Good men must die, but death cannot kill their names. Mr. Takang KHA was a good man, death will not kill his name.

  RUPHOUS TAKANG: Boston, Massachusetts (USA)

 "...those who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." Isiah 40: 28-31. Mr. Takang KHA waited for the LORD and renewed his life with strength, he has mounted up with wings like eagles, he shall not be weary, he shall walk and not faint in the LORD'S Kingdom.

 If a life is worth living, it's worth remembering. My dad lived a life that is worth remembering. He was born to serve, he died still serving.

 Excepts of Funeral Poems:  I AM ALWAYS WITH YOU

When I am gone, release me, let me go,


I have so many things to see and do

You mustn't tie yourself to me with too many tears.


But be thankful we had so many good years.


I gave you my love, and you can only guess

How much you've given me in happiness.


I thank you for the love that you have shown,

But now it is time I traveled on alone.

Bye  bye  bye byeeeeeeeeeeee     Papa

Veronica Besong Takang: Albany, New York ( USA)


" People do not die for us immediately, but remain bathed in a sort of aura of life which bears no relation to true immortality but through which they continue to occupy our thoughts in the same way as when they were alive. It is as though they were traveling abroad." Marcel Proust

"God saw you were getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, "Come with Me."

With tearful eyes we watched you suffer
And saw you fade away
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating
Hardworking hands to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
     It is well,we miss you so much. RIP Papa. Enow"
