It’s always a good time to say thank you

A few days ago I had the honor of attending a memorial service for Marlene Tolleson, a quiet servant at the Kershaw County Council on Aging. For more than 20 years, she worked tirelessly on behalf of those who needed her most, our seniors. An advocate, a counselor and sometimes firm encourager, the folks she served knew that they had a friend and advocate in Marlene.

As I pondered the memories of her work at the Council on Aging, I could not help but remember two others who recently retired from their ranks as well. The council’s executive director for almost 20 years, Donna Outen and her faithful finance director, Sylvia Little, who worked at the Council on Aging for more than 35 years, gave of themselves tirelessly on behalf of our seniors.

So, please take a moment with me to honor these three servant leaders, Marlene, Donna and Sylvia. To those of us who worked alongside them or were served by them, we know the caring hearts, the dedicated work, and the sincere care they gave. To the rest, I challenge you to keep an eye out for those in your life who make your life better! And remember to honor them and let them know you appreciate them. Thank you Marlene, Donna and Sylvia for making lives longer, richer and brighter!
