We were saddened to learn this week of the death of one of our most valuable members: Someone Else. Someone's passing created a vacancy that will be difficult to fill. Else has been with us for many years. Someone did far more than a normal person's share of work. Whenever leadership was mentioned, this wonderful person was looked to for inspiration as well as results. "Someone Else can work with that group."

Whenever there was a job to do, a committee to chair, or a meeting to attend, one name was on everyone's list: "Let Someone Else do it." Someone Else was a wonderful person, sometimes appearing superhuman, but a person can do only so much. 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 called on to do something, remember -- we can't depend on Someone Else any more!
