  • We’ll Helen you have gone and done it, left me as the last Giddings of our generation. Remember I was 11 years your junior and for me you were the stalwart of our family when Arthur and Paul were in the military(1951/59) and Dad and his sister Emily died (‘54 and ‘57). We did not have much except our pride, but you made sure the Holidays were special. Also, thanks for bringing Pat Casey into my life. Pat was a stabilizing influence my troubled teenage years.
    Lastly, thank you for being the loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, and Nana that you were. The original Nana is awaiting you (along with a host of Casey’s, Giddings, and Sullivan’s. Oh yeah God is wanting to see one of his Best Creations. Love, Jim
