Another of Santas Helpers

This week one of my husbands old commanders passed away. I know I didn't know him all that well, but he was a man who looked after his troops, so in my book a very good man. He had retired, but continued to work for the Military. Participating in squadron events. LAst year he was Santa for the Childrens Christmas Party. Losing him this week has brought to mind the loss of my husbands Step Father. Toms passing was nearly 3 years ago, but it still seems so fresh in our minds at times. And to lose Mr. Browning to Cancer so suddenly just like we lost Tom makes it all the fresher. Mr. Browning was diagnosed not long after the childrens christmas party and so he didn't even make it through a full year. Tom was the same.
