"Happy anniversary my dear mother, sister and friend. I know you are having the best part of your life with your maker but because I still missed you so much I wish you were here with me. I am still praising God and singing hallelujah as you demanded. Your faith and believe in the lord is keeping me stronger and stronger everyday because I want to be also fearless and ready to follow him when he calls just like you. You are now my guiding Angel. Give us and the children the courage and strength to live by your example. May you continue to rest in peace Sweet Queen.....till we meet again to part no more. RIP...RIP"

"Ma you fought the good fight!!  It was a painful surprise, difficult to believe, a real nightmare............three weeks of deep meditation..... flipping through our few pages in the fight........ seem to  bring some kind of acceptance since I crosschecked many times the source of information !  We will never forget the Teze adventures in the land of Technical Hardship....where mountain climbing brought us more joy in the struggle to bring water, sufficient food and comfort .......... development and self reliance.......Ma, I now count myself privileged to have lived the tip of the iceberg you have been, the long hours working into late hours, mountain climbing to worship.......You remain my enigma, role model, a crowd puller with words of wisdom, the mother, ........I am lost with words...... How brief .....that wine that will never fill the glass !! thirst for more and it's gone !....the candle in the wind !!.....and the speed of blazing off........ from the shelter, the umbrella, the staff, the rock on whom hopes could anchor and grow............ Ma, it is painful........Have a soft trip this time  Amen !"

"I have never met you Mrs. Kilo but have had many conversations in my head and with Yaah Dr. Asheri Kilo about you. I marveled about the power of love as you fell in love with your husband and with his daughter Asheri in what looked to us like 'equal' strength. This relationship put in perspective what many without step mothers, step fathers, step siblings, half siblings, etc. can not quite fathom. It displayed the great love your heart held and shared and helped put meaning in some of the situations I have found myself in.

Rest in peace and know that the last time I met Asheri (last week in Cameroon), she was still very much in love with you and her daddy and was devastated at your passing. She pulled out her ipad and shared your pictures with me, commenting as each picture appeared. So love truly never dies.  It must be quite a reunion out there with Auntie Anne and others. Give Auntie Anne my love.

My prayers go to Uncle Greg, Ma and the family, to Ma Christie, Ma Maggie and the other Galabes and entire Kilo family.

"I heard about Mrs. Regina Kilo way long before meeting you (mummy) some few years now. What I learned back then was that, you were one of those few balikumbat ladies who had attained an unthinkable level of education and career achievements. You were inspirational and a role model to aspiring young girls.

After meeting and getting to know you and some of your family members, it was obvious you were the lighthouse and foundation of your family. You carried your brother and sisters under your wings like only a mother/parent is obliged and expected to. You did your 'work' as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunty.............and most of all you were a fervent servant of the Lord.

You had it all, beauty, brain, and a good heart. We shall forever miss your smile and tender voice.
As we bid you farewell, I find solace in John 6:40  "for my father's will is that everyone who looks to the son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day"

Gone but not forgotten, RIP.

"It is really with great sadness that our Mummy is no more. Loosing someone everyone cherished and loved is never easy; and that makes it more difficult when they leave us so soon like Mummy. When leaving the U.S late March of this year, you told me, "Gi, this family is all gone, I want all of you to be your brother's and your sister's keeper, love one another and live in harmony." Little did I know you were also on the way to the world beyond. What an irony! Yes, I will forever adhere to your God's coffee story to live simply as usual, love generously as usual and care deeply. God's golden rule...RIP
To all, please let's not focus on this grief but celebrate Mummy's life as she would have loved it celebrated."

You are truly loved by many and missed by many. May He, the Lord that Heals, grant you eternal rest and peace...

I really didn't spend that much time with u,
But the little time I spend with you was full of love, advise and encouragement.
You emphasised i should always speak my native language (Bali), and never forgot my culture. I'm definitely going to miss u. U might be gone but u will remain forever in our hearts because u gave us soo much to hold on to and remember. Auf weidersehen mama.

"Mah Regina !
It will be a very long time before we can recover from the shock of your sudden but permanent and unannounced departure. Most of us are still very bitter but our feelings as simple mortals not withstanding, we  trust that God who gave you to us  knows best.  We will never hear that soft voice , the sweet laughter, the spirit of sharing, the inspiration to excel and the steely demand to stand up for what is right!
Ah! I could go on as we mourn this monumental loss to the family but we all must remember your last words of wisdom " harbor no anger and above all forgive one another" What shining example of  selfless love? You will Be Sorely Missed. May God grant you endless peace and rest. The peace you worked so hard to sow among us.
We hope to find comfort in your counsel , Fare well in God's Grace!!"

"Ma K i still can't get myself to believe you left us so abruptly. You always made a point to be present at all events and functions. You made enormous sacrifices, was always selfless and full of loving and kind words. I remember the motherly advise you gave me on my wedding day, which to this day, i hold on to it firmly. You will truly be missed and always be remembered in our hearts. May you continue to watch over us all in heaven like you did on earth."

"Shooting Star

She lived her life like a candle in the wind and went home like a shooting Star. Stars shine very brightly only for a moment and when their light is diminished, they go out gracefully. But their passing blesses those who were lucky to have seen them and make wishes we believe will come true.
You were my “Sister Regie” in Buea when I met you and Auntie Kukah before I joined the family and you became my “Mummy Gina” You accepted me into the family the same way you had accepted and mentored me in Buea.  My shinning beautiful star I wonder how your journey through this tumultuous world was? You touched our lives in ways only you could and left in the same gentle way you made your entrance. Did we make you as happy as you made us?   I called you and told you we were doing a chain “Divine Mercy Novena” for you and you will walk again and you thanked me and said you will be fine. Why didn’t you tell me that you won’t so I could come and sit by you? I believe the lights of shooting stars never completely fades so travel safe Mummy and say hi to those you meet at heaven’s gate.

"A tribute to a dear friend.

Regi, the news of your death reached us as an ”April Fool joke.”  The last time we spoke to each other was November 2013 in Dallas..  I left in January to Cameroon and   I did not speak to you again.  I returned to America on 30th May only to hear a week and half that you were gone forever.  It was shocking to me and my family because we never heard you were sick.  You are gone before us but you have left behind memories that will never fade, always smiling and concerned about everybody’s welfare.    

Thank God for the wonderful time we had together as childhood friends which started in Queen of the Rosary College Okoyong Mamfe.   We started working in Buea together but you were lucky to win  a scholarship to further your studies.  When you left you gave me your room and everything that was in it.  I will never forget this kindness you showed me.  After the successful completion of your studies, we met again in Yaounde  working.  We lived as neighbors and friends  at Essos for fours years before you moved to Bamenda.   I will never forget when my daughter Gertrude, your God daughter, was leaving for the U.S A, you offered her $200.00 and that was the only cash she had.  I will never forget this act of kindness at the time I had nothing else to give her.  May the Almighty God bless you and crown you with glory.  May your soul rest in perfect peace.    



                                  Your dear friend

I will cherish the memory of our trip to the airport the day you left Dallas for Cameroon. Thank You for the care and love you bestowed on me and the kids while you were here.

"Tribute from Irene Mbinkar-Gondo

Dear Mummy Regie,

Suddenly  I am lost of words, a talkative like myself.  I want to thank the Lord for your life on earth, for making you the person you have been.  I have never forgotten our days in Buea, when I use to visit you, and how you treated me so kindly.  I still cherish and carry around those fond memories of all the times we spent together.

I pray that all our departed family members welcome you in the Lord’s kingdom, and together you will watch over us, guide us and put us on the right path until we meet again.

C’est avec douleur que je constate que tu a voyagé pour ne plus revenir.  Adieu !!!

Je partage la peine de toute notre famille et ma pensée va tout particulièrement à Bernard, que j'embrasse en lui disant « courage mon frère », nous sommes ensemble.

Mummy Regie, “Go in Peace and Rest in Perfect Peace”.  Amen.

"Tribute to Mrs. Kilo, by Mrs. Johana K. Kilo.

Aaha…Mrs. Kilo, Dear One,
You normally asked me questions when you think things are not going the way you think they should. And I always gave you answers. Now it is my turn to ask you. I hope you give me an answer,  because I cannot take in all that is going on at the moment.
What happened to you?
Before I left Cameroon I asked of you and was told you are not around, only to receive a call from Valerie with a message from Ben to say that mama is in Buea Hospital.  I asked questions and sent back a message, “tell Ben to greet her for me”. The next thing I heard was that she is dead… but in Douala… Can you imagine how I felt? I was tong tight! Were you that sick? Sick enough to die? And to be told that it was leukemia? To me, that is unbelievable, only to find out that it is true. It is true. How could I have known?
Our hope is in the Name of the Lord. He is the maker of us all. So rest your soul in His Hands. Amen.
You were a beautiful being… simply what you were. You did not pick or choose. When invited, you showed up. You interacted with all the children when necessary. You gave out a helping hand when needed. You always called…from Atlanta…from Dallas…wherever and whenever you are in the U.S.A. and so I thought that is where you are, in the USA, especially when I did not see you at 6:00 am daily Mass, daily Mass where we meet every morning and we hug and I would say “aaha Mrs. Kilo” and all you would say in return is “Good Morning INDIA” then we laugh at each other, chat a little and disperse. That was our life. And “Ndia” – Big Sister I was.
Your history with us started when you became Mrs. Kilo and ended as Mrs. Kilo. Thank you very much Regi, Dear one, I love you, and may your soul rest in peace, with Sylvester by your side till we meet again. God Bless you.
“India” – always,
Mrs. Johana Kubong Kilo"

This tribute was added by Bernadette Kilo on 17th June 2014

"March 11, 2014 marked the beginning of your journey to your new home and address. Not without your stopping by in Atlanta to see us and the grand kids. Absolutely certain of your return in May, we suggested you come to Atlanta upon returning but, you insisted now was the time. Handing me a plastic bag with some of your items, you said, “Agyen please put this in my suitcase upstairs. I will get them when I come back”. Had I known that was the last time I will see you, I would have bundled up the kids and made the trip with Ben to the airport. Had I known that was the last time you will sing to Kiki and Semnyong and recite grace before meals with them, I would have hugged you a little longer. So many questions with little to no answers, and so many “had I known” moments which will never come to pass. Mommy, the depth of the void is immense. Of the many things we will miss, your singing uplifted us, always caught Kiki’s attention and put a smile on Semnyong’s face. We will miss you so dearly.
Farewell to thee
Farewell to thee
The winds will carry back my sad refrain
One more embrace before we say goodbye
Until we meet again.

Your loving daughter-in-law,

Agyen Kilo"

"Dear Aunty/Mummy Kilo, I am actually short of words to express how I feel right now since your sudden departure from this world. Ellis Kilo and I were very close and we are like brothers and ever since then you accepted me as you own Son. You welcomed me into your home with open hands. I still remember whenever you are in the U.S visiting, no week will pass by without you calling to greet and check on Paul and I and we will talk at length. I was so touched by your motherly care towards us and I called you “Mummy” whenever I call to check on you. You advised us to be God-fearing in our lives and your favorite Prayer was the “Chaplet of the Divine mercy”. You fondly called me “Pe”. I still remember, in the month of February, few weeks had gone by without you hearing from me, you called and “shouted” at me in a motherly way to ask why I have been so silent. It really touched me and I said” mummy, pls I will make it up” and in your ever smiling face and lovely tone, you said” Pe, never mind I was doing what every mother will do”. (tears tears tears….).
I am consoled by the fact that we chatted at length few days before your departure to Cameroon and that were going to meet soon but little did I know that was my last chat with you. One thing I promise you aunty is to always be there for my brother Ellis Kilo. Mummy Regie, I will forever miss your lovely smile, your calm voice, your motherly touch. Love you so much until we meet again to part no more. Go and prepare a place for us"

"Mumsi, Thank you so much for the privilege you gave me to be there for you before you left for your journey to the world beyond. I did not know that this was quite close.Thanks for the very intimate moments of fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ we shared together.On that fateful Friday you said:" Weh! Joycie, I pity you very much." I asked you why you said so and you said that I had suffered very much for you. I assured you that I counted it all joy to be there for you.You however still made up your mind to go.Mumsi,  I would have still loved to be there for you but you played a hard one on me.In as much as I wanted you to live longer, I equally did not want you to suffer.God ruled this case to your favor.I know that you are in the best place where many desire to go to.I know you are not dead.You have just changed your form from a carnal being to a spiritual person. I saw you several times waving at your angels" My men in white" as you usually called them.You even heard the choir of angels singing ..alleluia and asked that we sing an alleluia song for you. Waving up to  heaven you fell asleep and embarked on your journey with the saints , angels and the Lord Jesus Christ . Good night, Mum,  I'll see you in the morning.You are forever engraved in the tablet of my heart .Your confidant, Joycie        ."

"As I write these words down I still cannot fathom the thought of you being gone. I am trying my hardest to understand how this is possible but no type of conclusion can come to mind. Sometimes I sit down and think to myself is Momina really gone or did I just have some type of weird dream?  Is the woman that has been there since I was a baby before I could even talk gone? The thought is truly unbelievable. Like am I really sitting here writing a eulogy for Momina my Momina?? I recently graduated from high school, you were supposed to be there cheering me on. You always said you are my biggest supporter where am I supposed to get that kind of support now? Since you left I have not been the same, I randomly get sad and start to cry. You were one of my strongest spiritual guiders, and now you’re not here. As you can see I just keep saying that you're gone, I say that because I refuse to say that you are dead. “Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.”–John 11:25. You are not dead Momina, you live! You are just gone. As much of the faith you had, no have! And as much as you believe in Jesus Christ there is no way that you can be dead, even if you died you still live. You live in the hearts of those who loved and cherished you. You live in the memories you made with all the people that you have met, you live in me..You live on Momina. I will not say that you are gone forever because you are not, I will also not say that I will never be able to see you again because when it’s my time to go, by the grace of God and his will I will be able to enter the golden gates of Heaven and see you again standing right there waiting to greet me. So I am not saying goodbye to you Momina instead I am saying see you later because I am sure that will see you later and when I do it will feel like nothing has changed and no time has passed. I will miss you for as long as I live. I love you Momina.

From your beloved Nadi"

"Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee, How great thou art! How great thou art! Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to thee, How great thou art! How great thou art! I still remember the first time I heard you singing this song Mami Na I was so captivated by your voice and spirit with which you sang it with. Oh Mami Na I still can’t believe that you are gone, sometimes I feel as if I am in a terrible dream that I just can’t wake up from. Who am I going to sit and sing hymns with? , Who will I quote bible verses with now ? Who will I have conversations with about our lord and savior Jesus Christ? It was I your little demi who gave you the name Mami Na and since then that was the only name you would answer to when I called. All the memories we shared, all the laughs will forever remain in my heart. I do not ask questions as to why our Lord called you up, but instead I find peace and joy knowing that you are with your creator who you consistently praised and glorified all your days here on earth. Rest In Perfect Peace my sweet, loving, caring, and God-fearing. Mami Na I smile knowing that I have an angel in heaven looking over me.

"My dear mother, for once in my life I am without words. I am still waiting for my alarm clock to go off so I can snap out of this nightmare. It’s been exactly two weeks today since you left me. How is it possible? How could you tell me you’ll see me soon when I saw you off at the airport in Atlanta heading for Dallas? When is soon Mummy? Was that goodbye my darling mother?  I barely gave you a hug as you rushed towards security heading to your terminal. Had I known, oh...  had I known! I would have at least gotten a proper hug and told you how much I loved you and how much you meant to me and my family. What did I miss? Where were the signs? You were so healthy, health conscious and full of life before you left us for Cameroon. Where did everything go wrong Mummy? I wish I were there to take care of you. You've always referred to me as your husband because I was all you had after Daddy passed and I promised to take good care of you as my dad would have done. Unfortunately, I wasn’t there when you needed me the most. I am bawling my eyes out as I pour out my emotions to you my darling mother. No one can fathom the immensity of my loss but me. Mummy, from day one you were everything to me. Where do I start, where do I go from here? What will I tell my boys when they ask of” grandma”? I am speechless, I am lost and heartbroken. I am fully aware we all have to take this journey some day but nothing could’ve ever prepared me for this moment. I hope and pray to God I may one day become half the person you were Mummy. Your presence, your poise, your charisma, your faith and love for humanity epitomized to me, nothing but perfection.   My heart is heavy with grief but I count myself lucky to have known you and been part of your life for over three decades.  You may be gone from this earth but rest assured that your eternal flame will never stop glowing in my heart. As it is written in the Good Book, you have fought the good fight, you have finished the race and you have kept the faith my dear mother. Your work is finished. You’ve done well Mummy! I’m most certain God is smiling as you walk through the pearly gates of His holy kingdom. You have single handedly made us who we are today. I owe my life to you Mother. You have touched so many lives in every way possible during your time on earth. I know my mother is headed straight to heaven without a doubt.  All I can say is THANK YOU Mummy!  Please give a BIG HUG and my love to Daddy SK. I’m at peace knowing that you are reunited with your husband for eternity this time. I love you endlessly my sweet mother and until we meet again to part no more…Rest in perfect peace with the Lord.

Your husband and son,
Bernard Nyuyki Sama Kindzeka Kilo."

"Auntie Regie, You certainly had an impact on a lot of lives as testified by all the heart-warming messages that have lit your candles. Like the late great poet/writer Maya Angelou wrote "Nothing can dim the light that shines from within" and as she expounds further "people will never forget how you made them feel". When I met you and got to know you well when we worked in Bafoussam, Cameroon, there was always that majestic/royal aura about you. No doubt, a princess, beautiful from the outside (always well groomed and mannered) and even more from the inside (a lady, a real mother, a true friend)....sophisticated, yet simple, humble and caring. Talk about that genuine smile, interestingly not just contagious but always inviting and forever endearing. If the criteria for going to Heaven means leaving this world a better place, you certainly did and deserve it, because we all say so in God's name. It was an honor to know you. To my longtime friends the Kilo's, I guess Aristotle meant it when he said "there is a reason for everything (and I add "God-given reason") for everything in life". Accept our condolences and please do take her baton and run with it. Fare thee well Auntie and God bless you and the family and friends you left behind.
Friendly
Dr. Kimbo Edwin"

"My dearest sister, your sudden departure has left a very big void in my heart. Knowing you is to loving you. I am still in a state of stupor and confounded to say the least. But according to Apostle Paul, "To be absent in the body, is to be present with the lord". I know you are in a better place because you were a strong daughter of the most high. I remembered the numerous  conversations we had about matters of faith and I will like to let you know that I am a better Christian today because of those dialogue. I will forever cherish the joy and love you brought into our lives. Your soft spoken words of encouragement will be ever missed. Your contagious smile will always remain in my mind. No amount of words can heal the wounds that your demise has caused. One thing for sure that I learned from you is to hold on to our lord Jesus Christ who gives us strength. Our prayers is that Jesus welcomes you at the gate of heaven and take you to your own mansion that he promised to go ahead and prepare for you. I will dearly miss you but also take comfort that we shall meet again in the house the lord. Rest in perfect peace with the lord."

"I am finished. Where do I start and where do I end with you no more. I know you are now saying, mamie Christie there is no ending, you can only go forward just like you would always say in a loving and caring way.   I am so confused whether to praise God for your life or to question him for you leaving us so soon. But again you taught me to accept every situation in life and trust in the Almighty God because it is his will when things happen that is out of our control.
Ashia oh my dearest mother, sister and best friend you have really done it to me, this time. So you actually thought your work on earth was completed and it is time for you to go back to your creator knowing that you are everything to all of us. How wrong are you mommy. You are the pillar, the sunshine, the peace maker and every ones keeper in this family and the world. I did not worry when you were around because I knew you were there to pick us up when we would fall.  Now let me ask you this because to me you are still very much alive in my heart. Who do I turn to in times of trouble and knowing how to go about making it right so peace can reign again?
You brought so much joy into our lives. I remember every Sunday after church in Atlanta you would begin to sing a song praising God and we would all join in. Everyone enjoyed your singing and we continue to ask for more and you would say “Okay, let us have lunch first and then we will continue.” Then later on you would lead us into praying the rosary and in your own small way you brought us closer to God.  Mami Na you have left a vacuum that I do not know how to fill up, but one thing that I know is that you have always told me to trust in God and at this time that is the only comfort I have. You left a legacy that will reign forever and I wish I could be half the woman you were.
If I am finding it difficult to come to term with you not being around, I wonder how our mother who was so boastful that you will give her a befitting burial will be feeling right now. Oh death, you are a silent thief who steals ones treasure with no sorrow.
My dear sister, I will dearly miss you but I know you are in a better place in the bosom of the Lord… till we meet again."

"As the singers said "golden memories and bitter tears", We shared so many days together. From CDC Tiko,Okoyong ,Oudenbosh and to community developement. Boh, what do i do without you? Our singing, our laughter, our joys and all that we shared. I would never have expected you would go away so soon and especially without saying goodbye."

"Chia mommy, truly truly you are now history.you boldly deceived me promising to be my family sponsor though I have my oyibo mammy the catholic Church gave me, how you will be back to the USA in May for us to celebrate that bold step that was crowned on the Easter vigil mass, how you of all people can't disappoint me, what a long list of promises. None I say none has been met. The MUMBARI FAMILY is asking Y?you were not only an in law to them, but a sister as well. Where ever they are gathered you are always with them.
I know God needs people like you in his kingdom, living us dumbfounded. What else can we do but accept his will . Knowing you was of great teachings in my life:respectful, disciplined, simple, forgiving, PRAYERFUL PRAYERFUL PRAYERFUL,
ADIEU MOMMY KILO."

"Ma Reggie! Oh Ma Reggie!  For ones I do not have something smart to say.
I see your smiling face every day and it is that smile that gives me hope. You took the place of the mother I lost ten years ago and now you have also left me to fend for myself.  What can I say, I feel like I am back to square one without a mother again. You have left me with a lot of lessons to learn.

You gave me advice when I needed one
You listen to me when I needed to vent
You gave me your shoulder when I needed to cry
You taught me to have faith and trust in God
You taught me how to look beautiful at all times (I got my make up on; looking good)

I know that with what I have learnt from you, I will stand tall and make you proud. Just thinking about you will guide me through this journey I am embarking on to be a Lady/Mother/Sister like you. I will always keep you close by me and with your direction; I will leave life according to your standards.

Thank you very much for being the person that you were; A Beautiful Woman Inside Out.
I will MISS you but I know you are in a better place. Keep looking good as always
With lots of love
Bridget Voma-Eyong"

"Dear Mommy Regi,

I am still stunned and saddened by your sudden departure. I have been avoiding the inevitable - saying goodbye to our lovely and dearest mother.  How could this be?  No chance to say goodbye, I have to trust that this is God's will.  How I will miss your beautiful smile, your gentle laugh and your soft voice.  You were as beautiful as they come, I will cherish all the wonderful moments we spent together.  You were truely inspiring, we will miss you dearly.  Farewell Mommy till we meet again.  May your soul rest in peace with the Lord.

"mummy the best, this is a very bad dream.Though i was with you during your brief illness ,i still refuse to accept that you are gone.mum you were the pillar of the family and single handedly  raised me and many others.you thought us what life is all about even as a grown up woman you were still there for me,At this junction were do i stand?on who do i lean?On your sick bed you kept giving me hopes assuring me that all is well and that the lord has done it.,If the lord decided to do it in this very difficult and painful way,all i will have to say is MAY HIS NAME BE GLORIFIED.Mum the vacuum you have left in my life cannot be measured.what a pearl you were,my role model,the real princess
Adieu my soft spoken mum, but one thing i am sure of is that you are seated in heavenly places far above principalities and wickedness.
Your memories will be for ever in my heart until we meet to part no more.

"“Auntie Reggie” – THANK YOU!

Dear, Mommy “Auntie Reggie”,

Thank you for that phone call.  I now understand fully what everything meant; even the unspoken and I want you to know that I am grateful and thankful and accept that you are gone.  I am not going to ask too many questions.  May God’s will be done, not ours.  

When your call came, it was anonymous and contrary to my nature, I picked it. How providential!  In so many ways, that call has helped me to accept your death.  God took over from then on….  Now I understand and all will be well.  Mommy “Auntie Reggie”, may your path to heaven be as peaceful as your life.  

Yaah wo Shusum, would recall how we first met you.  We were happy to have another mommy, especially if it made Daddy happy and if mommy Johana was OK with the whole idea, and she was. You and Daddy gave us our baby brother (BB - as I fondly call Bernard Kilo) and then like a candle in the wind, Daddy was gone- vanished!.  Now you too are gone.  It is OK - We accept God’s will.  You raised BB to be a fine young man.  He now has a wife, and is father to two beautiful sons!

Your job is done and may your path to heaven be straight and your welcome joyful, where Daddy and all the other departed Kilo family angels will be there to welcome you.  

What a peaceful exit!  Fare thee well mommy “Auntie Reggie”, and do not forget to intercede for lasting peace and unity for the Kilo clan.  

Bye-bye. Adieu. Ghan kijung.

With love,

Mariam (MaryAnn) Kilo"

"My Mommy's "Kwakou"
Our second mother
Aunty Regie, Aunty Kwaks...Na wah for you ohhh...ehhhh!!!
I do not remember a time in my life that you were not present with my mom. You always were my mother's shadow, you taught everyone that grew up in our home what having a real friend meant! Having a real friend meant being there through everything, and that's how you two were.I remember all the times we spent together from Bamenda to Bafoussam to Yaounde to Buea. I remember all the countless tears in times of sickness and death,..all the laughter and joy for the many milestones that we celebrated together....you were there from baptism to weddings and everything in between.
Wow Mommy Regie..."Gone too soon" is right! I can not describe the pain of knowing you are not with us anymore. I can still hear my mom's voice in my head now screaming on the phone  " So ehhhh my kwakou don go leave me ohhh...wetie I go do? Regie don leave me!"
They say "don't ask why for only God knows"  So i won't ask why...why you rushed to leave us so soon.
I pray that you are resting in peace for you were such a loving and gentle soul. I will miss you forever!.
My darling Ben....what can I say? We have cried and cried and cried...what can I say? Ashia Papa, take heart!
Sister Joyce and Ellis, take heart...only God can give you the strength you need for right now.
Aunty Christie, Aunty Dodo, Aunty Glo, Aunty Ade, Aunty Asheri and the rest of the family...my deepest deepest condolence to you all at a time like this,...when words fail us."

"My dearest aunty / mummy I am speechless and can't imagine the pain I am feeling inside right now and the layers of heartache.....
You were such a loving , gentle aunty/ mummy who treated everyone with empathy and respect. Ever so soft spoken , I remember the last time I spoke with you and you said " Nah Lau , you know you are our mother, when am I going to see you , it's been sooooo long" I promised I'll see you soon but I finally never got to see you.

God knows why he snatched you off our hands, my heart aches, my heart bleeds.... But he's in control. Mummy Gina you'll be sorely missed. May your gentle soul rest in peace.

Lots of love xxx"

"my  dear sister, mother and  father, words canont express the deep pain  i feel in me.
mummy  my all, i have always found you as a reference and a  security. you also  stood as  refuge and a cover. to whom will i look up to? who is it that can provide that replacement. all the moments we spent inthe hospital  still lie in my memory . My greatest desire has been to relive it again which is categorically impossible. eventhough you were rearly lookong bad, i found it very diifficult to imagine you could depart from us, and so soon.
Mummy thanks for the love you shared with me, my children and grand child. you asked me to sing Alleluluia while you slept off, this song will remain live in my memory and i will always dedicate this to you all the days of my life. you loved and  served God  all through your life, this is a legacy you left  for us and your departure on a friday  has a lot of connotation for on this same, Jesus died on Good Friday.  i know you are in heaven sitted with Jesus at the right hand of God the Father.  thanks once more for the love and sacrifice and for what you did to me. you  were beyond a sister to me- i mean much more than a sister. your affections, the gentle motherly  touch you gave us  makes me owe a lot of respect and honour  for you .   your life on earth was a good example of a  close union with Christ,  please Mum i will like to follow this example. you were a model in my life
you showed me  a lot of love, that is the reason why i had to come down to Douala to share this same love with you and here shockingly you breath your last in my presence, infact you gave me this honour, this i will never forget since then i have never seperated from you for you have always been with me in my dreams.please mum leave your door open so that  you can welcome us in heaven as you welcomed us on earth.
please Mummy build a big Family House there as you did while on earth so that we can join you there one day. you have left a song on my mouth " Alleluiyah  " this song i will continue to sing and dedicate in memory of you.  i will always love you  till we meet you to part nomore.   Rest in the bossom of the Lord
your junior sister but daughter

"My Darling Mummy Gina,
It strains me past the compass of my wits to think that I would never again listen to that soothing voice of yours that reassured me of your unconditional love. I so miss you my mummy , yet comforted by the opportuinty and previlege you gave me to usher you HOME. Your baby is  completely distraught.
May your sweet and gentle soul rest eternally. Your rose petals abound and would continue to radiate and produce your attractive.fragrance  A model of a mother and friend you were.
Yes Mummy, we will forever miss your physical presence for YOU will NEVER DIE so long as your clan continues to bear children.
Sleep, sleep, sleep in PEACE.

"They say "sleep is the cousin of death" and  "if wishes were horses, beggars will ride".
I truly wonder if any of these could draw me closer to you, just one last time; to cuddle,kiss & hug each other & say our proper Goodbyes.

My best friend & lifelong partner is no more.
My Queen,the very reason for my existence & success isn't anywhere to be seen.
The only rose which grew from concrete...my heart bleeds ceaselessly.

Everyday I stare at the mirror,thoughts running deep through my mind...more like I am talking to the man in the mirror.

Its hard on me Mummy!
Yes its so damn hard for me to come to terms with the fact that you are gone.

I miss your touch,smiles,our intimacy & our bond secondary to none.
I miss touching you and playing with your left hand while sucking my lower lip.
I miss wrapping my arms around you every time & feeling damn proud in front of the ladies cos you simply outclassed them with your stunning beauty.
Who's gonna check out my looks, tell me when I need a haircut or which outfit looks good on me.
I wonder who's even gonna call me 'Daddy-Boy' now that you are gone.

Remember that day back in 2009 when we watched MJ's funeral at home & were both so saddened by it;
John Mayer's tribute performance of his Hit song 'Human Nature' touched me a lot & has been an all time favorite since then.
I guess it now all makes sense to me

[Chorus]
"If They Say -
Why, Why, Tell 'Em That Is Human Nature
Why, Why, Does He Do Me That Way
If They Say -
Why, Why, Tell 'Em That Is Human Nature
Why, Why, Does He Do Me That Way
I Like Livin' This Way
I Like Lovin' This Way."


Mummy it is well...I'll tell them exactly that its human nature.

Its Human Nature that we love you but God loved you more & decided to call you  to eternal glory,to dine with angels and saints.

Its only Human Nature that I gained another angel in my life...because you aren't dead; you just moved to become my guardian angel. And you are watching over us.

I can't wait for the day we are reunited again.

I LOVE YOU & ALWAYS WILL.
Your Daddy"

""Dear Mummy Gina,
      Thank you for being the caring mother that you were. You promised to come back to us, your children here in the US, by September of 2014
I am still trying to process the fact that you have left us suddenly to join Daddy and Mummy Anne. I will for ever cherish the times we spent together as a family. Thank you Mom for all the advise, love and concern you showed us while you were here in the US.
  Mummy Gina, your love and empathy touched every one's heart because you sowed the seeds of forgiveness and humility for all your children, family and friends to emulate. It is so difficult to come to terms with the fact that you have gone ahead. Mom, you will forever remain in our hearts. May your gentle soul rest in perfect peace.....   Amen ."

"Mah Regie, for us, you've gone so soon but The Lord knows better than us. From the first day we met in Bafoussam, you showed your kindness, caring n love to me n my late dad and u open your doors for us. When ever I came visiting u made me feel at home. You left for Yaounde n as faith made it, I followed to yaounde some years later. Once more I felt at home. You lived the life of faith, you embrace all kids as yours n you will be dearly n forevermissed. We loved you but God loves you more Mah, may your gentle soul RIP."

"My dear sister, words can’t express the pain in my heart. Where are you sister?  I have been to your room several times to check on you but all I see are your luggage’s. I have been waiting for your return as promised but no phone call. You called me your Angel but yet you left your angel without a word. My sweet sister, you are now my angel and all I can ask for is your protection. You were my rock, mentor, best friend, sister and adviser but left me in the middle of nowhere. Who do I turn to or where do I go?
Sister you promised me during our last conversation that you will get up and walk because God and your Angels have healed you but I missed the message. I told you we all are praying for you to walk but little did I know your angels and God had come to take you home.
Sister you have left a vacuum that will never be filled. You were the mother, sister, and auntie of all. You were the light of the entire family but yet you left them with broken hearts. You left a legacy that no one can contain but I promised you, I am going to keep that legacy burning. Your mother was banking her life or home going celebration on you but yet you left her in an empty house. She said her life celebration is going to be like that of a king because of your friends and all your meeting groups but yet you left her to mourn you.
What a pain you have caused your mother? You went home to take care of her but yet you left her with so much pain.  God made you as the touch bearer for a reason but yet you have abandoned your role. I have all hope you will continue your role in heaven.
Dearest sister I love you so much but God loves you most. The only thing I am hanging on,  is knowing that you are with your maker and at peace. I keep hearing your soft voice within me but you have faded away like the morning stars. You went too soon like candle light that has been blown by the wind. There is no more pain, nor sorrow.
Sister, build a mansion in heaven for all of us like you did on earth. My dear sister, you fought a good fight and kept on a good faith. Ride on, Ride on to your father’s house where we shall meet to part no more. Rest in the bosom of the Lord.
Your Angel and little sister
RIP , RIP, RIP!!!

"Your last voicemail to me mummy was "Pe stay well, do your best, hang in there and leave the rest to God. I never knew you were leaving me so soon mummy. Anty infact I am lost of words. All I can say is I know you smiling over us all in Heaven till we meet again."

"Auntie Regi
“The fear of death follows from the fear of life.  A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”  I know that you lived a full and spiritual life that was so prepared for the Master’s call.  Death is the next adventure of life and knowing that you never loved to be late on earth, you decided to take your leave too early.  
You have left us with such a vacuum that will never be filled.  You ordinarily became myth in this family by your exemplary deeds and by standing on the right side of history.  May the Angels and the Heavenly Choirs sing in chorus, “Well done good and faithful servant, come and share your Master’s joy.”
Requiescat in Pace.  Amen

"Auntie Regina Yepu Kilo, though you are gone, the Sweet Memories Remain.
Since I got the call that brought the news of your so sudden passing over to Daddy’s side, for some strange reason, my thoughts never pained, rather, they merely travelled back in time to a place where only sweet memories dwell.  Since that evening, I have recalled so many things about our life together in the days when Daddy was the center of our world. I have wept a tear or two for you, but not in pain because I know your soul is in a good place. With that smile, with your beautiful heart, it definitely has to be."
