My Alabama Shaw Family on My Father’s Side From 1861-2014

Granddaddy Adam and Grandmother Courtney called each other sweet names and romanced each other’s backs and lips, when the spirit hit them, in and out of their children’s presence

Hi everyone,

I had seen the love between my grandfather and grandmother, but I wanted to know, for sure, if they loved each other the way I saw them.

It was Daddy Adam Shaw Jr. who told me there was something else about my grandparents. “Monh” (Mama) and “Paw” (Daddy),” he said, “called each other sweet names. He called Monh Wife, and she called him Sweetheart at home, on the porch, in the yard and in the field, and any other place. We all often saw them hugging and kissing. Paw usually took the lead in kissing, but sometimes Monh started kissing Paw. While romancing each other's mouth, lips, and hearts, they smiled with the glee of teenagers, as long as life lasted. Romancing each other’s lips and hearts was easy. They usually sat side-by-side. When the feeling of love hit them, they turned to each other and kissed and hugged. They kissed in adoration with deep heartfelt love. Each of us grew up knowing only how to love a lifetime because that was what we saw Paw and Monh do on a daily basis.”

My grandparents taught my daddy, uncles, and aunts, by precept and example, how to be loving a lifetime to their spouses and everyone, for a lifetime, and they did.
