Prior to committing her to mother earth, a convoy of cars, busses and fully armed policemen had gone to the morgue to convey her remains to her country home, where she was finally laid to rest .
On their way from the morgue, a group of undertakers took charge. With the casket on their shoulders displaying several dancing steps to the music blaring from a mobile music disco jockey to the admiration of all the villagers that accompanied them to the morgue.
The breath taking dancing steps by the undertakers who were all in white shirts and trousers with the casket on their shoulders marvelled all those present at Late Agnes Erehobho Eromosele’s country home to the extent that nobody cared about the misty and cloudy weather that was threatening to disrupt the event but which the Almighty God took absolute control of.
While members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), House of Victory, Lagos Province 2, Ajasa, Lagos led by Pastor Femi Adetoyinbo and Pastor Mrs. Funke Adetoyinbo, were busy officiating the Service of Songs, the elders of the village were at the other end conducting their affairs in line with their tradition simultaneously with no one disturbing or interfering with the other .
Officiating, Pastor Adetoyinbo took the Bible reading from Revelation Chapter 14 Verse 13 to 20 and it reads, ‘13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
‘14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
‘15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
‘16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
‘17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
‘18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
‘19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
‘20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.’
The Pastor urged those who had come to pay their last respect to the departed that Late Mummy Agnes has played her part on earth and passed on and that everyone at this event should live a good life
He said that one thing is clear; everybody will pay the supreme price and meet their creator and that no one was created to live forever no matter how healthy or rich the person is.
