Abu, abuelito
Explanation:
Estoy de acuerdo con mi colega Trans4U.

Es una forma cariñosa de llamar al abuelo (a la abuela se le dice "Mammaw"). Para darle la solución piensa cómo llamarías a tu abuelo. Mis hijas le dicen "abu".

Por ejemplo, una carta firmada por: Mammaw & Pappaw Love You!
O este hermoso ejemplo tomado de la Web:
"Life Without my Pappaw

"My Pappaw means more to me then anything in this world. I was his youngest grandchild ...No matter what Pappaw said...it was law, and no one disagreed. No one disagreed because it was right. He made peace within the family"
Te recomiendo la leas, es muy bonita.

Saludos cordiales, Clarisa
