Mrs Smith daily went to the Church.In fact she had been visiting the Church for the last twenty years.After offering her prayers, she went to the platform behind the church,where other ladies assembled everyday. All of them, around fifty  years,  discussed their family affairs.Mrs.Smith was a placid  lady.She was the unelected leader of the group.Every one had a word of praise for her.Anyone who had a personal problem,would ask her without any hesitation. Her solutions were very wise and  practical. Some times the ladies wondered that  Mrs. Smith never spoke about her family or her problems.One day Mrs. Smith did not come.Every body felt her absence. When she did not come for two more days, they decided to visit her. After questioning many people they located the house. They were stunned to see that she was no more.They wrote  a very emotional  obituary, praising her to the sky. When her last rites were being performed in the church, soft music was  resonating far and wide.
