2A--The Malak0ff News, Thursday, July 2, 1981 m i: :, i:!/ii . JIIILIIILY * M'flII 5OH I)... J........ M e-An n_deri ng By Ann l ounsavoll There are those people who pass quietly through this life making impact as they go. Jim Williams, who died suddenly at his home last Tuesday, was one of those people. The total impact of our loss has not become fully aware to those of us who knew, respected and loved him. It will come gradually, with time, as we try to fill the gap left by his passing. He served as a steadying influence in my life by his faithful service to the Trinidad First United Methodist Chur- ch. There he served in every possible capacity . . .Sunday School teacher, chairman of the board, choir director and treasurer for more years than I can remember. He made a great im- pression on me by caring for others who needed care, for loving his wife with respect, and for raising a family full of fine children. In recent years I have worked with various youth groups in our church. He was always there, quietly helping. Sometimes he pressed a $5 bill in my hand to help pay for gas for a trip we were making. At times he came to me, quietly, and offered to pay the expense for sending a child to church camp. At other times, when we had fund raising dinners or bake sales, Mr. Jim was always there, quietly supportive, with Mrs. Williams at his side. It is a great tribute to a man when his passing is so widely me)wand. "It takes a good heart to be the kind of man that Mr. Jim has been. His heart played out on him last week, but I know that a part of it is still at work .... the little parts that he shared so freely with others.

A school trustees once said that you could always tell a good superintendent by restrooms in the school building. If those rooms were maintained, clean and neat, taking care of all facets of the job. We believe the same can be said for a city. If the city is concerned and cares, the resting place of their dead will be tended to. Malakoff has a beautiful cemetery site. It is, and has been, well maintained over the is nine acres of dedicated land that is fenced, with brick markers at the entrance the center. It has been cared for .... and that care is obvious. In addition, members of the Malakoff Cemetery Association have looked with the future. In an effort to make the cemetery perpetual care, a fund has been nearing its goal of $50,000 to assure that care will continue throughout the years. It takes money to do these things. Money that must come from people who expect to facilities someday and from people who have family already buried there.
