"Our husband, brother, uncle, son-in-law, and beloved son is no longer in our presence. We shall never stop asking why. We know our God always answer the why questions, nothing happens without God's approval. He loves them more than us. They are by his side rejoicing with the angels. Where are they now? There is no worry, no pain, no ups and downs from the family members. They are waiting for the day that you shall join then to part no more."

"Ngia Paddy!! I can't believe you and Nde have been gone for two years! It's like yesterday! We sorely miss you and your absence has left such a void. We believe God had a better task for you and hope you are resting in his bosom with the choirs of Heaven. Adieu brother!"

"On that fateful day April 18, 2014
Perhaps you were shocked and mourned with us.
Or sat quietly on a chair.
Perhaps you prayed or sent a funeral spray.
If so, we felt and saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words,
As any friend could say.
Perhaps you were not there at all,
Just thought of us on that fateful day April 18, 2014.
Whatever you did to console our hearts,
    We thank you so very much.
             Whatever the part.
         Our Love & Gratitude.

Khien, Chi(RIP), Fru, Nche, Anye


En ce jour fatidique 18, Avril 2014
Peut-être vous ont été choqués et pleuré avec nous.
Ou assis tranquillement sur un fauteuil

Dans l'affirmative, nous avons senti et il y virent.
Peut-être vous avez prononcé les mots plus aimables
Common n'importe quel (quelle) ami(e) pourrait dire.

"Big brother Chi and our son NdahNde.
You are gone from us but never forgotten.

I may be depressed or cheerful, it makes no difference.
So long!! ( RIP)
You are always in my mind and prayers."

"Well, it took me all but a few days shy of one year to muster the courage to pen down these few words.  Almost a year has gone by and we still feel the emptiness of your abrupt exit from the stage of life.  You did so much with so little for so many it is just amazing when one stops to think of how much you were able to accomplish while you were on the stage.  I will never forget all the times I spent at your house in Douala en route to school in Nigeria.  I will never forget how you were always there to drop me off or receive me at the airport in Douala.  All the words of encouragement you gave me each time I was on my way to school.  I now know that, it was not just me for, you inspired so many by your words of encouragement and achievements.  What more can one ask for from an uncle?  Even now one year later as I write I still can’t gather myself enough to weave my feelings into words.  We all love you, but God loves you more.  We hope that you are preparing a place for us wherever you are.  That place to call home for eternity when we finally meet to part no more."

"Wow i can't believe you are really gone Uncle Patrick. this can't be true. It was just 3-4 years ago that i made Cameroon my new home and even though it was the first time i met you and first time you met me immediately i saw you we clicked. if i was hungry you would feed me until i was full. when i was sick you would come down to Buea to visit me. i bearly went to Douala because of my health conditions but that one time i did go it was the best just hanging out with you and family. Coming to Cameroon you were the first one there at the airport waiting for me. Leaving Cameroon you were there to which me fare well little did i know it was going to be the last one. i really miss you uncle. As for you NDah-Nde little bro why why you couldn't just wait for me to come back to Cameroon so we can hang out again and you take me around you whole ca-tear. as i sit here and type tears storm down my Eye. i got only thank God that Fru Boy and Mon where ok. Thank you Ndah-Nde and Uncle Patrick for everything you have done for me and for excepting me when i came to Cameroon. You are in a better place now enjoy. See you later guys. Till we meet again.

"Uncle Patrick, I have tried to pretend like I did not hear this news, thinking that someone would just ring me and tell me it is not true, but I have come to accept it. I will never forget the family celebrations at your residence in Douala. I am hurting so bad, but I know our Lord God knows why. I belief you and Ndeh will find a resting place in Christ. Amen!!"

"Ngia Paddy, Ndahnde, father and son, farewell. I cannot hold back the tears being alone in this living room. Now through imagination, all I can see is  both of you being lowered in your graves.
How will my first visit home after all this drama be? Who will pick me up at the airport? Why Why why? Because we are Christians, I will stop questioning and Thank Jehovah for live and for death. Go in peace and of course RIP.
Your wife, sister in-law and daughter

"Great was my shock to hear the devastating news of your tragic deaths! It is so sad that you and Ndah Ndeh were snatched away at the prime of your lives!! No words could ever express the sorrow and emptiness I feel in my heart. The angels took you both away, much sooner than I had expected. I'll forever cherish the moments I held you and your sister Theresa in my arms as her babysitter. It just seems like yesterday when we discussed at length in Yaounde. Little did I know that would be our last meeting. One thing I know for sure is that you will always be remembered for your positive attitude, your compassion and generosity. These memories ,we hold dear in our hearts where they will live forever. A thousand tears would not bring you both back. I know for sure because I have cried but the pain remains. May your loving souls rest in perfect peace till we meet again to part no more.
I love you always,
Mama Wara."

"my beloved cousin Ndah Nde this is like a dream to me.You left at such a young age i can sit the whole day or the next years pondering on why you left us so early but i wont get the answer so i will conclude God loves you more than we do. And i remember clearly how we chatted a few days before your death with you requesting a favor from me but i responded telling you not to disturb me .Not knowing that you were going to take my words seriously and stop disturbing me forever.my dear brother you will live on in our hearts for ever may your soul rest in peace."

"dear uncle i can't believe u are gone forever. i write you with so much sorrow in my heart because i remember how whenever we meet you punch me asking me why i cant reach out to you? or have you offended me? and only you could do that because you where very loving and caring.But i took these questions for granted not knowing that one day you will leave for your eternal home without me ever calling to say hi or goodbye.Dear uncle you will remain in our hearts forever."

""Uncle Paddy, It's hard to believed that we will never see you again. I met you at camp yabassi on Thursday 17th and we  discussed at length and ended  that we were going to meet in Bamenda on Monday to drop the kids at school, Little did i know that was the last time i was going to see you again. Why has this happen to you, You were the one giving us driving attics in Akongnu Mankon on how to drive on the highway, And the same highway has taken you away from us, what a melancholy, To every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven, A time to born and a time to die, A time to weep and a time to laugh, A time to mourn and a time to dance, All shall go unto one place, all are of the dust, and all shall return unto dust again. We love you so much but God loves you most  May you and Ndahnde's soul rest in perfect peace till we meet some day.

""My father, my all I cannot stop crying and my heart is racing. When our dear father left us in 2009 you said "Max stop crying I am here for you all..." now I will be looking at your picture and the echo of your calm and encouraging words of wisdom and the countless lessons you gave me. What can I say about my baby brother whom I thought he will be taking me places when I come home...Why? I taught grandpa closed this deal of accidents. Uncle you left me in the middle of nowhere, our unfinished  projects uncle, how can I pull through, who will pick me up at the airport and go through customs and check me in when I am returning, uncle you did all these for me, you made sure I was safe and you will not let me drive and  I will say "yes uncle you are the highway police..." Uncle I had a surprise for you this Christmas, we talked about it but you did not know what it was. I said wait you will see it..., what do you want me to do. I have to many unanswered questions, too soon papa and I am confused on what to say about my baby brother. I am angry and still speechless, now I fell the pain writer Horatio Spafford went through with the passing of his family. I wonder how will that picture of two casket laid at home...REALLY

"Uncle Patrick,
I met you for the first time 5 years ago during the occasion celebrating my traditional wedding in 2009 and when I spoke with you I immediately noticed we shared a lot in common, besides my wife speaking fondly of you . I learned you were a Chemical Engineer, just like me. We talked about the field of engineering in Cameroon and the prospects of moving back and the challenges. I still remember you words of inspiration and wisdom. I planned to meet with you the next time I visited Cameroon to continue our discussion.

A moment like this questions our understanding of the purpose and frailty of life. I know you are leaving the world a better place. We will miss you very much but there is no question in my mind you are seating next to the one who sent you. Your memories will stay with us forever and you will never be forgotten.  I’m glad I had the opportunity to meet and get to know you in 2009.

Fidelis N Ndingwan"

"Uncle Kims,
I am still in a trance when I think about you being a memory now. I looked forward to visiting you soon and talking about the good old days, when I was young and my family made short weekend trips to Douala and we visited you. I always remember my older siblings fighting over a toy and you asking them which of them won and I came out as the winner. Little did I know the significance of what I said that day. I was only about 6 or 7 years old. Time went by and we would briefly meet when you made trips to Yaoundé. However, you and I only got to see again at my traditional wedding in 2009 as a young lady. You met my husband and it was truly a wonderful experience as always. We celebrated and took memorable photos but little did I know that would be the last time we would see each other again. You were always the “cool” uncle and even cooler because you were the only uncle we were allowed to call by an alias. I never got to meet your son either and hoped one day to meet the whole family. However, you were on the roll for that day that you departed and you and Nde answered the call and went up yonder. I will always remember you fondly. Rest peacefully.

"Tribute from Afuh-ntaw Awasom

What a way to exit this world? But do we have any control? Only God does and knows how. At this very difficult moment for the family, I pray that God provides wisdom, comfort and strength that only him OUR FATHER Can provide.
Ngia Patrick, when I got the phone call about your untimely death through a ghastly motor accident, I was filled with rabid rage. Instead of accepting it, I was looking to apportion blame to sooth my anger, frustration  and despair. Rage at a country that has death traps as roads, drivers that speed as if they are on express mission to hell.  Looking to apportion blames will not bring you and our son back to life here on earth.
I now choose to celebrate your life and look back at the memorable times we had and the great plans and encouragement that you gave us all your junior ones. I remember the last time we met at the airport and you told me "go get the education and exposure and come back so that we can develop our country and village. Since then I have been trying to get the exposure and acquire what it takes to come home and continue our projects. We kept in touch regularly via email and you gave continuously of your time and advice on agricultural projects,  real estate development and more, Thank you for all the advise and inside knowledge about Macuda and general business stuff on the home front. You shared so much with whoever wanted to know. Thank you for being there for us as a big brother as it seldom occurs to me that we are in-laws for I have known you from way back. You have done your part and fought the good fight. The Lord wants you by his side to rest and continue interceding for us from beyond. Thank you for giving so much of your self to your family, your community and your country. We mourn your transition to glory but rejoice in the opportunity we had to spend with you on earth. You have impacted so many lives and truly it is not so much the length of time you stay on earth but the lives you touch and impact positively. We will treasure your memories for a longtime and may God welcome you and our son into his heavenly kingdom.

Adieu Ngia Patrick

Sincere condolences from our family to yours."

This tribute was added by Debbie Neighbor on 29th April 2014

"My condolences go out to the Kimbeng family. From reading about Patrick and Ndah Nde I know they are missed and loved by many.  So sad to hear about this tragedy.  No matter what, it can truly be said that death is an enemy and soon it will be brought to nothing (1Cor. 15:26).  I have found much comfort in the Bibles promise of a resurrection hope of our loved ones at John 5:28, 29 and hope you will too.  Death was never a part of Gods original purpose, in fact he yearns to soon bring an end to it and the suffering it causes your family and friends.  Revelation 21:4 states: "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."  I did not know Patrick or Ndah Nde but I read the obituary and I hope these scriptures will help to bring some comfort knowing that others care.  If you would like to learn more about the Bibles promises and the hope it brings please visit jw.org.

"Ngia Patrick! I have been in denial since I heard about your death on Good Friday. But from the many phone calls to home, I have come to accept that truly you and Nde have left us in a flash. I still remember very vividly our last meeting on January 5, 2014 in the house at Ntambeng. That conversation keeps playing itself and this will stay with me forvever. May the Good Lord grant you eternal rest in His Kingdom and give the rest of the family courage to accept His will. Go well brother!

"Uncle Patrick , the messages I saw on my  phone at 01:00am on that Blessed day were like " April Fool' messages. Uncle Patrick your sudden death made me go insane for five minutes.It was hard to believe  it because I talked with you, I laughed with you, I joked with you a month ago when I came back home to bury Teh Fobiwe.
Uncle Patrick have you forgotten we agreed to be in constant communication ? Instead you have left my eyes in constant tears.
I was a target of your kindness and generosity. I will never forget the fond memories and forever I will miss you .
May your soul and Ndah Nde rest in perfect peace. Adieu!!!!"

Nda'a nde Nkimbeng, i know that you are a family ambassador now between us and our ancestors. The $1 million question is, "WHY" but i know GOD knows why and has a reason for it.
We shall meet again some day daddy and son!"

"LES ADIEUX AU PATRON
Boss « Pa’a » nous vous appelions ainsi ; vous étiez non seulement un patron  pour nous mais aussi un papa. Malgré les pensées des uns et autres vis-à-vis de vous, vous étiez un homme bienfaisant qui a toujours su soutenir les jeunes par tes précieux conseils et bien plus en facilitant leur insertion dans le milieu professionnel.
La mort, comme elle peut être douloureuse  et dévastatrice ; elle vous prend au moment ou l’on l’attend le moins ; mais telle est le chemin de chacun. Vous vous en allez Boss en laissant un grand vide parmi nous et une profonde douleur dans nos cœurs. C’est grâce à des personnes comme vous que nous continuerons à avancer dans la vie.
Nos pensées et prières vous accompagnent car vous resterez a jamais gravé dans nos mémoires.

"Boss, Patron, Uncle, it was only after three days that I could really accept that the cold hands of death took you away from me. I could never stay for an hour without receiving a phone call from you and hardly ever a day passed on without me sitting before you for business, charts and instructions. God has always disposed and loves his best seeds more than humanity. That unfortunate day, you and I worked together as usual, joked, and laughed when finally you told me that you have to embark on a journey which became your final journey. Your last instructions two hours before dying are still talking to me. You have never ever for more than eleven years we worked together allow me to lose focus on work. You coached me which enabled me to maturity. I know you are gone but your words and actions are engraved in my mind. You can only be compared to St Joseph the worker because all through your matured life, you worked and still died working. Though you are gone, what you and I built will still continue forward. Your untimely departure will never discourage me. You have simply gone to prepare a nice place for us and I know you will continue to guide me.
         Good bye DOULMAN!!! Your colleague, Nephew, NDE Peter Nkwenti"

"Paddy it has taken me a lot of guts and time to come to the decision of making a comment about your glorious exit firstly because I am still in total denial and secondly because this will only indicate that I am accepting the fact that you are gone. I am quick at making comments on issues but this is the one time that I have not been able to measure my strength of accepting tragedy. Ndeh and his siblings usually spent time with me at the Mankon workshop every summer and I remember you sharing the wonderful experience it brought to your home. You told me how Ndeh and the rest lined up every evening dancing until you tso'o them to dismiss the dance.
Paddy where do I start is it with Akongnu and how you gave birth to our "mutual assistance fund" our internal insurance so that our money could be recycled at the end of each year than sink. You always had this microscopic view on issues at meetings while we approached them superficially. Those your lofty ideas, what happens to your guava farm at Ndzong, the charcoal pots and chimneys?
I can go on and on. Naturally you are a very careful person but death is the one thing we can never be too careful, more because it is the will of God and when he knocks, we don't even have time to pick our bags since we will not be needing them way across the blues skies. Adieu Paddy. May your gentle soul and that of our dear son rest in perfect peace."

"This is a tribute from wife and mother, Solange Kimbeng

My darling husband, my older brother, my friend, my hero, my advocate, and my companion, it pains me a lot to know you are no more. To say goodbye to a treasure like you, will not be something in a rush. Paddy you changed my status from a Miss to a respectable Mrs. Kimbeng. You made me feel the joy of motherhood with arrival of our first son. You have died and left me here to think about it. For my sake and that of our children turn again to life and smile. My hero you were a fountain of general knowledge and I consulted you whenever  necessary and you were always there for me. If I could not find an immediate answer to a problem, you made sure you found one instantly or later on. Thank you dear for being such a loving and caring father to me and my children and I will miss you so much.

For my son, thank you for being such a wonderful child and friend to me. Because of your arrival to this world, I was upgraded to the status of “mummy”. Thank you my son for choosing me as a medium through which you came into this world. Even though the time spent with you was short lived, I will be forever grateful to God to have been your mother. I will always cherish the moments we spent together and will take this memories with me to my grave. While I stay behind to mourn you both I wish you everlasting rest in eternity as you resurrect with Christ on Easter. I love and miss you guys. Adieu

"This is a tribute from the son, Mbah Chi

William Shakespeare, a famous British playwright once said “Some people are born great, others achieve greatness in their lifetime and others have  trusted in the then, so do not be afraid of greatness”. Dad you achieved greatness during your stay on earth. Being a father, a best friend and a role model to me it is going to be a little difficult but you did your part and it is now up to me.

I am forever grateful for all you have done for me. Your leaving us suddenly means God almighty has bigger plans for you. I wish R.I.P meant “Return If  Possible” but the reality is that it means “Rest in Peace”, so may your souls rest in peace.

“Presi”, I really don’t know how to pay my respects to somebody who barely lived his life. However, for the short period here on earth, you were a little brother and a very good friend to me and so many others. I know God has better plans for you and Dad so all I can say is goodbye. You both have created a HOLE in my heart that will be difficult to fill. I will hold on to all the memories we had together. These are my final words of farewell, I will miss you both.

"This is tribute from the children

Daddy having to say good bye to you like this is not exactly what we had in mind.  However,  we are certain that you guys are in a better place. It is rather unfortunate that we have to part ways so soon. We will do our best to make you a proud father and will forever hold on to the good times we had together. You will be greatly missed.
“Presi”, you were our brother, friend and playmate. You were there for us when we needed you and even when we didn’t want you, you insisted on helping. Though it is so soon we know God almighty has bigger plans for you.You will always be close to our hearts and may your souls rest in perfect peace. We love and miss you all.
From
kimbeng Christian, kimbeng Darell,
kimbeng Joyce and kimbeng Elvira."

"When I heard of Mr Patrick"s sudden death, from this our temporal world, I immediately remembered my younger brother who passed away 3 years ago and left behind his wife and 3 little boys. We will find it hard to believe he is gone but :
   -We thank God for his life
   -We thank God for all the advise he gave us all
   -We thank God that those who sleep in him are merely transitioning   to glory
   -We thank God he gave uncle Patrick to us and the promise of reunion in heaven because of his sacrifice of Christ.

We pray that God should give us the strength to over come this storm"

"I am so sorry to hear of this loss. Your brother Fru is my good friend. Though I never met you, I am sad for this great loss. May God have mercy. May God console your loved ones you left behind. Your son, you have with you right now. May God hold you and him tight. I cry for the family I so love. God be with you always."

"Ngia, Patrick, Ngia Patrick,
Where are you? Where is junior? When I learnt of your transition to the Lord, it came like a bombshell to me. I knew you far back in Sacred Heart in 1972 when you were in Form Four and I was in form Two. I used to see you standing with your visible carve legs at the other end of the Sacred Heart College auditorium, reserved for the senior Form Four students. You were tall and imposing in my eyes, and singing away in preparation for the Sunday mass. Later on, the travails of life separated us as we took different trajectories to make ends meet until we were finally cemented again more solidly, not just as brothers, but as in-laws. I am therefore mourning you as my brother and my in-law.

I last saw you in Douala, three or four years ago at Banaberri at the achu joint of one Mankon lady and we charted heartily and you told me interesting things about your new job as a consultant to CEMENCAM and other enterprises. As usual, you were warm, fraternal, loving and concerned about every detail of what I told you, and wished me well and all you could. What a nice ngia, friend, and brother you were.

We all share the pain of your departure. We cry and lament because of the pain but we praise the Lord for the gift of life and love. The Lord decided to call you during the Easter Season so that together you may resurrect into a new life in heaven. May you rest in the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ. And may junior make an easy entry into the companion of the Angels and Saints of Heaven.
Adieu Ngia Patrick. Adieu!!"

"We are all saddened by the death of Mr. Patrich Chi and Ndah Nde.We know very well that  Ngia Patrick in the prime of his life and Ndah Nde who had his whole life ahead of him that was full of amazing possibilites were not prepared for this. We are deeply hurt, angry and asking why? However, there is something we cannot understand. God loves  and has his own very special plan for them.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Nkimbeng's family."

"I remember vividly, as if it were yesterday when, as a youngster in my second month in this country, I asked the then U-Lowell admission office if there were any Africans in Lowell. Their answer was "not many." As I was hungry for some directions in a "strange land," I met you and visited you a few times at your place of residence in Lowell. Brother Patrick, I saw how hard you worked to get the best out of life and I appreciate a great deal your willingness to give advice to others, so that, LIKE YOU, they may get the best out of life. I still remember your advice to me when I first met you: In this country, you said, if you know where you are going and keep your mind on your goals, chances are you will get there. This advice was quite helpful to me as it led me to where I wanted to go. You will be missed. May you and your son rest in peace! And May God give strength to those you left abruptly behind!"

This world truly is not our home so I can only assure you that you are both in a better place by the side of the resurrected Lord. Earth Has no sorrows that Heaven cannot heal.

"It seemed like just yesterday I was spending vacation in your house in Douala and I was playing soccer with Ndahnde. It seems like just yesterday I was in school with Ndahnde and helping him in school but God has a reason for everything and we must move on.  Life hits you hard sometimes, but its not about how hard you hit back, it's about how hard you can get hit and continue moving forward.

Sometimes we have to experience the bad, so that we can learn to appreciate the good things that enter your life. Uncle Patrick and Ndahnde i really appreciate you both. You will never be forgotten.

"Ngiah Patrick, you shall always be my hero. You mentored me right from the village in Ntambeng and all the way to the USA.  I am a Civil Engineer today because i followed your advise to me 33 years ago when i followed your footsteps to come to the USA. You have been that big brother from another womb who played your part very well. You were never tied of taking my calls and advising me on career, family, immigration and social issues. It has always been comfortable for me to know that you are there and I can turn to you at anytime.  I will miss you greatly. I will continue your legacy of living my life for others whether they are related to me or not. May The Lord comfort the wonderful family you have left behind. Nobody can replace you in my life. With love in Christ,
Dr. Toby Ngwana Awasum, Washington, DC"

"My deepest sympathies to the entire Nkimbeng family for this tragic loss of a great brother, friend, school-mate and much more. Soft spoken and respectable human being of a class of his own. When ever we met, it always started with a big "Laugh" about my naughtiness either because when the headmaster of Ntambeng RCM beat me up, I switched immediately (without informing my parents) to RCM Alamatu i.e I was maliciously (crookery starting at that tender age) attending two Primary Schools at the same time simply to avoid Ticha Ambrose's justified disciplinary Mulongo. God bless your soul Ngia Patrick till we meet again at the other end. I beg, keep me some fine place near you.
Your Brother

"My beloved brother Chi,
I say good bye with tears of sorrow. Just as our departed beloved mother and father 50 years ago, the all knowing God sent you and  NdahNde and called both of you back abruptly. I thank God that you did not suffer for long. God loves you more and I accept His decision. Thank you for calling and talking with me at length at work on April 15th at 9AM 2014 just three days before your sudden death. Our discussion is eternal in my heart and before God and man I promise to carry on our journey as discussed.

Your voice is sustaining me till I meet you someday, somehow, somewhere. Your brief but very accomplished life on earth touched many in various ways.
You have passed on the baton of life to us. I will carry it forth with love and joy. Your children will hear and read about your legacy and be proud and be inspired.

I love you from the bottom of my heart but God loves you more. I pray to God to guide, protect and lead me through the rest of this journey. Till we meet again someday, somehow, somewhere . Adieu big brother!! Farewell!! Filiehfohmbah!!.
Death be not proud. With tears of Love.
Your kid brother Fru Nde Nkimbeng Lowell MA USA"

"I write with tears in my eyes. Since I got the news on Friday, I have not been able to put myself together. Ngia Patrick, Why? Why? You were the perfect brother in-law who replaced my father, calm yet very strict. You called me to talk to me about my health and told me with confidence that I will be alright because the devil is a liar. I believed you. We laughed on the phone and I told you my list of things to do on this earth is very long and you couldn't stop laughing. We laughed together and I didn't know that was it. The laughter was our last connection together, short but sweet.

I called you from work at 5am and the phone kept giving me the French message. Lord I wish I just tried one more time. I gave up Ngia Patrick and missed talking to you for the last time. Now you are no more.....Why? You took Nda Nde with you. The void is huge. Where do we go when we come to Douala? Where do we go when we are leaving for the United States? Oh Death, May your souls rest in perfect peace till we meet someday."
