunt me. 50 years later I am still brought to tears by those news clips. I love my name and what it stands for and I still feel oddly connected to the memory of the late Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. Http://www.finallyfinishing.com
