Personal Family Interview I am unable to interview a grandparent due to my grandparents on my mother’s side and my grandfather on my father’s side being deceased. My grandmother on my father’s side is currently in a rehabilitation facility for having fallen in December. Although I would have loved to interview her, she has been extremely busy with physical therapy in order to hopefully be placed back comfortably into her home.
