Recently we were saddened by the death of one of our committee’s most valuable members, who went by the name of Someone Else. His passing leaves a gap which will be hard to find. Someone Else had been with the committee from the beginning. He always did more than the normal person’s share of work.
Whenever there was a job to do, whenever a helping hand was needed, whenever we needed someone just to listen – one word was on everyone’s lips: “Someone Else will do it.”
Whenever there was a need for volunteers, everyone took it for granted that Someone Else would step forward.
Someone Else was a beautiful person, sometimes appearing to be super-human. But a person can only do so much. And if we are going to be honest about it, we’ll have to admit that we all expected too much of Someone Else.
Perhaps that was what killed him!
