  1. I was blessed to have a relationship with 5/8 great-grandparents. Every Sunday night after church, we would visit Great Grandpa and Grandma Homer, which formed a special relationship. Unfortunately my husband was never given the opportunity to meet my beloved great-grandparents. However, since I still talk highly of my time with my grandparents, my husband knows they were as special to me as his late grandma was to him. So Baby Homer is named after his great-great-grandpa!
