The greater Rees family of Wales has had a sad week with the passing, March 10th, of Tony Lythe (Anthony Frederick Arthur Lythe), husband of Cristabel (nee John) Lythe, my 3rd cousin once removed. Cris' great-grandmother and my great-grandmother were sisters in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales, daughters of patriarch Elias Rees born 1811 in Carmarthenshire. Tony was a Welshman through and through, born in Breconshire, and always proud of his heritage. A wonderful person, he will be missed.
