I can't actually tell everyone the amount of pain I felt when my Grand mother died. It was as if I was thrown into fire, my grandmother's death as been one of the shocking events I ever passed through . I feel like I am missing her everyday at any time . So I decided to write an article titled " we missed you Grand mother"
Let me use this moment to appreciate my sponsors for their love , support , counseling and encouragement are very wonderful .
How it happened ;
It was on a Sunday morning , 11th of December 2016 , I had just noticed that my Grandmother sickness was getting out of hand . All of my Grandmother's body were shaking and very hot in temperature , I noticed something is wrong somewhere but I never expected that my Grandmother is leaving so soon .( My Grand mother give birth to three daughters my mother and my two big aunties). A few minutes later , an Evangelist came in to our house , where my mom narrated how my Grandma was feeling to her . The evangelist was with a bottle of holy communion , she prayed into the holy communion and she gave it to my Grand mother , To my greatest surprised , my grand mother drank everything in a few seconds , so the lady evangelist prayed for my grand mother and left our house. My aunties and my cousin arrived with a doctor , the doctor quickly examined my grand mother and the doctor told everyone that we will have to take my Grandmother to the hospital so as to run a test for her . My Grand mother said she is not going , but her children ( my mom and my big two aunties) where able to convince her, so my Grand mother was taken to the hospital to run a test , I was at home with my aunt's and my cousin.
Rain began to fall heavily , my cousin who was looking at the window shouted " Grandma is ascending to heaven" we all said to her Shut up , But we never knew she saw a vision . A few more minutes we are called from the hospital to come so we all went straight to the hospital , getting there we all heard that Grandma is dead . We all wept and cry , we are all in a sad mood through out that day.
What next ;
On December 13th 2016, my grand mother was buried in our native village so we are all planning for her first year remembrance and thanks giving service.
Finally , on December 16th 2017 , it was on my Grand mother 1st year remembrance and thanks giving service . The program were presented in a very special way , where so many activities took place ;
