"I know that all of you were saddened to learn this week of the death of one of our most valuable teammates Someone Else. Else’s passing created a vacancy that will be difficult to fill. Someone has been with us for many years, and for every one of those years, Someone did far more than the normal person’s share of the 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 workshop to lead, or a meeting to attend, the same name was on everyone’s lips. Let Someone Else do it. It was common knowledge that Someone Else was among the largest givers of time and talent in our organization.
Someone Else was a wonderful person, sometimes even appearing super-human. And the truth is that everyone expected too much of Someone Else. Now Someone Else is gone. And we are left to wonder what to do now. Someone Else left us all 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." (Author unknown.)
Please come along to the AGM and help fill the many vacancies left by the passing of Someone Else. Don't expect his sister Somebody Else to step in. We need real people. No experience necessary.
