|Let the memory of Gabriel be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved Father, Grand Father, teacher and Friend, Gabriel Akame, 77, born on November 5, 1935 and passed away on March 4, 2013.
We will remember him forever.
It's today that the family is meeting once again to pay tribute to your rich and fruitful life. Rich with friends, experiences, love, and happiness. Fruitful with children, grandchildren and so many pupils and protégées that you nurtured through childhood and adulthood to become responsible, self-respecting and honourable members of your extended family and society across at least three continents.
I was lucky enough to have been your friend, to have become part of your family and to have benefited from your love, humour, wisdom and generosity.
Today we all come together in Bangem in body or in spirit to thank God once again for sending you to us, and again to thank God for taking you safely back into His fold.
My thoughts are with you all, and especially Valentine and Mami. Tears will no doubt flow again but today they are shed less for loss and more for the happiness of reunion.
We do miss you, but we will never forget you. Today, Bangem's Bouncer is bouncing once again in all our hearts.
"Our Dads here and gone,will always remain precious and close to our hearts forever!!
May the good Lord grant him everlasting rest and peace..."
"I cannot believe we haven't spoken for three years. I still have your number in my phone, I can't bring myself to delete it. I miss you dearly. I will always LOVE you. You remain forever in my heart.....
"Pa ; words won;t suffice to expresss ur love n concern u had for us n though ure nomore u keep shining in us. we definitely have to say thank u for all what u did for us..we miss u but we are happy u contributed enormously in sharping our destinies.what else does a father as u were to us need to gladen his heart in his tomb ? u did it all ;thanks once more pa AKAME"
"Hello this is zephyr i miss you very much,and envy that you are constantly having good weather in heaven because here in england its very wet and cold. Tell uncle Valentine that he is dearly missed by us all.You both will stay forever in our hearts. love zephyr
PS/i will catch that fish for you one day ;)"
"My dearest Dad,
A few words will never suffice to do justice to the love, nurturing, and strength that you gave us. The lessons you taught us will never be forgotten as we continue to use them effectively day by day. The love you showed us will always be cherished and passed on to others.
You are no longer with us physically, but your spirit lives on. Memories of you will ALWAYS stay in our hearts.
We are comforted that you are in Heaven and watching over us. Please give our brother, our love. You both are always on our minds.
I'd leave you for now, with some wise words from the Lebanese prophet, Kahlil Gibran. I am sure you'll enjoy reading them.
"Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top,
then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs,
then shall you truly dance".
May your light continue to shine and brighten our way, keeping all evil away from us.
Your loving daughter,

""The weight of this sad time we must obey;
Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say.

Shall never see so much, nor live so long. " It is a very sad day for my family and I. My beloveth uncle, Pa Akame passed away yesterday. Oh papa, we cry, we weep. We are going to miss you so much. Papa was an amazing uncle, a great dad and an excellent"
