  • To My Great Uncle Benson Henry Wyman, although we never met, I just wanted to let you know that I am working on our family tree (carrying on your mother Alice Mary Wyman (nee Dear) fantastic work) It seems strange that when working on this and compiling all these photos it feels like you all are standing there beside me doing this. Am very proud of the sacrifices you and your brother Ralph Wyman made for us, and our country and get to know each of you through my research. My nephrew Wilhelm looks exactly like you so many generations after,its amazing just how the genetic link lives on ;) Love & Hugs Your Great Niece Tracy Rudzevicius XX00
