Subject: a death of one of Chris Dragland’s children
Hello Vaughn,
I haven’t written to you in a while. I was checking the web site tonight, hoping that some other brave souls have ventured forth to submit some family history, but, nope – it doesn’t look like that is the case.
Anyway, my oldest sister, Gladys Dragland Peterson died yesterday, July 4, 2003 so I would like that to be indicated on the family page. Also, for some reason, I must have given you the wrong year for her date of birth. She was born in Feb. 28, 1920, so she lived to be 83. Hell, I’ll take that. That would give me 26 years of retirement, were I to be so fortunate. Anyway. I’d appreciate it if you would make those corrections.
Best Wishes to you and yours,
Don Dragland

 Well I hate that my first post on our Dragland forum is going to be a sad one, but hopefully I will be around posting more up-beat news from time to time.
I’m sorry to say that my great-aunt, Hilma (177.41), who was Daniel Dragland’s only daughter, passed away yesterday (June 24th, 2003). We aren’t sure of funeral arrangements as of yet. Please pray for her surviving son Dale, who is the last of his immediate family.
Thank you,

I will update our family tree accordingly.
