The photos on this page are from the 1960's

Tom O'Rourke and Grace Veno O'Rourke, seated in front of 158 Neck St, Weymouth MA (where the sons and daughters of Eliza & Benjamin Veno grew up.  Grace & Tom lived there.)

Grace Veno O'Rourke - around 1968

Gracie in her yard.  I'm sure I am not alone in remembering how much Gracie loved her garden.  She really had a green thumb and was very talented at arranging flowers!  I remember her telling me about the orange/reddish poppies in front of her in the photo above! 

Lester & Jean Veno & their children, Steven, Susan, David and Sam the dog

from Susan Veno (standing in back): " The brown/sepia colored pic with the dog was taken when I was 16 because I remember returning very elated frm a very liberating trip to Austria with that outfit.  That was 1968. "
