Dyson Family
Myrna Veer Dyson - This is my mother (in yellow) and my aunt, Virginiamae (Mathews) Dyson. She is the widow of my uncle Bernard Garr Dyson. They are the last of the family of old folks. I am not sure of my aunt's age, but around 90, I think.

Frank Veer served in the military. This is a picture of him today
