HEAVEN is eternal bliss but your deeds determine your place there. Any human’s physical placement on earth resolves that of heaven. Your faith in God will give you an everlasting joy. Heaven is eternity deserving of every Christian.
The parish priest, St. Michael’s Catholic Church Dunukofia Local Government Area of Anambra State, Nawgu, Rev. Fr, Harold Eboni gve these submissions at funeral service for Mrs. Patience Ndidiamaka Nwoye, at her husband, late Jerome Nwoye’s compound, Akamanator Village, Nawgu..
Fr. Eboni admonished Christians to see life as a process that others should emulate to get to the desired destination. “Our deeds shouldn’t deter others from God leading to eternal damnation. We must be our brother’s keeper, ensuring that they have faith,” he said.
Godwin, first son of the late Mrs. Nwoye, said her mother was a woman of virtue; who wouldn’t want to see any hurt come to anybody, “She prayed for everyone. What I will miss about her the most is that she was my prayer warrior, my backbone. And any time I run to her in need of anything she answers. She was the kind of person that would starve to ensure that others eat.”
“I have a young family, I need someone that will guide me, and that is a vacuum that her death has created. She was someone that you can depend on. Some women when the going gets tough they will abandon their husbands but she wasn’t like that. I lost my father before my mother’s demise. She was with my father throughout his sickness till he gave up. My mother was one in a million. She was a role model, an epitome of motherhood, the kind of mother I would want every woman to emulate,” he said.
Another of the son, Ikechukwu, describing his mother said she was a good woman, kind and caring, “she was the best mother I have ever known. She would do everything to ensure that peace reigned. Her death is a big loss to us. Her kind gesture was second to none.
“People don’t give bad remarks about my mother. I will miss her delicious meal. Above all, her advice, especially in challenging times, was priceless. She was a blessing to us. I pray that her soul rests in peace.
Blessing Nwoye, speaking of her mother said she was lovely, patient, and tolerating who ensured we were led in the right path,
“The news of her death devastated me. I thought I wouldn’t survive it. If there was any better definition of a good woman that was what she was. Now that she is no more, I will advise my siblings to tread the right path that manifests those virtues that our mother was known for. I will miss her love.”
