The Imperial Church Service- Amidst Peach and Coral decors, Tolusworld’s Mother pays her last respect to God…….Day 3

Finally it was time to take my mom, Chief (Mrs) Margaret Durosomo Akintan’s body to church for the last time to pay her last respect to God, her maker until that day when the trumpet will sound and she will rise again with the righteous ones. Again, she was carried in her lovely glittering white casket by the ever efficient Pallbearers. Placed on the white casket were 2 wreaths made from freshly cut flowers- Mama loved fresh flowers.

Everyone was dressed in expensive Yoruba traditional regalia, Asooke (aka ofi). The color code for the day was peach and coral. We choose such bright lovely colors because my mother was known for her beauty and fashion (besides her peaceful, generous and warm character). Charismatic until the day she passed on….

Later, I will upload pictures of the Mausoleum- the dome-like shaped house my mom was laid to rest in.

If this your first time on Tolusworld, thanks for stopping by. In the last few days I have been covering the home going of my dear mom. To play catch up on the tribute, Day 1 pictures, Day 2 pictures and videos of pallbearers display, and wake-keepclick on the red hyperlinks.
