Memorial Tributes
This tribute was added by Emmanuel Enokpa on 5th March 2016

"Daddy, you lived your life quietly, constructively, kindly, selflessly, passionately, and productively. You did so for 105 years. During this time, you told the truth as you knew it, though some may not have liked that. This is no surprise considering how bitter the truth could be sometimes. That notwithstanding,” the truth is the truth”. Due to your inherent qualities, for example your kindness, some took advantage of you. In those situations, you kept growing stronger socially, financially and in God. This showed your strength because only a man with a backbone will remain as focused as you did through life. You were rarely angry. The very few times I saw you angry were when food was delayed. If you were angry for any other reason, I belief it was too short-lived for me to have noticed. May be one of the secrets to living over 100 years is, worry only over getting your food on time. You never used the words “angry, enemy, hate, wicked etc”. By who you were, I came to understand things like “empty vessels make the loudest noise, because you spoke less and calmly but made the most sense most of the time”, “be your brother’s keeper, because you cared about yours and others”, “ little things matter, because you did little good things everyday”, among an endless list.
You may not have known how much I admired your person, your deeds and the respect you got from your peers. I wish I had told you that in person. I guess you understood that given that just like you, I tried to do only the things that will bring praise to our family and glorify God. You have set the bar high for us, at the same time prepared us to be equal to the task. As you go, know that you will be forever missed and that your work here on earth was done well. I could not have asked for a better father, I could not have asked for a better you. You gave us so much and even in your death you give us reason to celebrate rather than mourn. Your final grade here on earth is an A+. It is time to rest.
Dr. Emmanuel N. Enokpa"

"I didn't know Mr. Enkopa personally, but after reading the obituary, and all the beautiful tributes, I'm sure that he was a beam of loving light to be around. And it's so very, very sad that we have lost such a light in this dark world. The Bible says "the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life" (John 5: 28, 29) and " And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away" (Revelation 21:4). These are words that I hold dear to myself because they tell me that you and I alike have the hope to see those that we have lost to death alive and well. Please let these words being you the comfort and peace that they have brought to me."

"Pa Moses Enokpa will be greatly missed. An Iroko tree has fallen! His quiet sense of humor and words of wisdom are irreplaceable. The one person that knew my father Pa Andrew Enowkpen's heart more than anyone else on this earth was Pa Enokpa - the best bosom friends ever. The two signified what true friendship is all about. Some words of wisdom I gained from Pa Enokpa in regards to friendship were that a true friend is one who will espouse your problems, spend sleepless nights with you, and know when to tell you to let go, and the friend who will trust you enough to drop it all, even if it means starting life or a career all over again - brothers from different parents. In giving the eulogy for his best friend 15 years ago, Pa Moses questioned where he would get another friend like Pa Andrew. They are now together to part no more. What a glorious reunion! RIP."

"Dear Mr Enokpa

You have gone on to be in the arms of the Lord. There you will find an abundance of peace and tranquility. However, in your new abode on the streets of gold. There is great joy.

None of us know of the appointed time. Rest in peace, the gift to a good man whose life begins now. However, many of us are already dead. We only know it when we stop breathing. Victory is yours dear dad, your son in law Kenrick Anderson Jeffers.

!!Oh dad...Please keep the palm wine in the fridge!!"

"I had the opportunity to attend a few family meetings and witnessed Mr. M. Enokpa chair those meetings humbly and sensibly as the family head. He was methodical and unequivocal but at the same time very friendly.

The Lord gave him to us for 105 years and used him to serve his people in the enlarged family, Mamfe and beyond. He fulfilled his mission on earth with compassion and distinction and has transitioned to be with the Lord where he is renewed with strength, where he runs and isn't weary and where he walks in the Lord's kingdom.

On behalf of the Takang-avangaris, we extend our appreciations for all your service and wish you forgiveness and peace.


Ruphous Takang"

"A golden heart stopped beating and hard working hands put to rest. Papa you are near even if I don't see you, I know you are with me.Even if you are far away, you are in my heart, in my thoughts and in my life. I know God put his arms around you and whispered ''come to me''. Thank you for always making me feel welcome. Rest in Peace"

"Pa Enokpa has lived a fulfilled life indeed. It will be difficult for me when I next go to Mamfe, not to stop by the house and check on him. We just have to let you go! I pray  the void your departure will create will be filled by the Spirit of God, Our Comforter and Counselor! Farewell Pa!"

"Pa Enokpa is one of the few elders from Mamfe who lived a decent life, doing what he thought was virtually right, very few people get to expire at your age but because you had a clean slate, you were able to get there. Papa your job on earth is completed and its time for you to join your creator the almighty God. We wish you the best as you continue the journey beyond. Rest in peace Papa."

"He called me his (German woman). He asked me how i was managing in Germany while my husband was in the USA. Papa, my time with you was short but it was full of humor. May you rest in the bosom of the Lord, and let my parents know you left me in good hands.Till we meet to part no more, RIP."
