Hawkins leaves us again

About a month ago, my good friend Hawkins left for another tour in Iraq. Hawkins will be gone for over a year which means he will miss a lot of holidays. As you know, Hawkins loves his holidays. His girlfriend wanted to send him off with something special that would help him get through the next rough year. So, she planned a surprise holidays party with all his friends. We had a slip-n-slide, a birthday cake, Christmas decor, Halloween pumpkins, fire works and a shot was had at midnight. I really miss the guy already, but through email, I get to talk to him weekly. I am just praying he comes home safe so we can continue to celebrate holidays together as a family.
