Re: 'Steeltown Santa Claus'; Dec 22

I read this heartfelt and beautiful tribute to our own Santa, Jimmy Lomax.

He is one in a million. How many people, young or older, would be willing to donate so much of their time and money to help the less fortunate?

I remember when he was Citizen of the Year for Hamilton.

My mother was still alive then, and she and I both phoned in our nominations for Jimmy.

There has never been a more deserving person of the Citizen of the Year than he. Some day soon, I hope to hear he has also received the Order of Ontario.

We need more people like Jimmy in our midst.

God bless him, long may he thrive, and long may the precious traditions of Christmas remain with us, not only in Hamilton, but worldwide.
