HE DID NOT DIE. HE TRANSMOGRIFIED

Chidiomimi, our last son and a genius, had a congenital heart problem. We consulted several Paediatric Cardiologists. They all said that surgery will be the only corrective procedure. We prepared him for the surgery.

He told his friends that he was coming back and while we were at the elevator of the hospital, he told us, my Lovey and I, that he does not want to die and we assured him of the success of the heart surgery but he died. No, he did not die, he transmogrified. He abandoned his mortal body and joined the saints triumphants.

The cardiac surgery was performed by the Indian Paediatric Cardiologist of 33 years experience with his team for 5 hours. We prayed but he died. No, he did not die, he transmogrified. He abandoned his mortal body and joined the saints triumphants.

He received his First Holy Communion on Holy Thursday but he died. No, he did not die, he transmogrified. He abandoned his mortal body and joined the saints triumphants. He is now a saint.

He was everybody’s love but he died. No, he did not die, he transmogrified. He abandoned his mortal body and joined the saints triumphants.

He was always top in his class but he died. No, he did not die, he transmogrified. He abandoned his mortal body and joined the saints triumphants.

The surgery was performed at Afe Babalola University Teaching Hospital, Ado-Ekiti, adjudged the best in the country but he died. No, he did not die, he transmogrified. He abandoned his mortal body and joined the saints triumphants.

We know that he is in Heaven but the pain of separation is excruciating. He is in peace but we are in pieces.

Lord, bind us together and make us whole.
