This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, nde Joe Nkweti, . We will remember him forever.
Thank you for visiting,
Thank you for sharing your memories of him.
"Hi Uncle Joe,
On this anniversary of your passing your adventurous spirit, sharp wit and brilliant sense of humor are sorely missed. We love you Uncle Joe. Rest in eternal peace."
When in my crib I lay,
I saw you each day
You came to stare at my bed
As I slept in innocence stead,
Because you thought I wasn’t looking
You let tears dance down your chin.
As you lifted me to your shoulder,
Daddy I felt your shudder.
When I first began to walk,
You cajoled me with little talk
Then I went off to play
And daddy I saw you that day as
You shivered when I staggered and fell
Your mind was worry hell.
Because you thought I wasn’t looking,
You turned and wept for what the future may bring.
I love and i miss you daddy"
"My dearest brotherly friend,JOE,
Oh my God!We all have to give mighty and unfolding and massive rounds of thanks to the Almighty God for the manifold blessings Has continually bestowed upon us even when He allows one of us and each one of us eventually to enter His much desired KINGDOM beyond.
Oh Joe,in the early sixties we met as young innocent and wonderstruck youngsters catapulted to CPC Bali through the gruesome selection in many primary schools throughout Southern Cameroons.It was a maelstromly wandering life that propelled us through CCAST and to the University of Cameroon,Yaounde and beyond.We bonded through all those years and became brothers concerned about the welfare of each other.You were foremost in caring,asking about,and giving forth the beauty and best of the human spirit to all your friends,strangers and newly discovered friends.Your pilgrim soul took you all over the places you lived in and brought inspiration to...from Edea,and the area of the South West that became your abode until your final journey to the heavenly home we all aspire to undertake.The light-hearted and spirited nature of your persona was a charismatic magnetism that drew many a soul to your presence even at all times.To our chgrin we all mourn and weep for your life was devoid of a length of years....we never got enough of your company ever so jovial,electrifying and constantly magnanimous...You always gave your all to lift up any sagging spirits under all conditions.A great part of us has been wrested from us and all we can do now is to give God deserving thanks and praise for having brought you to our world of despair to play your blessed part.....like you did as Rodeigo in Othello9Shakespeare0.
"it has taken me months to say something to you daddy. You were the best daddy one could ever have. You will never be forgotten because you were one of a kind, smart, always seeking knowledge, an ever constant smile. Daddy i love you"
"Soh, it was midnight Dec. 31, 1979; the place was Buea Mt. Club. Decision: (New Year resolution) No smoking again. Action: You handed your remaining packet of benson & hedges cigarette and lighter to another smoker of the same brand next to you. Remark: Since then till your last breath, you never smoked again. This determined action, to me, was a demonstration of a strong will power. To say the least, that's what you were, besides being an astute and outspoken young man. Soh, you sought to be the best and, you remember, once in Infant
two, our late brother and friend, Prof. F. Ayafor, whom you've gone to meet, took first position in a class examination. You became so vexed that you burst into tears questioning "who was first?" That to me again illustrated your incessant effort to be the best. And, of course, your poetic discussions on Luncheon Date over the National Station of RADIO CAMEROON which were widely acclaimed, again proved you to be excellent in poetry. As concerns other things you and I did, I have never ceased to ask God's forgiveness;
Soh, the above stated are, at this point in time, mere history. As you take the lead, may your soul find rest in the arms of the LORD till my turn comes when I meet again."
"Our elder brother, Nde Joe Soh, was one of those who inspired us in the early sixties. May his soul rest in perfect peace."
"Nde Joe you have gone before the seventy plus ten years God ordained for mankind, so the question is why¬? Why? Why so soon? But this is what the word of God says in Isaiah 57:1-2
“The righteous perish,
and no one ponders it in his heart;
devout men are taken away,
and no one understands
that the righteous are taken away
to be spared from evil.
2 Those who walk uprightly
enter into peace;
they find rest as they lie in death”.
However it not how long we live ,but the life we lived and how much we gave. Nde you live and gave all to all sort of people inside the family and outside, the good ,the bad and the ugly and now you have gone. Nde Joe you survived many deadly arrows of the evil one including ghastly accidents. The good Lord has always delivered you from them all. But if He had to allow this one to take you home, this is my conclusion, that God is good, and God is faithful, to spare you from evil and to let you enter into peace and find rest from this world of tribulations. Nde, you have gone may this teach us to number our days aright, that we may again a heart of wisdom of God in His service and the service of His people. You will always be remembered by all what you did. We love you Uncle Joe but our Father in heaven loved you more, God willing we shall meet again to part no more. Nguhmbi Henry Afaaseh (nephew)"
"Ni Joe, I knew you in the 70s when we were young and lively. We enjoyed life together with your sons.. It has been a long time. Today we know that you are with the lord and that is the only way to go home. We do not mourn your loss,we celebrate your life. But it should not have been like this, We would say the ripest fruits fall first. We cannot question the ways of our God because we would be united under the same banner one day. Don't forget to take your bike."
"nde Joe, Oh nde Joe always with a smile, thank you...
O give thanks unto Jehovah; for He is good; For His loving-kindness endureth for ever.(1 Chronicles 16:34 ASV)
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, 11-14, 22 ASV
"For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
He hath made everything beautiful in its time: also he hath set eternity in their heart, yet so that man cannot find out the work that God hath done from the beginning even to the end. I know that there is nothing better for them, than to rejoice, and to do good so long as they live. And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy good in all his labor, is the gift of God. I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor anything taken from it; and God hath done it, that men should fear before him.
Wherefore I saw that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him back to see what shall be after him?""
