Granny is really my Aunt. She is my mom’s sister. My mom passed away when my daughter Jamie was just nine years old. That is a very young age to no longer have any grandmas. During all the family gatherings, all the other kids would call Aunt Dot “Granny”. Jamie was the only child that called her Aunt Dot. My Aunt Dot and Uncle Roscoe basically adopted Jamie into their family. They even presented her with a certificate signed by all of the family members.
To personalize this sign, I asked each of those family members to give me a word that they felt described this wonderful woman, their mom, mother-in-law, granny and aunt.
Most of the words are self explanatory, however there are a couple of them I will tell you about. Dumplin is the pet name my late Uncle Roscoe had for my Aunt. My cousin John, nicknames his loved ones. His word is right there in the middle, Grangel. Granny-Angel= Grangel.
I think this is a wonderful gift, I’m hoping my Aunt Dot enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it.
