An Obituary
author unknown
I know all of you were saddened to learn this week of the death of one of our congregation's most valuable members--Someone Else. Someone's passing created a vacancy that will be difficult to fill. Else had been with us for many years and for every one of those years, Someone did far more than the normal person's share of work. Whenever leadership was mentioned, this wonderful person was looked to for inspiration as well as for results--"Someone Else can work with that group." When there was a job to do, an event to direct, or a meeting to attend, one name was on everyone's lips, "Let Someone Else do it." So powerful was Someone's teaching style that many thought Someone Else could teach all of the Bible classes in the church. It was common knowledge that Someone Else was among the great doers in the congregation. When there was a job to be done, everyone just assumed that Someone Else would do the job. Someone Else was a wonderful person, at times appearing superhuman, but a person can only do so much. Were the truth known, everyone 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? Remember, we can't depend on Someone Else anymore.
