We all have grandparents, but mine are an especially are a big part of my family. Our grandparents do not live close to us, so it’s great when we get to see them. It's especially tough since our family is so far apart. Family is the most important thing to our family. This time was an especially important to our family for a number of reasons. We had just left our home in Rockwell City, Iowa to head to Des Moines to board a plane to Phoenix. My brother had never flown before.
