James Enoh Etamebong, 29, born on December 11, 1986 and rested in the LORD on December 26, 2015. We will remember YOU forever.
"Chaii!!! Life! Still can't believe I'm leaving this tribute for you. Days have passed by but still very difficult to accept. RIP don petit. God alone knows why....."
"James was my friend, like a brother, we spent quality, tough and good times together and shared lots of values. When I heard of his dreadful demise, my first thought was that it was another joke. We would share stupid jokes, play games and pranks on each other. And now he's left us with his finale, every forthcoming christmas will never be the same. I believe he's laughing now, Classic! I really miss you, Rest In Peace bro, See you"
"Still cannot believe that you are gone..."
"It’s amazing how life can take abrupt turns without prior warnings. Being my Birthday, today was made for us to celebrate and give thanks to the Lord for giving me one additional year to my life. However, it happens to be the same day you will be laid to your final resting place.
But as I celebrate my Birthday and a new year in my life, I will also celebrate your new life of into eternity. Because though you are out of sight and I miss your physical presence, all the moments we shared together during your short live on earth (from our childhood days to the early hours of December 26th, 2015) will always remain fresh in my memory like it was yesterday. For this reason, until I die, I will forever dedicate my birthday to remember your legacy while you were with us here on earth.
January 16 will henceforth be a celebration of my Birthday and the New Life of my Brother and Best friend: James Enoh Etamebong. I pledge to live and uphold your legacy forever my dear brother…until we meet again.
This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad. - Etamebong James (RIP)"
"RIP bro! Words can't explain how I feel right now."
"The Candle light dangles n' goes off.
Beautiful flowers lay all over thee
No! The flowers speak of evil
The paradox of shunning beauty
We searched around n' nothing to tradeoff
We've finally come to terms that you're gone.
All we wished was the best
In the Supreme lies the answer
Though the mortal is laid to rest
Your memories remain strong and on
"Where do I begin from James??????? I could never have imagined in a hundred years that I'll be writing a tribute on your behalf. It's just surreal my friend. I regret that d last time I saw u, we didn't have enough time to chat n catch up on so many things. But one of your last words will remain with me forever.. "Mandi, Be PRODUCTIVE to your Environment. You were so ambitious, full of life and a dedicated friend. No matter the distance, you tried to keep in touch. You were a source of encouragement to your pals man... I'll miss u dearly and most especially Your Limbe crew misses you... I pray that God will receive your soul to eternal rest.. #AdieuJames"
"James, u were a brother and friend to me. U enjoyed life as it was given to us by God. Still in shock can't u gone so soon. All I see teaches me to trust the creator for what I can't see. RIP bro till we meet again."
"Am happy i was there to share the last moments of your life.The more i try to accept ur death the more it hurts.YOU LIVED, YOU LOVED,the hearts you have touched is a proof that you where here and u made a different in this world.Will forever miss u ma dear friend,God sure has a better reason for taking u now.
RIP my Dear James"
"It's so surreal how things happen in life. The last time I saw you James we were all hanging out with friends on the 24th of December then 48hrs later you're gone?... How come??? May your gentle soul RIP. We will forever miss you. I still can't believe it. Rest well dear"
""Like A Perfect Flower
That Is Just Beyond Your Reach
Gone Too Soon
Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight
Here One Day
Gone One Night"
"James the thought of your passing still feels like a dream to me.I spoke with you on christmas day and you sounded like the happy man you have always been.God gives and he takes.I pray the Almighty grants your soul eternal rest in his heavenly kingdom where you belong away from this cruel world.Will forever miss you Nanga"
"I did not know you personally but it hurts to see such a young vibrant soul depart in such a sad way. I pray the good lord strengthens all your loved ones.Rest in the lord. It's a pth we will all take."
"James james can't belive our conversation at the end of year boardroom meeting was a way to say good bye. .....i am certain you should be close to angles ...adieu RIP James"
"James Enoh Etamebong, little we knew God was to call your name. In Life we loved you dearly , in death we will do the same. You left us with beautiful memories , our friendship and love is still our guide. Though we cannot see you,you will remain in our hearts forever. But as God calls us one by one , the chain will link again. ADIEU ADIEU!!!!!!!"
"its just between God, You and I that know how deeply i feel about everything, i cant express myself better, but only God knows deeply the sadness and sorrow in my heart. Last time I saw you was 14 years ago. Cant believe its been that long but it feels short. Your death has strengthen and shook us all wide awake of how we should appreciate life. May your soul be with God."
"James! Weh! I really can't believe you've passed. So many memories! Well, I know you're in a better place now, and we've gained an angel. May God accept and keep you closest to Him. Rest in peace."
"Glancing through your pictures just makes it look so unreal. So full of energy and very bright future. I can't imagine the plans you had already forged for yourself bro. God remains the alpha and omega, the beginning and the end. He knows why He let it happen.
Father please comfort his family."
"Each time we lose someone this young, we can't help but ask ourselves WHY...But you alone Lord knows the answer to this question.You best know why you called James home this young and so i pray you to please grant his family and freinds the strength they need as they continue life without their son/brother/friend till we meet again...RIP James"
"It is well with your soul James. Words can not wield the matter. The vacuum you have left is so wide, i pray God gives family and love ones the strength to bear this. It is well bro, go yee well and rest in the Lords bosom. You will be dearly missed forever. ADIEU James."
"I had a funny dream that night, it was morning and I was about to step out, then a might rain started, it rained that morning and there was such a great thunderstorm that I wondered if the skies will ever relent, then suddenly a gentle breeze swept across, forcing even the tress to bow gracefully in allegiance to the apparition of a magnificent rainbow. I sought solace from the apparition of the rainbow and took a sigh of relief as if all was well but........ .We were together on Christmas eve and so I took the news for a Mistake at first. Dude you bloomed into life like the Lilly of the valley, full of energy and bursting with confidence, a really fine fellow you were. Were I vested with the rare verbiage if Mighty Shakespeare, were Tennyson's lot at Virgil's passing my property, oh that I were gifted with David's magic touch at the harp or Achebe's graphic mind, that I should put a noble seal of honor upon thine name. Gone too soon but never will be forgotten. Adieu bro. JE"
"God be with you till we meet again;
By his counsels guide, uphold you;
With his sheep securely fold you.
God be with you till we meet again.
Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus' feet,
Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.
2. God be with you till we meet again;
When life's perils thick confound you,
Put his arms unfailing round you.
God be with you till we meet again.
3. God be with you till we meet again;
Keep love's banner floating o'er you;
Smite death's threat'ning wave before you.
God be with you till we meet again.
God bless you."
"Forever in my heart: My Big Brother, My best friend, My confident, My Family, Blood of my blood, flesh of my flesh,My one and only Etamebong. Its a pain I cannot describe, but it hurts deeply like once before. I pray you find peace with the Lord"
"Jamsie as we (Kabit and I) fondly called you .. And I still get the chuckles of your laughter everytime I call you that. It was worth knowing you and being your friend. Even apart we were close in our own way. Thank you for being the friend you were to me despite how difficult I can be. Kabit and I miss you our darling Jamsie and we will always have your memories with us. Stay in my almighty fathers bossom and we will soon meet again to part no more. RIP Jamsie."
Still so hard to come to terms with your departure. May you rest in peace. Your memory lives on. Your good work lives on. your courage and efforts of being better and better is an inspires to us. Adieu bro. It's so sad. we give God the glory for your time on earth."
"Merde! Its hard to believe. I'm convinced the Lord will receive you for inspiring thousands of young people with your drive, ambition and desire to get the best things of life."
"I don't even know how to start this brother... We all come from a little town off the coast of Cameroon and the Lord knows best the great plans we all have for our nation. Time and goals took us all apart to different parts of this world but yet the brotherhood from our childhood still shines bright among us all. I think my biggest regret is not having the chance to share recent memories with you and all of our other brothers as we are all so far away but I know you remained a beaming figure among us and all your pictures of home kept that smile in all of our faces. It's sad your chapter comes to such an abrupt end but I know this was all the plan of our Lord and we have no control over it. You were a great soul while you lived on this earth so I'm not bothered anymore as I know you only got greater in the other life. Rest in peace brother!"
"Jimmy Cater, you were young yet so vibrant and determined. You were simply a mentor to many and your memories will never fade. I know it hurts but smile on my dear for you just went ahead of us all. Nothing much can be said but to say sleep beautifully in the lord and may Lombe, mum and dad be at peace I pray. AMEN"
"I am not skilled to understand what God has willed nor planned,though life seems to be a truism of happiness being an occasional episode in the general drama of pain.That life seems more of a juxtaposition and reversal of roles.For Christ sake!!!!Do parents now bury their children???Ino (Enoh),my babajaro of all times,your death brings uncountable scenes of thoughts n fear in my mind and then am forced to text Lombe on daily bases,asking rhetorical questions!!!You replicated a duty conscious child,who always remembered and appreciated every little gesture that someone had showed you at any stage in life and you never forgot where you came from and always worked extremely hard to make tomorrow a better one.Your passing away has made me have a multiple view of life and the prints of positivity you left in me are so deeply buried that,it surely will take a life time to wipe you off my memory.If I was asked to make a wish,I certainly would have asked God to give you a second life.My heart is heavy,I am saddened but I am appeased coz my God, never fails. Even in death,we still love you.RIP,lil bro!!!!!"
"I just cry cry cry cry James. Yes i like to cry. When i feel helpless i just cry!! So you really insisted we must see Dec.24th 2015 and then that was it???? I am so sorry i didn't dedicate enough time that afternoon to hang out with u. Only God knows why i was rushing to soppo. My heart aches,people will say let us celebrate you for your cool bright self but you have become an angel now and u see us here on earth,will i just celebrate you without feeling pain? It is hard James,so hard for me. Not everyone will understand how u became my friend but i have sooo much love and respect for you in my heart. I am just here rambling to join in the support and send you home on this page,but i am in sooo much pain,we were just beginning to plan the fun....and now i am stuck in the middle of our convo... ah ah God ohh. I wish my mother can send u back,chaiiii James. But pls,relax,rest,be as cool an angel as u were a cool dude. I will never ever ever forget u. I will always cherish u. Be warm and stay peaceful in ur rest dear. Good bye."
"James, i still look at my snapchat hoping to see @etambong with driving n signing snaps.so full of life and very determine, all we have are the good memories from our university A1 days to our hustling in Douala, you left us so soon but God knows best. May you find rest in his side. Forever in my heart. RIP James"
"James are you truly gone? ?? I've made it a habit to go to your timeline hoping that it'll be a horrible dream..Death has stolen you James, from all those who hold you dear..But even in death I will never forget you and your energy and love for hard work...I cry and then I smile remembering who you were....I pray God sends His Holy spirit to comfort your family as this must be a painful and trying time for them..Rest in Peace James..Adieu."
"You were a good person...you will be missed by all of us ....Rest in Peace my dear brother."
"ever since i got the news it has been series of flashes. reconnecting with you after several years and even talking with you on the 25th was a nightmare to me getting that news on the 26th but know you are loved. i still remember your encouragements in never to give up on ones dream but to work harder.......... RIP dear friend"
"It hurts to see a young person bow so soon!!! Our good Lord please have mercy on him... Rest in peace my dear"
"Mon frere... le tour ci est trop fort.i still find it very dfc to digest my friend "so true true u don go?". Ooh may ur gentle soul RIP. God bless"
"From the first day you walked into that office (Acmar Partners) as it was then. You told me"Esai, there is prospects here and we shall make it work". We ( with Ralph ) sat on that conference table and made plans of taking an apartment together so we could start off life in Douala.
We used to call each other "My man" whenever u were about to tease me, and the laughs that will follow from you were priceless. You made me see a whole new dimension of determination,and i will for ever cherish that. If only cry be fit bring u back...... RIP bro"
"I am still in shock brother.....Your passing has been one of those major things that happen in your lifetime and give you cause to examine your life....though we have lost you brother,the Lord Jesus alone knows why he took you away from this world so soon.Thank you for being you when you Lived....R.I.P till we meet again on the other side"
"I cannot even imagine you are gone. So young, full of life, ambitious, good hearted, jovial, smiling always yet life is taken away from you. Rest in peace my fellow Soban friend. We would surely meet in another life. We would miss you indeed."
"Though so black, you brought light, wisdom, ambition, generosity, joy & laughter to all. That's the memories I keep of you for the 17years I've known you. I trust as we spoke, you made your peace, so rest well now Niggi,BlackJames, EEEEnoh James, Jimmy, above all my Gunner partner.

"Your passing has been such a wake up call. We will make it count- we will draw nearer to God and your family will find peace. We love you even in death and will celebrate you."
"James i knew you for a short while during ma last year in the university of Buea and am still shocked about your death. You were so full of life and ambitions.May your soul rest in peace and i pray the good Lord console and comfort your family."
"James, am I really writing this for u? I have lost people in this life before, but this hurts in a different kind of way. I still hope u will answer my messages and tell me it's all a mix up. U were close to everyone of ur friends. Me I don't know what am writing here. Its all so crazy. My dearest dearest, may God reward up for the many souls ur death as won. Heyy, James.

"I will light a candle ,lay a flower and leave a note for u. Farewell James ..God bless!!"
"James James James how many times have I called,your passing brought back so many heart wrenching memories for me, and to think that I had a fleeting thought of you on that 26th not knowing that was your own way of saying good bye,there are many questions to ask and why! But I know better than to question God! I know you have journeyed to a better place. Please say hi to my beloved brothers Didi and Onga , we lost u all here on earth but we gained wonderful Guardian angels above !!! RIP my dear friend !!"
"my Sokolo broda ,its hard to belief you are no more, you contributed a lot to my child hood memories which i will never forget, you leaving so soon can only be better explain by the almighty, RIP my bro"
""As the Heavens are higher than the earth, so are his thoughts above our thoughts and his ways above our ways" My brother James, know I haven't seen you in years!! But the little moments I spent with you during our childhood growing up and the few years in Birocol depicts how brave and great of a person you where going to become. I remember how we used to play at your house as kids and eating Jelof Rice with oil all over our cloths. My brother, words cannot express how I miss you. I know you are in a better place smiling and watching over us. Until we meet again bro!! Rest in Peace in the Lord. God know best. With love my brother !!!!!! Bye and see you on the other side!!!!"

"I've felt the worst pain since your passing, I've asked God every imaginary questions, I shed the mosts tears but at the end of the day God's will can only be accented. James thank you for leaving me behind with fun memories of you that will take me a life time.surprisingly I'm happy that your death has won souls for Jesus. It just hurts me that I will never see you again, but at the same time you deserve to be in a sinless place. Continue to impact the people in heaven. Its their turn to Enjoy.I love and will miss you for a long time , till we meet to part no more.sooo hard to say Good bye."

On behalf of your ROGAN KING’s family and friends, especially Rogan’s 98, I say goodbye. On behalf of ROGAN’s 98 and friends, Black, James, I say we love you, we love you, we love you.
Death - the last voyage, the longest and the best……RIP brother"
"Big J. Hard to believe I am writing this for you. In my mind you are still very much alive, and won't be forgotten. My memories are still very fresh, esp that my 'hat' you promised me. Will be patient even to the next life. I pray for your rest. May it be peaceful. May God Bless your soul!"
"I remember my sit down with you after the thanksgiving party thrown by the Enemes in December 2013. You told me a lot of things that I took on board and which modelled my reasoning. You have always been a hard working gentleman from our secondary school days. Your picture now brings flashes of those memories to life and remains a vivid reminder of what could happen to us any time, any day. I didn't know Lombe was your sister until you passed. What a life. You went too soon James. Lay down gentle brother and pilgrim. We loved you but Jesus loves you best.
Fare thee well
James Enoh Etamebong"
"Only God knows why He called u back to His side James. It hurts soo much i will not hear your voice again. Small daddy you are the perfect angel and i know u are watching over us. Rest well til we meet to part no more. I miss u Enoh, ur absence will be greatly felt. RIP dear."
"God has a plan for us all,James you brough light,you shared light.I pray you walk in the light!Travel safe lil man!"
"Weah i cant believe this page if for you.....Late Enoh James Etamebong....GONE.....WAS.....RIP......Words i hate to see and hear...
everyone is refering to you in the past....no mind you
If indeed my Good Lord Almighty, is the creator or heaven and earth and all its beings including you....Then i know he took you at his own appointed time.
And by faith i beg for the forgiveness of your sins while you lived and the gentle repose of your soul to Rest in GOD's better bossom.....Bizou"
"Wehhh massa!!! I can still remember 2011 when I came to your office in Douala and through out our discussion, you talked about how you do not like mediocrity. It was always about your job and how you need to move forward. Am just sitting here and thinking of all of your ambitions, all of your dreams, all of your enthusiasm and zeal... Am trying not to ask 'WHY' cos I believe God's plans are better. I pray that your mother, your sister Lombe and the rest of the people who hold you close to their hearts will find peace. I will definitely miss our whatsapp fights.
Sleep on James."
"Enoh as we fondly called you, May Your Soul Rest In Perfect Peace Bro, you were like an elder brother to me, i can't stop forgetting all our memories in Denver. Its so sad, that you had to leave so early, without a goodbye word to Lombe, Daddy, Ebane, Mummy and Co. Please dont forget to watch after them in your new world. Adieu Bros, you'll forever be miss"
"Hi James,we didnt particularly hangout neither where we close friends.I just have been frozen since i learnt of your passing on. Part because of the circumstances, and also because of your sister Lombe who is my good friend. It was only after passing, that i realised we had many more even in common. Brother, I pray that God's perpetual light rests on you. You were a soldier and highly opinionated gentleman.Your legacy will live on. RIP"
"James, its so hard to accept that you are gone. I hope you are sleeping in peace. May the good lord forgive any sins you committed while on earth and welcome you into his kingdom. RIP"
Have a suggestion for us?
