Some pages from Grandma Jean’s high school autograph book…
The first one is from her high school sweetheart and my grandpa. When questioned he couldn’t remember what “Amote” meant but after some research I found that it was latin and meant a very stong love (like a punch to the chest). Strong feelings grandpa. The next one is from grandma’s cousin Donna, who became my grandma several years after my grandma Jean died. And the last autograph is by my grandma herself. I never realized what a sense of humor my grandma had. She was a popular girl at her very small school and she stayed popular throughout her life. I would contribute that to the fact that she was genuinely interested in people.
The McConaughy side of my family has a tradition of taking 4 generation pictures. I love these and I am blessed to take part in this tradition.
