"Aunty Ejemeh...

So beautiful,
So radiant,
Forever young...
Oh how I reminisce on the beautiful tributes said of you by those you imparted;
Oh how I constantly try to put words together, in an attempt to describe how much of an amazing person you are;
Albeit the multitude of words at my disposal, I'd end up realizing that words fail me...
A personification of humility,
An embodiment of first-rate virtues;
365days gone by, and I have no doubt that for the rest of time, the memories of your uniqueness will resound for generations to come.

All is Well!!!"

"She shall rise first...!!

"But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words".
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18"
