Someone Else


Our church was 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 class to teach, or a meeting to attend, 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 with that group." 
       
It was common knowledge that  Someone Else  was among the most liberal givers in our church. Whenever there was a financial need, everyone just assumed  Someone Else  would make up the difference. 
       
Someone Else  was a wonderful person; sometimes appearing superhuman. 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.
