Kelly, that is terrific, pls give her my best. I love that name, my DM's 1st cousin was 20 yrs. older than her and she was called Toots, due to a song out at that time. She was always like an 'aunt' to me, what a doll! Another way that name came into my life, I had 2 imaginary friends when I was little ( I liked a lot of company then lol) I called the girl Toots. We had a great time, lol.
Anyway, have a great time w/ G'ma Toots. Wonderful G'ma's are such a blessing.
God bless. Alice.
happy birthday, grandma Toots! I'm 62 years old and have a grandfather who is still alive and living by himself in Oklahoma...still does some farming and just bought a new tractor! He will be 106...maybe the two of them can get together!
Kelly, Midwest by way of New Jersey via Ireland lol. My Great Aunt (mother of Toots) was born in Ireland, she and her parents and sibs came to NJ, they were sponsered by her aunt. I just think it's a great name wherever it came from, it always seems to suit the wonderful ladies that proudly wear the name. Glad you all had a great time, wish you many more. Since you like to write, this is the perfect subject to help bring to life. Did you mention it yet to her, I think she will be delighted to know her life will be known to many generations. I wish I had done that w/ many of my relatives and old family friends. I have tried to get my DM to share a lot of stories of her family and ones from my father's side of the family. Some things she has a hard time w/ but others she remembers very well. Good luck and have fun!!
