Thought for Today


We were saddened to learn this week of the death of one of our most valued members, Someone Else. Someone's passing creates a vacancy that will be difficult to fill. Else has been with us for many years, and for every one of those years, Someone did far more than a normal person's share of the work. Whenever there was a job to do, a meeting to attend, or a meeting to chair, one name was on everyone's list: "Let Someone Else do it."Whenever leadership was mentioned, this wonderful person was looked to for inspiration as well as results. "Someone Else can work that job." It was common knowledge that Someone Else was among the most liberal givers in our group. Whenever there was a financial need, everyone just assumed Someone Else would make up the difference.S omeone Else was a wonderful person, sometimes appearing super human. Were the truth known, everybody expected too much of Someone Else. Now Someone Else is gone! We wonder what we are going to do. Someone Else left a wonderful example to follow, but who is going to follow it? Who is going to do the things Someone Else did? When you are asked to help this year, remember - we can't depend on Someone Else anymore.
