Let­ters to the Edi­tor

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS -

Dear 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
