Letters to the Editor
Received the latest edition of The Drumheller Mail. Thank you for printing my letter about Mr. Dahl and the work he finished on the War Veteran’s graves.
I have also followed the story of the women from Drumheller, Mrs. McKee and Mrs. Snyder, and their dear father who was in the Second World War.
Their story brought back so many memories for me as a young child of the late William and Antionette Guterson. My parents were so worried about their homeland Nijmegen and Tilburg, Holland as the Netherlands were so devastated and people were starving in their homeland! They ate tulip bulbs to stay alive. My parents sent all kinds of parcels through the Red Cross, some arrived but many did not - stolen I guess. My father would paint the address on a white flour sack in black paint.
Thank you again to all our veterans and especially the Canadian Troops who saved my parents homeland.
Respectfully yours, Mary Guterson Campbell High River, Alberta
