|Let the memory of Dora be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Dora Elango, 69, born on March 28, 1942 and passed away on November 27, 2011. We will remember her forever.
Mourn me not; but remember I have lived –
And let that little bit of me that lies in you live on.
Don’t let it hold you back, or give you cause for tears;
But let it spur you on to live and love and laugh.
My legacies to you are simple memories
Our acts together rendered into thoughts;
So take the best of them and make them breathe
And share the benefit of them with those you love.
No need for monuments, or empty dedications
No need to strain your grief or call the world to halt.
You are my children; and that is all I need.
Your lives, well-lived, are testament enough.
"My beau, I can't believe it's been four years already since you left us... I'm not in the mood to say much this time around, I just feel very lonely sometimes, and I miss you terribly everyday. I worry about what your thoughts were during your last days, and I also worry about the fact that you were all by yourself when you passed on...I worry because I know that you never liked being by yourself, and you were always worried that something bad might happen to you when nobody was around. It makes me very sad and angry when those thoughts cross my mind. I feel very angry at myself and the world at large. I personally think life dealt you a very difficult hand. I can only hope that you are in peace with everything where ever you are. I love you!"
"So as you are sleeping Mamie Dora , in the cradle of the Lord,you have a new grand son called Tata .keeping your memories alive.There is a big fight going on now do not worry God willing i will fight for what is yours. Goodnight"
"Happy Birthday Mamie.. I will celebrate this day with you today. Rest in peace my mother, rest in peace...."
"Oh my sweet and lovely mother, it's been three years since you left me; your "beau". I miss you terribly, every minute of everyday. I refuse to dwell on anybody's opinion of you, because in my eyes, you were the perfect mother! They say, you can't choose your parents, but if I could, I'll choose you a million times over! I have a photograph of you in my bedroom with your iconic smile, whenever I gaze upon it, it melts my heart. You were such a gentle soul, it took so little to make you happy. I miss your very soft and soothing voice, you were selfless, loyal, and fearless. You were my mother, you were my friend. I miss our shopping trips and how I used to amaze you by taking a fraction of the time to prepare some of your favorite dishes, that'll otherwise, require more time. I miss you, my friends that were privileged to have known you, miss you as well. I try very hard to put a smile on my face everyday, in memory of you! So long...."
"Dear Mammie, how quickly time goes by, it's like only yesterday your left us, I can't believe is three years already. When I remember your smile, it brightens my day and thought of your soft angelic voice seem to smooth the way. Your gentle kind and simple spirit is still with me. Though you have, you're not forgotten, your memory still remains with me as always. Sweet Dreams Mammie, rest in peace.....⛪️"
"Sleep well mammie till we meet again."
"As a friend to Comfort Elango and former classmate I happen to have been a beneficiary of Mama Dora Elango's love, kind heartedness and support. I remember growing up in Kumba and occasionally Comfort will take me home and sometimes we will meet her in the market where she was always willing and ready to open her arms to welcome me as a daughter. I have always thought about her and more especially Comfort because we lost touch long time ago. Today my heart bleeds because this world lost a great woman, loving and kindhearted.

"Ms. Elango, your love and memory will live on forever through your legacy of kindness, compassion and generosity. 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful...' (Matthew 25:23 NIV)
Delightful with a clever and kind attitude..
Optimistic with an excellent character...
Radiant with a sparkling personality..
Affectionate beyond comparison..."

I will remember you most especially for the unconditional love you shared to me and my siblings and the love and concern you had for my mother. Love you always and say hi to my mama.
